Ogier raises £3,000
Ogier's Let's Get Active challenge raises £3,000 for Guernsey Alzheimer's Association
Ogier in Guernsey has raised £3,000 for the Guernsey Alzheimer's Association through a firm-wide challenge that took place over the course of April, called Let's Get Active.
There are 43,200 minutes in April and, in a bid to raise money for a nominated charity in each of its jurisdictions, Ogier challenged its employees to collectively log as many minutes of sport or exercise activity.
Employees rose to the challenge and collectively logged over 132,500 minutes in 30 days – triple the original goal. Following this, Ogier has made a donation of £3,000 to charities in each jurisdiction (a total of £18,000), with the Guernsey Alzheimer's Association selected by teams in Guernsey through an office vote.
Guernsey partner Christopher Jones said: "It is brilliant to see the entire business getting together to complete this challenge and raise much-needed funds for some wonderful charities. In Guernsey, teams came together for activities such as dog walks and cycle tours in a bid to encourage and support one another. And we couldn't be prouder to donate this £3,000 to the Guernsey Alzheimer's Association as a thank you for the help they provide in our island community."
