Miles for healthy minds


A local mental health charity will be receiving a funding boost with every mile islanders drive thanks to a new scheme from a local fuel supplier.

Rubis has chosen Mind Jersey as its redemption partner for the Rubis Card point scheme, which sees customers collect points as they fuel up.

These points can then be redeemed and used at a selection of outlets or donated to one of Rubis’ chosen charities.

Mind Jersey is a local charity that provides information, support and practical help to people living with mental illness, as well as their family and carers.

"We are proud of our long heritage in the Channel Islands and remain committed to supporting our local communities and encouraging community spirit," Nick Crolla, Head of Sales and Marketing at Rubis, said.

‘We must remember these are organisations islanders depend on. We recognise the incredible work of Mind Jersey and Guernsey Mind, even as COVID-19 has affected their plans, events, and fundraising efforts, and are pleased we can provide a way for islanders to give back to the community, through every mile they drive."

Mind Jersey and Guernsey Mind are the second charities to join as redemption partners in each island.

"All charities have been struggling with fundraising this year as we lost income due to the coronavirus pandemic," Hugh Forrester, Operations Manager from Mind Jersey, said.

"But the crisis has been a leveller across the sector, as some have been hit harder than others. We are incredibly grateful to Rubis for the opportunity to become a redemption partner as it allows those who might not otherwise be able to donate, to do so."

Islanders wanting to donate their Rubis points to Mind Jersey can do so by calling or visiting Rubis.
