SandpiperCI support local Charity

SandpiperCI donated wine and chocolate treats to Friends of Mont á l’abbé, a registered charity dedicated to raising money for children with special needs who attend the school.

Due to the government restrictions over the past year, we were delighted to support this excellent cause and hope they the charity were able to generate enough funds in order to provide students with additional treats, resources, and after-school clubs.

SandpiperCI support Brightly

Sandpiper was pleased to donate a hamper to Brightly’s raffle.

Unfortunately, Brightly was forced to cancel their Family Fun day due to covid, which resulted in a significant financial loss for the organisation. However, the charity staged a raffle and raised an incredible £19,959.33 after expenses.

The funds will be used to support to local children and young people from birth to 25 years who are under the care of the Children’s Service, as well as others who are suffering adversity and are in need. This could be anything from educational courses, work clothing, laptops, food vouchers, driving lessons, household items, doctor, dentist, optician appointments, nursery fees for children of care-experienced parents, gym memberships etc.

Wine Warehouse contribute to The West Show

18th August 2021

Wine warehouse donated a wine hamper to Offshore Group, a local firm that had a booth at the Guernsey West Show. The small local company held a charity lottery which was to raise funds for Guernsey Cheshire Home.

Costa Coffee Vouchers Donated

Nikita Connan was scheduled to run the Jersey Marathon as part of her annual challenge following her grandfather’s passing in 2017. However, due to the present circumstances, the Marathon was cancelled.

Instead, Nikita organised a quiz night in which all proceeds will support her Jersey Marathon in 2022, for which she intends to donate all proceeds to Diabetes Jersey.

Costa Coffee is happy to have donated 31 Costa Coffee vouchers and we wish Nikita the best of luck in her 2022 Jersey Marathon participation and hope she raises the necessary cash.

“On behalf of Brightly, I would like to say a massive thank you for allowing us to have our collection box in Morrison’s, Queens Road and Castle Quay” – Wendy Nerac

We were thrilled to help Brightly, a small independent Jersey charity that works to improve the lives of children and young people in residential care, care leavers, and others who are facing adversity and in need.

Brightly had a donation box in our Morrisons Queen’s Road Store where they raised money for training classes, work clothes, iPads, driving lessons, kitchen goods, doctor, dentist, and optician appointments, and gym memberships for young people.

Wine Warehouse, Matalan and Costa support local Charity

Dizzy Donkeys is a registered charity that works in conjunction with the Princess Elizabeth Hospital’s Frossard Ward, a children’s ward at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital.
