Prosperity Day 2021 – Raising essential funds for Macmillan and Dementia Jersey
The team at Prosperity feel honoured to support both Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey and Dementia Jersey this year, culminating in a presentation last night to both, with each receiving a cheque for £6,484.10 raised by the pedalling power of Prosperity Day in September.
Fifteen teams took part to go head to head to head in the saddle, with Ogier reigning victorious when both race and fund raising performance were combined to secure the top spot on our podium.
The funds provide essential resources to two critical local charities, both of whom have been impacted by Covid-19 and the direct issues this causes to fundraising opportunities. Our team were once more, incredibly proactive, as they were in 2020, enabling our Prosperity Day event to be undertaken safely and successfully at the Jersey Museum, whom we would also like to thank along with The Yard for catering our evening event.
Steph Gibaut, Head of Operations and Fundraising from Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey advised “A massive thank you to Prosperity 24/7 for this incredible donation! We are so grateful for your support. It has been an amazing year working alongside your wonderful team.”
Claudine Snape, CEO of Dementia Jersey said, “Thank you so much for raising this incredible sum for our charity, your support goes a long way, contributing to the costs to deliver activities and support services to over 400 people, affected by dementia, every month”.
Prosperity Day has been running annually since 2015, over the last seven years Prosperity, with the incredible support of participating teams, have raised over £118,000 which has been distributed to fifteen incredible charities. Next year, we are proud to support Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and the Re-Wild campaign as well as the RNLI Jersey, both of whom are ready to respond, whether the support needed is protecting global habitats and species or local residents, visitors and boat owners in distress.
We look forward to holding Prosperity Day on Friday 15th July, 2022 – registration will be opening soon – lets hope it is a record year!
