At Guernsey Electricity we understand that we have a social responsibility to give something back to the community, so each year we work closely with many local charities and organisations to support initiatives which benefit youth and the community here in Guernsey, these include:
Sponsoring an initiative to help local children stay safe in the dark winter months. We contributed to a radio campaign, visited schools and gave out over 20,000 reflective stickers.
Every year we produce a calendar with all the proceeds benefitting a local charity. All the photos in the calendar are taken by our employees.
We have a close working relationship the local government in Normandy through our under-sea cable network - so it’s fitting that we support this highly-regarded race.
We sponsor the Safety Calling Workbooks and help children practicing 999 emergency calls with our staff volunteering as 'emergency operators'.
We have sponsored a community initiative of growing tomatoes in the traditional way with the help of the Scouts. Employees have also got their hands dirty by undertaking gardening, clearing and planting in the group's greenhouse.
Guernsey Electricity has been sponsoring the Youth Award for a number of years which acknowledges the dedication, commitment and talent of young people in Guernsey.
Guernsey Electricity employees and their families and friends volunteered to clean up a local beach and record the items found for a national survey.
Each year Guernsey Electricity sponsors the Electric Shocks by purchasing kit and paying for subscriptions.
We are proud to support the Pink Ladies Sunset walk which is held every two years raising money to support women in Guernsey with breast cancer.
Guernsey Electricity joined up with Every Child Our Future to help young islanders learn vital maths skills with the donation of a special box of games and puzzles.
We are pleased to have been able to support the 5th Guernsey Scouts with the purchase of a brand new camp tent.
On the last friday of every month we hold a mufti day in aid of a good cause which is voted for by our employees. We also hold regular cake sales for charity which always prove popular!
