Prosperity Day: charities receive early essential support

Posted: 22/04/2020

Prosperity Day, the annual charity event run by Prosperity 24/7 is scheduled to run as planned in June 2020 however, sooner than planned, Prosperity have distributed £6,000 between the two chosen charities, the JSPCA and Philips Footprints.

Debra D’Orleans, CEO of the JSPCA stated “We are delighted to be chosen as one of the charities to benefit from this year’s Prosperity Day, as this is always a fantastic event. We would like to say a big thank you for making an interim donation as this helps the JSPCA continue its crucial work of rescuing, rehabilitating, and caring for Jersey animals and wildlife in need during these difficult times.”

Jo Nash, Founder, Philip’s Footprints said “We really appreciate the support from not only Prosperity 24/7, who really give their all organising this brilliant challenge, but also the teams who have already signed up for Prosperity Day. These are increasingly difficult times for all charities and we are so very grateful for this interim donation that will help us continue our aims to support bereaved parents but also to promote safer pregnancies and improve outcomes for babies.”

Chris Clark, CEO of Prosperity added, “we had already received registration fees from a dozen generous businesses who have signed up to take part in the sixth Prosperity Day event on Friday 19th June. Whilst we don’t know whether the current lock down restrictions will have been lifted by June, we do know that the event will be happening at some point this year and that now, more than ever, local charities need the support of Industry. It makes absolute sense to share 100% of the registration fees we have received to date, plus a little extra from our colleagues, to help these two local charities, immediately.

I would like to personally thank all of the teams already registered to take part in Prosperity Day 2020 namely, the Ports of Jersey, Santander International, Accuro Fiduciary, Bedell Group, PwC, KPMG, Ogier, LGL Group, Oak, Vistra, Islands Insurance, Rossboroughs and Sure International. Without this level of support we would not be able to run a successful event once more, with the aspiration to smash through the £100,000 barrier in total funds raised over the last six years for local charities.

Should any lycra clad cyclists be keen to take part in the sixth Prosperity Day event, you only need a team of three who are be able to ride a bike, shout for each other, raise money for charity and have fun – that is about the sum of it!”

Prosperity are inviting eighteen corporate rivals to take to the saddle once more and #VentYourFury and go #HeadToHead. For more information or to register see here
