Beating blood cancer in your back yard: find out how you can support us in your area.

Jersey Branch

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 update 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.
