Saffery Champness’ association with children’s charity CLIC Sargent benefitted the cause by more than £4,000 over the Christmas period.
Evening skaters who attended the ice rink, which was co-sponsored by the firm, helped raise £750 for the charity which Saffery Champness then doubled, giving the charity £1,500.
James Evans, Ice Skate Guernsey’s project manager, said: “Helping the local branch of CLIC Sargent is a chance for us to thank all the Guernsey residents who supported us this year and particularly Saffery Champness whose sponsorship saved the rink for what turned out to be our most successful season.”
The charity’s coffers were boosted even further when Saffery Champness staged a “final hour” appeal which raised £2,000.
Over half of the Guernsey office’s staff donated their last hour’s pay from 2012 to the charity and it didn’t stop there. A further £500 was raised from the company sending eCards instead of just hard copy Christmas cards.
Kelvin Hudson, Managing Director of Saffery Champness, said; “It’s been a successful first year for our partnership with CLIC, emphasised by the success of the ice rink. We look forward to continuing our fundraising for CLIC throughout 2013.”
Saffery Champness’ next joint venture with CLIC is “50 Shades of Earl Grey,” a pampering tea party at the Duke of Richmond Hotel next month on Sunday 03 March.
