C5 Raises £12k for local charities
C5 Alliance has raised almost £12,000 in two charities in events for Macmillan Jersey, The Neil Hussey Heart Charity and the Jersey Stroke Association.
The C5 Cycle Challenge was created in memory of Neil “Ginge” Hussey and participants covered a distance of either 100km for the more experienced or a 50km route for recreational riders. The event was an overwhelming tribute to Neil, raising a total of £2,800, as well as being a huge accomplishment for all who took part. Funds raised were split between The Neil Hussey Heart Charity and the Jersey Stroke Association, a charity very close to Neil’s family.
As well as the Cycle Challenge, Rob Leader, Group Managing Director at C5 Alliance, recently hosted a charity golf day at the Royal Jersey Golf Club in aid of Jersey Mencap and Macmillan, raising £9,000 in total.
Macmillan Jersey supports people who are affected by cancer and C5 has been heavily involved in supporting the charity for a number of years through sponsoring the ‘Jersey’s Greatest Coffee Morning’ and fundraising for various other events including a cycle ride from Geneva to Nice. Mr Leader was part of a 42-strong team covering 535km in four days, raising more than £150,000.
“C5 Alliance places fundraising for charity and supporting the local community high on its list of priorities. We are proud to continue to support the life-saving work Macmillan, The Neil Hussey Heart Charity and the Jersey Stroke Association carry out on a daily basis and special thanks to our Head of Relationship Management, Rose McCloskey for working hard to organise two very successful events. We’re more than happy to do whatever we can to highlight the dedication of these causes, be it through golfing, cycling or even drinking coffee” said Mr Leader.
The C5 Alliance Macmillan coffee morning is taking place on Wednesday 26th September at C5’s 25 Esplanade offices. Everyone is welcome to attend the event and local businesses are also encouraged to host a coffee morning of their own. More information can be found here.
