100 Women Who Care raised more than £7,000 for local charities

Local community crowdfunding charity, 100 Women Who Care Guernsey, raised £5,530 for three local charities at its fifth fundraising event. As the event sponsor, Belasko donated an additional £1,500 to the charities, to bring the total amount raised to £7,030.  

The event took place on Thursday 15th June and was attended by more than 50 local women in business and the third sector. The organising committee choose charities who have a smaller profile in the island. This event hosted Business Beats Cancer who received £500, Guernsey Community Savings who received £1,530, and Le Vois PTFA who received £3,500. 

At the event, each participant is asked to donate £100 into a pool, and following the charity’s presentations, individuals choose where their contribution is made. Belasko’s sponsorship allows the total amount of the participants’ donations to be shared between the charities, without deduction for expenses, in proportion to their selected charities on the evening. Belasko also donated an additional £500 to each charity.  

Patricia White, Director of 100 Women Who Care Guernsey, said: ‘We are so pleased to have hosted another successful event in support of three fantastic local charities. Being able to bring together a group of women to raise money for valuable local initiatives makes it all worthwhile, and we can’t wait to see how everyone’s generosity will be used in the local community.’ 

Greg McKenzie, Managing Director of Belasko in Guernsey, said: ‘We are thrilled to have sponsored this event and helped to support the three local charities who benefited from the donations. The opportunity for a supportive space for women in Guernsey to network can’t be understated and we’re proud to have played a small part in helping the initiative.’  

Belasko sponsors 100 Women Who Care’s fifth local event

Community crowdfunding organisation ‘100 Women Who Care’ is returning with its fifth event in Guernsey, thanks to sponsorship from Belasko, on Thursday 15 June at Les Cotils.

The 100 Women Who Care organisation was founded in the US in 2006 and was launched in Guernsey in 2021, modelled from this international framework. The event welcomes 100 women to a unique networking evening and to hear presentations from three local charities.

Each participant is asked to donate £100 into a pool, and following the charity’s presentations, participants choose where their contribution is made. Belasko’s sponsorship allows the total amount of the participants’ donations to be shared between the charities, without deduction for expenses, in proportion to their selected charities on the evening.

Presenting charities are chosen by the organising committee with the specification that they must be Guernsey registered charities, but local charities with a smaller profile are favoured.

Patricia White, Director of 100 Women Who Care Guernsey, said: ‘We are so pleased to return with our fifth local event and provide another opportunity to support local charities. Our aim is to encourage the kindness and giving spirit of women in our community, as well as provide a unique networking space to share professional knowledge and provide support.

‘We hope to welcome another sell-out event allowing a full pot of £10,000 to be donated to three local charities. We want to thank Belasko for supporting our next event, helping our group to give back and ensuring the full donation amount is available to charities.’

Each charity will receive a minimum donation of £500 by participating in the event.

Greg McKenzie, Managing Director of Belasko in Guernsey, said: ‘Belasko is thrilled to support such a valuable event. 100 Women Who Care provides an inclusive networking space and an opportunity to make a massive impact on local charities. We are proud to get involved in this fantastic initiative.’
