Staff at Investec Bank in the Channel Islands have been able to support a number of local charities during the lockdown.
In Guernsey, funds have been donated to the Guernsey Welfare Service to purchase food parcels for families in need, and Investec's chosen CSR partner the GSPCA has benefitted from staff donating money through the bank's Final Hour Giving scheme.
Two organisations in Jersey were also chosen.
Brendan Stewart, CEO of Investec Private Bank in the Channel Islands said, "At Investec we say we say we live in society, not off it. Right now is one of those times when we will demonstrate this value.
"Coronavirus and its many impacts have made us think about how we can help our communities - meaningfully, directly and immediately. We have listened to the calls to help more families in the Islands, and we have answered with a collective effort that has seen donations to many organisations and individuals in need right now."
Investec staff across the Islands have committed to maintain their charitable support on a rolling monthly basis for the foreseeable future.
