Community Grants Awarded To Local Charities
The RSA Community Grant programme was set up in response to the Coronavirus pandemic to provide cash support to local charities, vulnerable groups and charities facing operational challenges or reduced funding.
Staff from across all RSA’s UK operations, including Insurance Corporation in the Channel Islands, were able to submit applications. Hundreds of nominations were received and we were delighted that Safer in Guernsey and Jersey Alzheimer’s Association were both awarded grants from RSA.
“I cannot tell you how grateful we are for this very generous donation, it will make such a difference to us. You are absolutely right when you say that Covid-19 had an impact, it meant we had to quickly secure an additional refuge due to the demand which resulted in additional costs. Thank you to all involved”.
Fiona Naftel, Chair of Safer.
During lockdown we also asked the team at Insurance Corporation to nominate various local charities to support, with the following six charities selected: Salvation Army, Age Concern & JSPCA in Jersey, and Safer, GSPCA & Guernsey Food-bank in Guernsey.
The team wanted to give something back to those in need or those helping people or animals, with all donations being very gratefully received.
“We are delighted that the RSA Community Grant initiative awarded two local charities a cash injection grant. We hope that all these grants, along with some of the donations Insurance Corporation made during lockdown, will have a really positive impact on our charities or community support groups who have been working so hard to support our local communities, and those most in need.”
Mark Marshall, Managing Director, Insurance Corporation.
