The Bank is donating money to The Salvation Army, Jersey, which will be used to provide hundreds of food parcels.

In March, HSBC made a global fund available to support the international medical response to the COVID-19 spread, protect vulnerable people and ensure food security around the world. This has formed part of the Jersey donation with additional funding from HSBC in the island.

Commenting on the donation, Chantal Le Goff, Head of Sustainability, HSBC Channel Islands and Isle of Man, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic is creating serious hardship for some islanders who are struggling both financially and practically. HSBC wants to help the local community and we hope this donation will offer some relief for islanders. The Salvation Army, Jersey Is working tirelessly amongst our island communities, and we would like to thank them for all they are doing during this time.”

Richard Nunn, Corps Officer, The Salvation Army, Jersey also commented: “The Salvation Army in Jersey are so grateful for this donation. It enables us to maintain a good, healthy and consistent supply of food to those who are really struggling in Jersey during these difficult times. We are determined to help those most in need, and this help offered by HSBC is a vital part of this effort.”
