The goodies were certainly received well by all participants, not just the children!

Brightly collection box in Morrisons

18th June

Brightly had a donation box in our Morrisons, First Tower and Castle Quay 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.

Money raised by Brightly either stays in Jersey for the benefit of Island residents or, in cases where local children and young people must be cared for off-island, may be made available to support them whilst away.

We were thrilled to help this 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. “On behalf of Brightly, I would like to say a massive thank you for allowing us to have our collection box in Morrison’s” – Wendy Nerac.

SandpiperCI donate to Island Walk

19th June

Sandpiper donated the tea and Coffee for the Island walk this year. Walking 48 miles in 1 day may sound daunting, but with some training and support from family and friends it can be the best experience and hopefully return to walk again to enjoy the stunning scenery of the Jersey coastline. There are several check in points for walkers to have a rest and our Tea & Coffee donation will be provided!
