RBC Wealth Management is proud to announce that its employees raised over £54,000 in 2019 for its charity of the year, Mind Jersey in support of the work it undertakes with children and young people.
The money, which was raised through a variety of fundraising activities, including RBC Race for the Kids, will be used by Mind Jersey to fund a number of initiatives. The charity hopes to partner with local film/video production company, The Observatory, and local drama production company, Love Theatre, to commission productions relating to children and young people with a focus on the Youthful Minds group in particular. Mind Jersey is also planning to use the money raised to extend the contracts of the part-time youth participation worker, develop Wellness Toolboxes, produce educational materials and train new Youthful Minds recruits as Mental Health First Aiders (MHFA).
James Le Feuvre, a representative of Mind Jersey, said: “We are incredibly grateful to RBC for its efforts in raising this sum for our charity. The money raised will ensure that we are able to continue to provide the very best support for the children and young people of Jersey.”
David Bailey, COO at RBC Wealth Management, added: “RBC is committed to supporting important causes on the island and we are delighted that our employee fundraising will help Mind Jersey to continue its vital work with Jersey’s young people, through the Youthful Minds group.”
