Jersey's finance industry raises over £23k for charities in one week

News Team, 12/11/2021

Jersey Finance’s fundraising week – sponsored by Rathbones – has raised £23,890 for local charities.

The ‘Together We Shine Fundraising Week’, which took place at the end of September, saw financial services firms participate in a range of fundraising initiatives to raise funds for local charities via the Association of Jersey Charities (AJC).

Jersey Finance - the promotional body for the island's financial sector - is partnering with the AJC this year in a bid to raise £60,000 for the AJC to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the island’s finance industry.

Thirty finance industry professionals were “sent over the edge” in a charity abseil down Mont Orgueil and several teams took part in the “60km in 6 days” sponsored walking challenge across the island.

Amy Bryant, deputy chief executive at Jersey Finance, said she was really pleased with the fundraising efforts.

“It truly showcases the care and commitment our Island has towards local the community – not just during fundraising week but all year round. It was great to see that so many people from our finance industry got involved and all for admirable and worthy causes.”
