Blue Islands is offering travel support for Channel Island charities, groups and individuals who may apply for funding for travel off island.
Rob Veron, CEO Blue Islands said, “This initiative was created to support our home island community. Whether it’s sport, art, enrichment or development, we wish to play our part in enabling Islanders to pursue their individual and shared ambitions – we’re welcoming applications from charities, groups and individuals where this support will better enable such opportunities to be enjoyed.”
Blue Islands anticipates a great level of interest in this latest round of funding and looks forward to supporting as many worthy beneficiaries as possible.
Rob added, “In previous years we’ve assisted Islanders including Guernsey surfer Tom Hook, Jersey Jets netball star Lily Jones, Team GB Archer Lucy O’Sullivan as well as the Youth Commission for Guernsey & Alderney. We’re looking forward to supporting many more with their travel over the coming year and sharing in their stories.”
Lucy O’Sullivan, Team GB Archer said, “Blue Islands’ support enabled me to compete in the 2019 Archery National Tour and progress through the competition that year, it’s a wonderful initiative that enables Islanders to pursue opportunities that may not be possible without the support of off-island travel.”
The closing date for this round of applications is Wednesday 31 August 2022.
