Close Finance Raises £3403.98 For JSPCA's Save Our Shelter Campaign
Close Finance CI are proud to share that, through the tireless efforts of their dedicated team members, £1,701.99 was collected on behalf of the JSPCA’s Save Our Shelter campaign. At the end of 2018, Rachel Scott Renouf and Elaine Miller along with other members of the Jersey team, raised funds by creating hand painted pebbles which were available for a minimum £5 donation from the office on Conway Street up until the New Year.
Rachel came up with the idea after joining the local Facebook group Jersey Painted Rocks, which was set up last year by Mariana Gouveia Silva to share hidden messages and colourful paintings around Jersey.
The incredible sum of £1701.99 was matched by Close Brothers Motor Finance, bringing the grand total raised to £3403.98. Marie Booth and Rachel Scott-Renouf were delighted to hand over the cheque to Barbara Keywood of the JSPCA. The JSPCA announced their Save our Shelter campaign in early October 2018 stating, “Without the support of our local community we wouldn’t be able to continue our vital work for the animals of Jersey.”
