Welcome to the Jersey Branch page. We were formed in 1979 and we've been raising money to beat blood cancer ever since.
We hold lots of events in our local area, and we're always looking for new people to join our group, whether you'd like to get involved on a regular basis or just help out whenever you can. If you'd like to join us, we'd love to hear from you, so please get in touch!
Latest updates from the Branch
We held our annual kid's triathlon on 10 June 2017 in glorious sunshine. This event was very kindly sponsored by Vistra Jersey of the Vistra Group and they also provided much needed help on the day. We run this triathlon with the help of training provider 3D Performance and David Holmes, our local triathlon specialist!
This year we had 450 children take part. Despite the record attendance, the day ran smoothly! The spectators made full use of the other amusements, bouncy castles, face painting, candy floss, cake stall etc., and there was plenty of room for a picnic as well.
The children asked to be sponsored and together we raised almost £10,000. We had a prize giving for the child who had raised the most and also for the school with the biggest percentage of pupils taking part. There were also other prizes given having pulled out the kid's running numbers at random.
The children have a great time and love doing the triathlon. It’s not a race, there is no timing, and it’s the achievement that counts. We also feel it’s a good way to promote their health and sporting skills. They all receive a medal, a T shirt, a goodie bag and a very much needed bottle of water on the finish line!
Now we're looking forward to the next one and hopefully we will attract even more kids to take part. The 2018 kid's triathlon will be held on 9 June.
Gala Opera Dinner
We had a wonderful evening of light opera and songs from musicals at our annual Gala Opera Dinner which was held in the Hotel De France on 10 November 2017.
It was a champagne reception followed by a lovey three course dinner interspersed with arias after the first course and various songs after the main course. The Diva Opera Company have performed for us many times and never fail to give beautiful performances in a very casual way, walking around the tables quite often as they sang.
There was a magnificent turnout of over 140 people who all thoroughly enjoyed the event and who were very generous to the raffle which was held at the end of the evening.
All in all a very successful evening raising approximately £7,000 for our charity.
We hope to hold an Opera Evening in 2018 as of yet no date has been finalised.
