Marsh Guernsey celebrates 40 years with charity pledge

Marsh in Guernsey is celebrating 40 years of captive management operations on the Island by launching ‘Guernsey 40:40’, with employees taking part in 40 charitable events.

‘Guernsey 40:40’ will help raise money for local charities and community groups during 2014.

Marsh employs 16 people in their captive management team in St Peter Port, where the company has operated since 1974.

Commenting on the charity initiative, David Riley, head of office, said: “The 40:40 programme is an excellent way of celebrating our 40th anniversary, while giving something back to the communities in which we live and work.

“Over the course of the year, our colleagues will put forward their ideas and undertake a number of challenges, giving their time to support good causes and raise funds.”

Riley raised funds by undertaking the Sport Relief Mile challenge on 22nd March and the office raised funds for the Rotary Club of Guernsey Purple Pinkie Day.

Other planned activities include colleagues taking part in organised events such as The Race for Life, Rock to Rocque Bike Ride, World Aid Walk and Saffrey Champness Rotary Walk.
