Zurich International raises funds for Manx charities

Staff to vote on who will be this year's beneficiaries

Manx charities will soon benefit from a local business's annual campaign to support the community.

Every year, Zurich International employees vote for charities and support groups on the Island, putting them forward for the company's charity grant awards scheme.

The three organisations that get the most votes receive the largest donations and all money raised by employees is doubled by the Z Zurich Foundation.

Last year, 40 Manx charities benefited from the scheme, the top three of which were; Alzheimer's Society IoM which received £12,500; Rebecca House Children's Hospice (£7,500); and Live at Home received £5,000.

Staff will vote later in the year to decide which charities will receive this year's funding.
