Employees at RBC Wealth Management have also supported JAA this year, having broken records for the second year running by raising over £60,000 for JAA as their nominated 2017 Charity of the Year. The money raised by RBC staff from internal events, such as a summer raffle, a team sky dive and dress down days, plus external volunteering efforts in collaboration with the JAA, have contributed to the charity’s aim of increasing islanders’ understanding of dementia. Mark Blamey, Manager of the JAA, said: ‘We were delighted to have been chosen as RBC’s Charity of the Year for 2017. The company’s exceptional fundraising efforts will be hugely important to our work in educating the Jersey community on how to care for those affected by dementia, ultimately improving the standards of living for those affected by the disease.’

RBC Wealth Management staff have nominated the Jersey Brain Tumour Charity as their chosen Charity of the Year for 2018. RBC Wealth Management is committed to making a lasting social impact through responsible giving to charitable organisations across the Channel Islands.  This year, the company is launching a Donations Fund, with two donation grants of £5,000 to support local young people. Jersey charities that help young islanders gain access to meaningful employment through work experience and skills development, plus organisations that support youth mental wellbeing, are invited to apply. To be eligible for the funds, applications must demonstrate the positive impact the grant will have on Jersey’s youth and which consider opportunities for RBC Wealth Management employees to support the initiative. The deadline for applications is the end of this month on 31st March.
