New charity support from JT in 2023

Thursday 09 February 2023

Charities, including Autism Guernsey, benefitted from £40,000 of funds raised by JT last year, with the telco looking forward to another charitable year in 2023.

With some support and several tech donations from JT, Autism Guernsey organised successful events, from a digital photography competition reflecting how autistic people see the world, to a fun yet competitive day of baking and of course the annual fashion show which featured many of AG’s dedicated volunteers as models.

JT Community Giving has now been launched to help spread more support around the jurisdictions it operates in. 

The first round of applications has closed with 28 successful bids from across the Channel Islands set to receive help ranging from funding, devices, subscriptions, and technical support to hands-on help from some of JT’s volunteers.

Mandy Rowlinson from Autism Guernsey said: “We’ve had the amazing opportunity of working with the JT team over the past 12 months on a wide range of activities. Together we’ve not only raised funds and awareness of what we do but we’ve also been able to expand our coding club thanks to the donation of much needed equipment. It’s been a really successful partnership, helping us to drive real change for autistic people and their families and we are very grateful for their fundraising and support.” 

Kate Marshall, Head of Guernsey Enterprise at JT, and pictured above added: “I’m so proud of everything that we’ve collectively achieved with Autism Guernsey, they are a fantastic charity giving their time and experience where it’s most needed. The launch of JT Community Giving will help us to extend our support to lots more deserving causes. 

“We’ve been truly overwhelmed by the number of applications received so far, and it’s great to see some of the deeply thoughtful projects already in plan for 2023 that we can help with. Being part of a community unites us all and I’m delighted that we can help in so many ways through our new scheme.”
