JTC MAKES £100K DONATION TO CHARITIES TO SUPPORT GLOBAL COVID-19 RELIEF EFFORTS

24th Apr 2020

JTC has made a Group-wide donation of £100,000 to support charities in their international efforts to combat the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The donation will be split between three charities which were selected by employees from across JTC’s global network of offices. The charities to benefit are:

  • The World Health Organisation – “WHO” will receive £54,000, through its Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund. The WHO is leading and coordinating the global effort, supporting countries to prevent, detect, and respond to the pandemic.
  • Medecins Sans Frontieres – “MSF” will receive £30,000. MSF is opening new projects in response to COVID-19 and adapting its existing ones to help cope with cases of Covid-19 around the world.
  • Comic Relief will receive £16,000. Comic Relief is supporting the organisations that it funds, both in the UK and around the world, as they adapt and respond to the challenges associated with Covid-19.

Nigel Le Quesne, Chief Executive Officer of JTC, said:

“As we are all acutely aware, the ongoing effects of Covid-19 continue to be felt in every corner of society around the world and it is absolutely right that we make our own contribution to the international charities which have specific programmes concentrating on the response to the pandemic. As a global business, we want to offer our financial support to a number of international charities that will make a significant impact.

“In keeping with our shared ownership culture, it was important to engage everyone across our business so they had a say in where our donations should be made. It was also heartening to receive a number of direct personal donations in support of our #STRONGERTOGETHER focus.

“I’m enormously proud of the spirit of our people, who clearly feel so passionately about these charities.”
