Saffery Champness Rotary Walk invites charities to apply for funds

February 21st, 2014 by Saffery Champness

The Saffery Champness Rotary Walk committee invites local charities to apply for some of the funds the event raises in 2014.

Submissions to the committee can be made by any local registered charity which is in need of financial support for a specific project or initiative.

Applications need to be made by 31 March 2014.

Lisa Vizia, Saffery Champness’ director, and some of the firm’s staff, is joining the walk’s organising committee which helps to review the applications and select projects they would like to support this year.

“We are particularly keen for charities to come forward to tell us about any projects they need financial help with.”

“It is important from the very outset for all the walkers to know who their fundraising efforts will be benefiting.”

Any charities that would like to apply for funding should email or collect a form on weekdays from Saffery Champness’ office at La Tonnelle House, Les Banques, St Sampson’s.

Submissions of all sizes will be considered for funding and should be made in writing outlining full details of the fundraising project and received no later than the end of March 2014.

One of the recipients of funding from proceeds of the 2013 walk was St John Ambulance and Rescue Service for the purchase of a new trolley stretcher to be used in an emergency road ambulance.

Dean De La Mare, senior officer of St John Ambulance and Rescue Service, said “we were delighted to receive a new Stryker Stretcher by way of donation following the 2013 walk.”

“We are very grateful for the continued support we receive from such events and the kind generosity of the Guernsey public.”

The Saffery Champness Rotary Walk will take place on Saturday 7 June 2014.

Cheques will be presented to this year’s charities at a post event reception in the autumn once all the sponsorship funds have been submitted.

Online registration for the Saffery Champness Rotary Walk will be available soon.

In the meantime walkers can confirm their intention to participate via email to Walkers can choose to register to complete the entire route or any part of it.
