Two new sponsors join community awards

The 2014 Community Awards has welcomed two new sponsors.

RBC Wealth Management and KPMG Channel Islands Limited have both agreed to support the event for the next three years, alongside the Community Awards’ other existing sponsors.

RBC Wealth Management, who won the award for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) at last year’s event, have taken on the sponsorship of this award, while KPMG Channel Islands Limited has taken on sponsorship of the award for Outstanding Individual Achievement.

Dave Chilton, Chief Executive, Guernsey Community Foundation said:

‘We are pleased to welcome these two new sponsors to the Community Awards team. It is entirely fitting that RBC Wealth Management should have stepped in for the CSR category having won that award themselves in 2013. Similarly, KPMG have been keen supporters of the Community Awards, attending the event in previous years, so we are delighted that they have decided to join us.’

Andy Creber, from the RBC Wealth Management Guernsey Leadership Team said:

‘We have been a proud member of Guernsey’s thriving financial sector for more than 40 years, a feat that would not have been possible without the support of our staff and a clear understanding of our collective responsibilities within the local community. The Community Awards are an excellent way of highlighting the variety and creativity that goes into charitable activities across the Island, and sponsoring this CSR award is a small gesture to help acknowledge the other Guernsey businesses and groups that work tirelessly to improve the community for the benefit of others.’

The Community Awards are taking place on Thursday 6 November at St James. More information about nominations and how to attend the event will be issued in due course.
