Local charities Guernsey Mind, Safer, MUG and Guernsey Society for Cancer Relief have received a donation of £1500 each from Resolution IT.
Each year, Resolution IT asks its team to put forward suggestions for charities to receive support throughout the year, be it through pro-bono work, voluntary hours and/or monetary donations. Guernsey Mind, Safer, MUG and Guernsey Society for Cancer Relief were Resolution IT’s chosen charities for 2022.
A portion of the £6000 was raised through voluntary contributions from Resolution IT staff, who opted to donate a percentage of their monthly wages throughout 2022. Another sum was donated in lieu of client Christmas gifts, with the company deciding to donate money to local causes instead.
Safer Head of Service, Naomi Wood, said:
“Safer is very grateful to the staff at Resolution for choosing us as one of their chosen charities to support in 2022. Their generous donation has been allocated to pay for various equipment which assists in keeping our clients safe”
M Chasey of MUG, said:
“Thank you to the great team at Resolution IT. MUG really does appreciate the support of all your staff. While writing, I would as usual urge staff who think things have changed in their bodies to get advice urgently and not leave matters that could be sorted if the right medical help had been taken early on.”
Peter Atkinson, Chair of The Guernsey Society for Cancer Relief, said:
“It is so kind of you and all the staff at Resolution IT. We shall use this generous donation to help cancer patients and their families at a time when financial hardship often causes worry and anxiety which adds to the problems faced by the patient and the family. We help between 15 and 25 individuals and families every month. It is a much-needed service.”
Olly Duquemin, CEO of Resolution IT, said:
“We are delighted to be able to support local charities through the generous donations of staff and company contributions. We will continue to do our best to provide support to local charities each year, both in Guernsey and Jersey.”
Resolution IT’s Community Committee meet regularly to discuss projects and initiatives that the company and staff can get involved in, including conservation projects like the Fort Le Marchant restoration project with Guernsey Conservation Volunteers, a team volunteering session at the GSPCA, a free IT health check for Safer and an annual bake sale for Bright Tights. The company looks forward to another year of supporting Channel Islands charities.
