Charity of the year for financial firm
An Island charity that helps people to live independently has been boosted to the tune of £5,000.
It takes the total donated by corporate service provider SMP Partners during 2018 to £10,000.
Isle of Man Live At Home, the firm’s Charity of the Year, received the proceeds from a variety of events organised by staff including casual clothes days, bake sales, parish walk sponsorship and bucket collections from theatre shows.
Formed in 1998, Live At Home campaigns to end loneliness within the older sections of the Island’s population.
Around 600 members and a network of 312 volunteers are involved in the organisation, in communities throughout the Island.
They have access to a range of services, including one-to-one befriending, regular social groups, lunch clubs, film clubs, and shopping clubs, all with transport provided.
