Sure Community Foundation reaches fundraising milestone

Thursday 01 December 2022


The Sure Community Foundation has racked up £300,000 this year - which coincides with a decade of giving to causes across the Bailiwick.

The Foundation is managed by trustees formed from Sure employees and is funded by a combination of staff and business donations. It aims to play a role in the communities across Guernsey, Jersey, and the Isle of Man, and says that since 2012 dozens of charities have benefitted.

In Guernsey the Foundation pledged to support Headway’s weekly veteran sessions for two years. Headway supportsislanders and their families who are living with the long-term effects of a brain injury. 

The donation of £5,700 will cover the cost of renting Headway’s dedicated space at the KGV as well as food, drinks, and entertainment for the group. The money will also be used to fund the provision of Headway’s specialist staff.

Philippa Stahelin, Executive Director of Headway, said: “The Sure Community Foundation has been involved with Headway for a long time and we are so grateful for their support over the years. We simply cannot run our services without help from foundations like the Sure Community Foundation. 

By offering to fund Headway’s veteran sessions for the next two years, the Foundation has made it possible for us to plan ahead, undertake new projects, and provide our members with the best possible service.”

Lucienne De La Mare, Chair of the Sure Community Foundation, added: “We have been in place for ten years now and it’s a great achievement to have reached the £300k milestone. The Foundation’s work has made a valuable impact across the community, and we’d like to thank the team for their dedication and kindness which makes this all possible”.

Other Channel Island charities that have been supported in 2022 include Bright Beginnings, GROW Limited, Relate Guernsey, Guernsey Voluntary Service, Citizens Advice Guernsey, Jersey Royal British Legion, Dementia Jersey, Jersey Macmillan Cancer and Brightly Jersey.
