The Guernsey Harbour Carnival is an annual fun-filled community event with a mixture of water and land-based activities that help to raise money for local charitable organisations. More than £162,500* has been raised since RBC Wealth Management’s involvement with the carnival began in 2008.
This year’s main beneficiary, The HUB, provides invaluable support to Guernsey’s youth. Fifty percent of the money raised at this year’s event has been contributed to the charity’s Sunflower Project, providing support to young people who are experiencing loss or serious illness of a loved one. The remaining funds are donated to a diverse range of local causes nominated by our community partner, the Guernsey Round Table. Past beneficiaries include Guernsey Sailing Trust, Guernsey Sports Commission, Guernsey Sea Cadets, Wigwam Support Group, Guernsey Scouts and the Flying Christine.
RBC Wealth Management’s long-term partnership with the Guernsey Round Table is a demonstration of our commitment to helping communities prosper. In addition to supporting the delivery of the event, RBC staff volunteer their time and are active participants in the day’s fun-filled events.
