A few years ago the Jersey office made the decision to stop buying each other secret Santa presents and instead donate the money to local charities.
This initiative is now an annual event and the baton of collecting donations has been passed to our Discovery Trainees to help them get to know everyone in the office and of course raise money for a worthy cause.
This year Carter, Florence, Ryan and Felicity worked together to find a charity. Jersey Variety needed to raise £2,000 to purchase two much needed specialist profiling beds and give two young children with severe mental and physical impairments more comfort and help to support their physical therapy.
The secret Santa collection raised nearly £2,000 but our Trainees wanted to do more so they could have new bedding too. One of the best ways to raise money at IQ-EQ is a tried and tested bake sale, so our Trainees brought in a delicious treats for a straight month and smashed their target with an impressive total of £2,550.
