Jacksons CI, incorporating Motor Mall fundraising partnership
17th August, 2022
In June 2022, the Jacksons Group announced a new fundraising partnership with Les Bourgs Hospice where a donation is made for every vehicle sold.
Their press statement reads;
"Jacksons and Motor Mall offer both new and used vehicles for sale as well as service, parts and repairs and their commitment to offer the highest levels of product and service and passion for what they do makes this partnership especially significant.
Every vehicle sold will result in a donation being made by Jacksons Group which is expected to exceed £50,000 per annum. There is a further opportunity for each donation to be value matched by the customer and this will create a significant and sustainable contribution, all of which goes directly towards the provision of specialist support for those with life limiting illnesses in the local community.
General Manager of Jacksons Channel Islands, Andrew Searle, explained why supporting Les Bourgs Hospice is so important, “The work that Les Bourgs Hospice do is incredible. I had never fully understood just how much funding was required, year on year, to maintain the astonishing levels of care they provide, in often the most challenging circumstances for local families. The support they provide and the dedication of the amazing team, is truly exceptional and deeply humbling.
Rather than a one-off donation, we wanted to do something that was sustainable, to help in their annual challenge to raise the significant funds to maintain their essential service. So, we have committed to a donation from every car we sell at Jacksons and Motor Mall from July 2022 onwards.
We will also be inviting our wonderful customers to match our donation and will be promoting the work of the Les Bourgs Hospice in various other ways.
As an organisation that only works in island communities, we fully appreciate the importance of supporting, and investing in, our local community, and it is obvious just how important an organisation like Les Bourgs is to our island home and its people."
Jo Boyd, MBE Hospice Director said, “As an independent charity who delivers 24 hours specialist care, 365 days a year we are always facing the challenge of raising funds. It was therefore a pleasant surprise when Jacksons Group approached us with this new initiative which we will know will have such a positive impact for us, our patients, and their loved ones. Along with the monetary support, we also recognise the peripheral benefit of having the opportunity to raise awareness to a wider
community about the service that we provide. “Les Bourgs Hospice is incredibly grateful to be chosen as Jacksons Group’s charity partner. We have been extremely impressed with the commitment and passion that they have shown to making the partnership a success and we very much look forward to working with them.”
