Sure shortlisted in Community Foundation Awards


Sure has been shortlisted for the Corporate Social Responsibility Award at this year's Guernsey Community Foundation Awards.

The awards, now in their 11th year, aim to celebrate local charities, organisations, groups, individuals and businesses who work to raise money and carry out projects for the benefit of the community.

Sure has been shortlisted for its active involvement in the community, including its increased support to those in need this year. 

At the start of lockdown, employees fundraised for the firm's charitable foundation, in order to help combat the strain lockdown was having in the community. The company then matched the amount raised.

As a result, the foundation is still lending devices to households across the island to help those who are most vulnerable to 'stay connected'.

Sure launched the Sure Community Foundation in Guernsey in 2012, and since then it has donated more than £200,000 to about 60 registered charities within the Bailiwick.

“We are extremely proud to have been shortlisted for a third time for this award," said Karen Jagger of the Sure Community Foundation. "Our team at the Sure Community Foundation is always incredibly busy, but this year has had to go above and beyond to help our Bailiwick during extremely challenging circumstances.

“Being shortlisted is a testament to the hard work of our 11 committee members and all of the other Sure employees who put their time and money into the Foundation to make our impact on our island as effective as possible. We look forward to the awards night which always showcases such wonderful charitable work. We wish everyone that’s been nominated the best of luck.”

The awards ceremony is taking place on 17 November at St James, where the winners of each category will be announced.
