Prosperity Day continues to benefit the community in multiple ways…
We recently provided cheques to Autism Jersey as well as Mind Jersey at our offices in St. Helier, each receiving £5,749.00. In addition to this, we provided Autism Guernsey a cheque for the same amount in recognition of the fantastic work that they do as well as acknowledging the fantastic contribution our 22 friends from the Guernsey Roleurs Cycle Club made by cycling around the perimeter of both Guernsey and Jersey on Prosperity Day.
Prosperity Day will positively impact the lives of in excess of 2,595 Islanders which the charities support.
Chris Clark, CEO of Prosperity 24.7 outlined “when we set out to do something that made a difference, we could not have imagined the positive impact we have had on so many peoples lives – it is simply incredible what the local business community have managed to achieve and the direct and positive effect we can all have by pulling together for these incredible charities is simply amazing – humbled does not get close to how I feel about Prosperity Day.”
Geraldine Evans, Prosperity 24.7’s CLO is seen handing over the cheque to Jason Green of Collas Crill, who accepted the cheque on behalf of Autism Guernsey. It was great to note that they were keen for a Guernsey team to take part again next year which brings us on to what does 2016 have in store for Prosperity Day…?
Prosperity Day in 2016
All, you will be glad to hear that we are up for the challenge once more, are you?
Do you want to #VentYourFury and participate in the #HeadToHeadToHead in 2016, revenge is a dish best served cold but as you know from last year, no matter what the weather it will be hot on those bikes!
We hope you are up for the challenge once more, whether it is to defend your success in the heats or to avenge defeat, we will let you set your own agenda but whatever it is, be sure to know that just like last year, our tomfoolery really impacts people’s lives for the better.
Prosperity 24.7 are presently giving last years teams first refusal to participate in 2016 – but we are inviting expressions of interest to enable us to build another phenomenal team event for the local business community – enabling you to settle old scores in no safer a place, in the middle of St. Helier, on a bike, with your colleagues and the public screaming you on for support.
We have secured the same space in Broad Street for Friday 22nd July and this year we have chosen Caring Cooks and Wet Wheels as the worthy charities to benefit from the generosity of the Channel Island’s most competitive corporate sportswomen and men – you lot…!
We look forward to hearing from you soon – applications should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org – the event will again be selective and limited in numbers so we want to hear why we should see you in lycra? We will save spaces until January 29th 2016 at which point we will ‘go public’ if any spaces are still unfilled to raise the profile of the charities, the participating teams and of course, the event itself.
Have a great Christmas and New Year in the meantime and we will be in touch in January to start ticking off the worthy competitors and populating our team lists for the summer of 2016 which gives you plenty of time to get training on the Bkool turbo trainer to ensure you are ready for a stage of the Tour de France or perhaps something a little different this year, only time will tell…
Thanks again for your support last year and we look forward to welcoming one of your teams to the top of the podium in 2016!
