Attendees at this year’s Jersey Funds Association Annual Dinner have helped raise a bumper amount to support Kezia’s Fund, a fund managed by the Jersey Community Foundation.
More than 400 people from across the industry attended this year’s Dinner, held at the Trinity Showground on 14th July, who between them helped to raise £12,500 towards Kezia’s Fund, thanks to a raffle held during the evening.
Kezia’s Fund aims to support mental health among children and young people aged 5 to 25 and their families in Jersey. It provides grants and support to organisations that work to improve children and young people’s mental wellbeing.
Anna Terry, CEO of the Jersey Community Foundation said: “This funding will continue the legacy of Kezia’s Fund, ensuring that the substantial funds raised are used to address the prevalent issue of child and young people’s mental health in Jersey. We are extremely grateful to the Jersey Funds Association for supporting Kezia’s Fund at their dinner this year and we would like to thank everyone who generously donated on the evening”.
Michael Johnson, JFA Chair, commented: “This year’s dinner provided us with an opportunity to consider our role in the local community and with that in mind I’m really pleased that, thanks to the generosity of those who came along to our Dinner this year, we managed to raise such a good sum to support the work undertaken through Kezia’s Fund.”
