Local firm raises money for charity

Tue, 12 Jan 2021


A Manx company has raised over £1000 for local charities in the last 12 months.

JTC raised funds for Alder Hey – Crohns and Colitis Department by holding dress-down Fridays, a Christmas raffle, a Manx themed bake sale to celebrate the Manx bank holiday and a ‘Name the Gonk’ competition – a festive Scandinavian folklore creature with a white beard.

The firm has also been helping the Lions Club Isle of Man by raising money for Manx Children in Need with them, and by laying woodchip on the oncology courtyard of the hospital.

A financial donation was given to the Graih Homeless Shelter as well, with staff giving food items to the Shelter through a reverse advent calendar – where gifts are given, rather than received.

Staff also volunteered for Manx Wildlife Trust in Calf of Man, helping the wardens who live on the Island to remove weeds from a bog, which is key habitat for local wildlife.
