Here at Deloitte Guernsey we have several ways in which we contribute and raise money for the local community.
Within the office we hold a monthly dress down day in order to raise money for charity. Last year, we supported various local & non local charities, including Guernsey Bowel Cancer, ActionAid and the Alzheimer’s society.
Several of our staff take part in the Quarter Marathon each year which allows them to raise personal sponsorship in aid of the charity Save the Children. Following this are the half and full Guernsey Marathons which are organised in order to raise funds for charities such as Cancer Research UK.
In 2009 the ladies in the office took part in the Pink Ladies Coastal Sunset Walk and raised an impressive £1.3k, which the firm matched.
|We held our second clean up of La Mare de Carteret’s pond. Volunteers from the office were split into two 2 hour shifts, morning and afternoon and we made good progress in clearing rubbish and reeds from the pond, benefiting both the community and the environment.|
Our monthly dress down days will continue to be held and the charities involved have been selected.
It is anticipated that teams from the Guernsey office will be entered into various events during the year, such as the Pink Ladies Coastal Sunset Walk, and the quarter, half and full marathons.
We are also planning another team day cleaning the pond at La Mare de Carteret, which will be the 3rd year Deloitte have undertaken this work.
