Helping Hand Appeal


I have set up the HELPING HAND APPEAL to provide interim support for those members of the community who may struggle in the coming weeks and months to make ends meet.

Although financial resources have been made available by the States of Guernsey to support our community through these difficult times, we do need to recognise that there may be circumstances when we need to step in and provide short term support, to ensure everybody has the wherewith al to sustain themselves on a daily basis. The support will be made available in the form of vouchers which will be redeemable at our food shops, the pharmacy and Alderney Electricity Limited.

If you require a Helping Hand please contact Gill Trousdale in the President's office on 820001 (Monday to Friday 9am to 12.30pm) or email

All donations, gratefully received, should be made to the following bank account which will hold the funds on behalf of the Appeal:
