Close Finance CI shortlisted for Jersey Style Awards 2019

Close Finance CI are ecstatic to announce that they have been shortlisted for the 2019 Jersey Style Awards for the Corporate Philanthropy category. Thanks to the hardworking team through their tireless fundraising efforts, Close Finance CI have been recognised for raising over £5,000 for local charities. 

At the end of 2018, Rachel Scott Renouf, Operational Monitoring Support Officer and other members of the Jersey team, collected £1,701.99 on behalf of the JSPCA’s Save Our Shelter campaign by creating hand painted pebbles. This incredible sum was matched by Close Brothers (parent company of Close Finance CI), bringing the grand total to £3403.98. Since then Rachel has continued to paint and sell the pebbles, with the total raised now over £4,000. The team has also raised funds for Jersey Hospice, the Jersey Hedgehog Preservation Group and Comic Relief, participated in a number of beach cleans and also planted trees at St Martins School which will be a legacy for school children and the local community in years to come.

Close Finance CI are proud to work closely with many charities and are a small business that values the local community.
