Jersey Round Table Sleigh Run

We were delighted to once again to have had the opportunity to support the Jersey Round Table with their Santa Sleigh Run by providing 30 tubs of yummy chocolates. This superb event heads to all corners of the island over the course of the week, delighting many children and adults alike.

Brand Champions Christmas Jumper Competition

We teamed up with Brand Champions and other local retailers to support the #shoplocalthischristmas message in Jersey with the start of the ‘Little Brand Champions’ Christmas jumper competition.

The three winners were unveiled on Thursday 16th December 2021 at Liberty Wharf. All three designs were made into gingerbread people and presented to the talented youngsters, along with a selection of prizes which included a Percy Pig hamper and a Christmas goodies hamper donated by ourselves.

Charity Raffle for Clic Sargent Jersey

Iceland in St Peters Jersey where kind enough to organise an amazing Christmas charity Raffle in aid of CLIC Sargent Jersey. There was a range of goodies up for grabs including a soft cuddly toy, hamper, a bottle of prosecco and tin of yummy sweets.

Our MD, Mike Rutter drew the winning tickets for the Christmas Raffle at our Iceland St Peters store. An amazing amount of £151 was raised in aid of CLIC Sargent Jersey.

Brighter Futures Christmas Appeal

We were thrilled to have had the opportunity to contribute to Brighter Futures Christmas Appeal by donating festive selection boxes.

Such a worthy cause, Brighter Futures were hard at work delivering all the 145 gift bags to the children and young people they have been supporting over Christmas. This includes those within the Government of Jersey care, either on or off-island, along with care leavers, their siblings and children. For many care leavers this may be the only present they receive at Christmas.

Christmas Jumper Day

After the last two years, we thought we could all do with some fun AND make the world better with a sweater. On Friday 10th December 2021 we all participated in Christmas Jumper Day in support of Mind Jersey, raising £100.

The Good Companions Clubs Christmas Lunch

To help ensure everyone has a memorable Christmas Lunch, year on year we have provided The Good Companions Club with fresh turkeys with all the trimmings to feed all 200 members. We also supplied 200 boxes of Matchmaker chocolates so that everyone had something to take home with them too. Below is a selection of photos of the members enjoying their meal.

Chocolate Donation to Age Concern

Tania and the team from Morrisons Daily CI at Val Plaisant spread some Christmas cheer over the holidays by donating some yummy boxes of chocolates to the lovely people at Age Concern Jersey.

Mince Pies Donation to St. Johns Parish Church

Marks and Spencers spread some festive joy by donating some of their delicious mince pies to St Johns Parish Church for their coffee morning.
