At the halfway point of its annual staff fundraising challenge, JT has already raised over £10,000 towards their goal of £20,000 which will then be shared among its chosen charities for 2016.
JT’s annual charity day took place on Friday 17 June with Channel Island staff taking part in a raft of fundraising activities including cake sales, quizzes, raffles, a staff BBQ and retail store collections. To date, £5,000 has been raised across the Channel Island offices which has then been matched by JT to boost the annual fundraising target at the mid-point to £10,000.
JT’s Head of Marketing, Tamara O’Brien said: “Our staff always get behind our annual charity day and this year was no exception, it was a fun-filled day reinforcing our charity commitments with some fantastic team-focussed activities across all our offices. It was great to see our staff wholeheartedly get behind this with all sorts of fun and different events, from pitting their wits against each other in a staff quiz, to stretching and dancing in yoga and Salsa sessions. The result of their combined efforts is really encouraging and means we are already halfway towards our fundraising target, with more events and fundraising opportunities planned between now and the end of the year.”
JT’s chosen charities for 2016 are Friends of SCBU (Special Care Baby Unit) in Jersey and The Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation, in Guernsey.
