Making A Difference (MAD) Update in Guernsey for 2016

What is MAD? 

MAD is the in-house charitable face of Collas Crill in Guernsey. It offers employees the chance to create, organise, assist with and participate in charitable activities throughout the year aimed at helping charities and initiatives based or active in the Bailiwick.

In 2016 staff voted for the Guernsey Alzheimer's Association to benefit from MAD's fundraising efforts. It is a small local charity with an extremely friendly and hard working committee that provide invaluable support to those living with, or are close to someone who has been diagnosed with, alzheimer's disease. In addition, the MAD Committee decided that the monthly 'mufti' bucket shake collection should be reserved for charities nominated by staff.

Throughout the year, the MAD Committee members wracked their brains and rolled up their sleeves to deliver a wide variety of events for staff to enjoy while making a worthwhile contribution to charity.

There is no doubt that it would not have been another successful year without the participation and enthusiasm of all staff at Collas Crill, Guernsey. We cannot thank them enough for their support!
