Santander has a fantastic legacy in supporting charities all over the world, and having recently increased our presence in the Island we felt it was important to support a charity that has strong links to the Island. With this in mind, Santander Corporate Banking is proud to be support the Jersey help a Child charity for 2012.
Help a Jersey Child was set up six years ago to raise funds for deserving and needy children in Jersey with the aim of ensuring that all monies raised stay in the island and help to benefit local children. The charity actively seeks to assist disadvantaged local children and young people, who many being not eligible for support from other sources or charities. It will also consider providing funds to other local children’s charities that may require additional funding.
We have committed to aiding the charity financially through organising events, such as a charity golf day and our sponsorship of the “Big Gig in the Park”, as well as adopting a more hands on approach by encouraging our staff to give up their time to assist with the charity where possible.
