The staff at Fairbairn Private Bank in the Isle of Man, Jersey and London have been busy raising money for four good causes. Through a wide range of fundraising schemes, including a monthly staff draw, themed social events, book sales, cake sales and dress down days, a total of £7,542 has been raised. The money has been split equally between the four charities: Isle of Man Hospice Care, Macmillan Cancer Support (IOM), The Jersey Women’s Refuge and Friends of Chernobyl’s Children.
While the former three charities do an outstanding job in supporting the local communities in the Isle of Man and Jersey, the latter charity provides assistance further afield, raising funds to bring children aged between six and thirteen from orphanages or disadvantaged homes in Belarus to the United Kingdom for a month every year.
Julie Moore, Sharon Connor, Linda Quirk and Kirstine McDaid from Fairbairn Private Bank presented the cheques to the charities on behalf of all the staff.
