In addition to Milly’s Foundation in Alderney on the 13th November, the local Freemasons donated £50,000 to charities in the Bailiwick.
All money raised is exclusively from Freemasons.
Ernie’s Angels was founded in Guernsey in December 2017 in memory of Ernie, a young boy, who died in September of that year. Ernie had received much support from local people during a long illness and eventual terminal diagnosis and a group of his family and friends thought that they could harness that support in order to continue to help local children.
It became apparent through their experiences with Ernie, that there was no hospice care for children in the Bailiwick. They felt that the best way to support these families was to be able to offer assistance in many areas including financial assistance Ernie’s Angels know that they cannot lessen the pain, but they can support families and show them that their community cares.
Guernsey Alzheimer’s Association
No one is immune from coming into contact with this dreadful illness. I am sure that here today there are a number of who know a family member, friend or acquaintance who is either dealing with dementia or is a carer for someone with dementia.
The Association holds regular social activities to help support carers and those they care for.
They offer practical advice, emotional support, companionship and understanding and the social activities help carers connect with other carers where they can share similar experiences.
They offer assistance with a very important respite service.
Free access to a Library at the Delancey Centre.
Guernsey Sea Cadets
The aim of the Sea Cadets is to give young people an experience that will help them grow into the person they want to be in a safe and friendly environment.
Through various activities and adventures, young people learn teamwork, respect, loyalty, self-confidence, self-discipline, honesty and integrity, and how to be the best version of themselves.
They offer a range of different activities from rowing, sailing, and powerboating – to adventure training and the opportunity to participate in national and international sea cadet activities.
Cardiac Action Group
Their aim is to help raise awareness of heart disease in the Bailiwick, to reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease, in promoting cardiac patient care, facilitating the development of new cardiac services and supporting existing services. This includes the provision of public AED defibrillator units. Would like to increase. CAG also provides vital education and offers free training courses on how to use these defibrillator units for maximum effectiveness.
