Moore Stephens raises £1000 for The Shelter Trust
Through donations and a raffle, staff at Moore Stephens have raised £1000 for The Shelter Trust.
Volunteers from the financial services company also helped out at the charity’s annual soup kitchen.
John Hodge and Guy Le Maistre from The Shelter Trust visited Moore Stephens just before Christmas to collect the funds and donated items.
The Shelter Trust provides accommodation, food and support for between 70 and 105 people in the homeless community per night over four sites in Jersey.
“These funds will be of great benefit to the local community, and it is great to see a local business getting into the Christmas spirit of giving,” said Mr Hodge.
Moore Stephens ran a shelter week from the 4th to 8th December, when employees did all they could to rally donations. This included a staff raffle where the top prize was a day of annual leave and a designated donation area was set up where staff could leave items that appeared on the Trust’s ‘wish list’.
Six volunteers also went to help at the Trust’s annual soup kitchen in the Royal Square. The team raised £558 through raffle tickets, £292 from staff contributions and a generous cash donation of £150 given by an employee, bringing the total to £1000.
Angus Taylor, Managing Director of Moore Stephens said: “It was through the generosity of employees that we achieved this fantastic result so our thanks go to our great team and their commitment to helping others in need.”
