Swimarathon team makes a £1,300 splash
Jersey Electricity’s 20-man Swimarathon team raised almost £1,300 for the Lions Club of Jersey’s chosen charities, including 15 organisations that help people with disabilities and Channel Islands Air Search. Having raised £648 in sponsorship, the Company agreed to match staff's efforts with a corporate donation of the same. This year's team included staff from across the business including, the Energy Division Director, Chief Engineer, Senior Project Engineer, Planning and Distribution Engineers, Civil Works, Health and Safety, Finance, Customer Care, Retail, JEBS and Procurement. JE staff raised over £10,000 for local charities last year and this year they have already helped the Teenage Cancer Trust, Autism Jersey, Headway, Friends of Jersey Oncology and the Youth Enquiry Service (YES), Jersey.
