Standard Bank Jersey hosted an evening with renowned British explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes at La Moye Golf Club last month. Sir Ranulph entertained the audience with stories from his many record-breaking expeditions. ‘Sir Ran’ gave an insight into the huge amount of work that goes into getting these expeditions off the ground, the harrowing conditions the explorers are exposed to, as well as the real sense of achievement that comes from having raised over £19 million for charity over the years. Sir Ranulph said: “It is a particular privilege to be hosted by Standard Bank Jersey. Africa, particularly South Africa, is a home from home for me. I moved to Cape Town when I was one and lived there until I was 12 and I still have a lot of family there.
