Sure Community Foundation reaches huge £300k milestone

The Sure Community Foundation, a registered charity that offers support through donations to non-profit organisations, has reached the huge £300,000 milestone which coincides with a decade of giving to great causes in the Bailiwick.

The Foundation is managed by trustees formed from Sure employees and is purely funded by a combination of staff and business donations. It plays a vital role in the communities across Guernsey, Jersey, and the Isle of Man, and since 2012 60 charities have benefitted.

This year the Foundation donated £600 to Brighter Futures to go towards the cost of five handsets. Brighter Futures is a local charity supporting parents, families, and young people in Jersey. The handsets have allowed workers to have WhatsApp, meaning they can communicate with clients for free. It also allows key workers to video call and text from any location.

Tina Scott, Keyworker from Brighter Futures, said: “The Sure Community Foundation very generously donated a smartphone to every keyworker at Brighter Futures which has broken down a lot of barriers to the way that we communicate with our clients.” 

Lucienne De La Mare, Chair of the Sure Community Foundation, said: “We have been in place for ten years now and it’s a great achievement to have reached the £300k milestone. The Foundation’s work has made a valuable impact across the community, and we’d like to thank the team for their dedication and kindness which makes this all possible.”

Other Jersey charities that have been supported by the Sure Community Foundation in 2022 include Royal British Legion, Dementia Jersey, Macmillan Cancer and Brightly Jersey.
