2013 Jersey Swimarathon

Trek Kerala in aid of the Jersey Cheshire Home
The Jersey Cheshire Home is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and aims to raise £300,000.
The Jersey Cheshire Home provides care to individuals who are physically disabled and unable to live in their own homes as well as day care treatments such as physiotherapy and hydrotherapy. The Home relies heavily on donations and every penny raised goes on creating a brighter future for both residents and visitors.
One of the many fundraising activities planned in this 30th anniversary year is Trek Kerala; a gruelling five day trek in the Kerala region on the south west coast of India. Le Masurier’s Managing Director, Brian McCarthy is participating in the trek and aims to raise as much as possible to support the Home.
Brian will be meeting all travel and accommodation costs personally, but he would be extremely grateful if individuals or companies would kindly consider sponsoring him or making a donation to help this extremely worthy cause. If you can help in any way, please send your contribution to Le Masurier but with cheques made payable to Jersey Cheshire Home.
In taking on this commitment Brian faces both personal and physical challenges. However, these pale into insignificance when compared to those individuals who are physically disabled and, without the support of the Home, are unable to enjoy the same quality of life. Together with your support, we can help the Jersey Cheshire Home reach its aim of raising £300,000 and equally as important, its profile within the island.
Le Masurier once again entered a team in the 2012 Jersey Swimarathon.
Through our sponsorship and after completing 58 laps the team managed to raise over £1,000.
447 teams took part in the five day event with around 4,000 swimmers and raised in excess of £141,000. The money raised this year will directly benefit the Island’s young people with 23 charitable groups each receiving at least £2,500.
We wish to thank all those that kindly sponsored us in our efforts.
Le Masurier entered a team in the Jersey Swimarathon for the very first time in March 2011, which was the 40th consecutive event since its start in 1972 and to date the Swimarathon has raised almost three million pounds for charity, most of which has been spent in the Island.
Through our sponsorship and after completing 52 laps the team managed to raise over £700 for the chosen local charities. Moneys from the Swimarathon and other fund-raisers have been used for building an indoor swimming pool for the handicapped, a day care centre for children, a day car centre for the elderly, establishing a hospital radio service and supporting many other local and international charities including major donations to Channel Islands Air Search which was founded by the Lions Club of Guernsey.
Our thanks goes out to all those who kindly sponsored the team.
Clarke family donate Devil’s Hole headland to the National Trust
Devil’s Hole re-opened to the public in May 2010 after 18 months of work to make-over the site. The project was made possible due to the donation of the Creux du Vis headland to the National Trust by the Clarke Family. The donation marked the start of the trust’s Coastline Campaign to safeguard the island’s coastline for future generations. The bequest was made in memory of former St Helier Constable Fred Clarke. Fred’s brothers John Clarke and Tony Clarke, together with Fred’s youngest daughter Emma were present at the unveiling of the refurbished site and officially opened it to the public.
Le Masurier step in to provide funding for Jersey Trees for Life
Local charity Jersey Trees For Life was given a vital boost in funds by Le Masurier in January. The charity had suffered from a reduction in funding from the States of Jersey Planning and Environment Department Countryside Renewal Scheme. Le Masurier stepped in to provide the necessary funding for the planting of hedgerow whips in St Clement and helped the charity to reach their 7,000 tree target.
