£16,000 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey at an annual golf day hosted by the Channel Islands’ largest technology solutions provider C5 Alliance, which is part of the BDO Group in Jersey.
The money raised will help the charity offer free emotional support, practical information, and group support to people in Jersey with any type of cancer and at any stage, along with their families and friends.
This is C5 Alliance’s sixth time hosting the golf day at the Royal Jersey Golf Club, the proceeds, £5,300 greater than last year’s raising, have gone to a variety of local charities.
Stephanie Gibaut, Head of Fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey said:
“We truly can’t thank C5 Alliance enough for their amazing fundraising efforts. This incredible £16,000 will enable us to continue offering the vital cancer support services so desperately needed for local people affected by cancer here in Jersey. We are so grateful”
Matthew Corbin, CEO of BDO Group in Jersey, said:
“We are thrilled to have raised £16,000 – a record amount for our annual golf day. Macmillan is an extremely worthy cause and supports so many of our Islanders. We are very grateful for the generosity of all who took part and donated, and our sponsors JJ Fox Trading, Randalls, and the Royal Jersey Golf Club for helping us to host this event and raise these important funds for Macmillan.”
