Saffery Rotary Walk

Corporate Social Responsibility

Saffery Trust Guernsey have been the main sponsor for the round-island walk for 8 years. By covering all the operational costs, we ensure that every penny raised by walkers goes directly to the charities. We also take part in the organisation, public relations and volunteer work needed to help make the annual event a success.

One of Guernsey’s biggest fundraising events, over 800 walkers take on a 39-mile walk around the island’s beautiful coastline.

During our time as lead sponsor, more than £500,000 has been raised for worthwhile local causes to do good in the community.

The 2024 walk will be going ahead on Saturday 8th of June, so get your walking shoes ready, and sign up today via the link below to take part in this iconic Guernsey event.

Rotary Shoe Box Appeal

In 2022, our Guernsey team contributed to the annual Shoe Box Appeal, which provides gifts, toiletries, and stationery to under privileged children. As well as 30 full boxes donated by our team, we also provided financial sponsorship to the appeal to cover shipping costs and to “top up” other shoeboxes.

Our boxes joined over 4,000 others shipped to children across Europe, including Ukrainian refugees.


Male Uprising Guernsey (MUG) Beard Up!

Our Guernsey office have been hugely successful in fundraising efforts for the annual MUG Beard Up! campaign, which invites men to grow their facial hair through November raising funds an awareness of men’s cancers and health locally.

In 2022 we raised over £3,000 in sponsorship and were awarded “Corporate fundraiser of the Year” for the second time by MUG.

To further support MUG’s efforts, we invited a guest speaker to the office to help destigmatizing men’s health problems and highlight the importance of men being open about their health.

Mache de l’espoir (Walk of Hope)

Our Geneva team are always taking opportunities to be active, and support good causes while they are at it.

In 2022, the team entered the Marche de l’espoir, pledging to walk 1,000km in a month. Thanks to the exceptional efforts of the team, we exceeded expectations by completing 2,000km! Sponsorship raised by the event was donated to support the educational development of children in Jharkhand, India.

Quarterly office fundraiser

Our Geneva team host a quarterly social event where staff are encouraged to make donations towards themed events. All donations collected through the year are donated to local causes. Most recently, a board game night held by the team raised funds for the Arabelle Shelter, the only organisation in Geneva to provide both shelter and day-care facilities to vulnerable women and children.

Christmas gift collection

In Geneva, we partner with CARITAS in donating Christmas gifts to disadvantaged children. Our team members are given gift tags detailing the gender and approximate age of a child to buy gifts for. The gifts are then distributed by the charity to vulnerable individuals and families across Switzerland.
