The Channel Islands Co-op receives a nomination in the Jersey Style Awards 2019

The Society is excited to announce that it has received a nomination ahead of this year’s annual Jersey Style Awards.
Known as one of Jersey’s most glamorous and exclusive events, we have been recognised in a brand new category for this year’s event called ‘Corporate Philanthropy’. The award seeks to highlight the positive contribution that local firms and businesses have given back to our island.

The Society has been nominated for its contribution to the community in a number of ways including our:
 Helping Hands and Eco Fund
 Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme and Quiet Hour
 Work with charities throughout the year
 Meet your neighbour initiative
• Be a Good Egg Easter campaign
 Jersey Royal Potato Growing Competition sponsorship
 Variety Young Star of the Year sponsorship

Our Chief Executive Officer, Colin Macleod said: “All of us at the Co-op are extremely proud to be in a category which recognises our work in our local community such as our ‘Meet your Neighbour’, ‘Be a Good Egg’ and ‘Hidden Disability’ Schemes to name but a few. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our colleagues who continually live out our values every day. It is a privilege to be nominated in this category at such a prestigious ceremony.”

The winner of the Corporate Philanthropy category is decided by a public vote which takes place via an online poll and opens 17 May 2019 and closes 7 June.

Winners will be announced at this year's ceremony taking place on 11 July at the Royal Jersey Showground.
