Cancellation of Charities Fete

It is with great regret that we have had to take thedifficult decision to cancel the Charities Fete which was due to be atGovernment House tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon.  The weather forecast iscurrently for heavy rain through much of the day, and some charities andentertainment had already cancelled.  We know that many charities havebeen working hard to prepare for this Fete – the first time that such an eventwas due to be held in the grounds of Government House. 

We are extremelygrateful to His Excellency and Lady Corder for inviting the Association ofGuernsey Charities to host an event for the benefit of a large number of localorganisations, and we know that many charities had been looking forward to the opportunity. We also thank all of the people who devoted significant time to planning andpreparation, and those who offered to provide entertainment andrefreshments.  

Sadly the weather is outside of our control but, hopefully,we might be able to go ahead with something similar in the future.


Government House Charities Fete

On Saturday 29 July the front gardens of Government House will be open to the public for a grand Charities Fete. His Excellency and Lady Corder extended an invitation to the Association of Guernsey Charities to host an event in the grounds which will benefit a wide variety of local organisations.  <<more>>

Giving.gg - making fundraising easy for local charities

Giving.gg is the new online donation facility for members of the Association of Guernsey Charities.  It is an easy way for organisations to collect donations, via the internet, using credit/debit card, PayPal, or internet banking.  Whilst the card companies may deduct a small processing fee, the major benefit to charities is that Giving.gg charges no admin/membership/joining fees.  So more of the donation goes to the good cause.  <<more>>
