50 employees from Barclays in Jersey will be volunteering at this year’s Barclays Jersey Boat Show.
The volunteers will be offering directions and advice on what there is to see and do at the Boat Show along with helping to raise money for the charities by running the Barclays ‘Hook a Duck’ game featuring the famous Barclays Boat Show duck.
Yas Vockins, Head of Banking Operations at Barclays in Jersey and volunteer coordinator is looking forward to volunteering at another action packed show.
“The Boat Show is such a fun event as there is a great family friendly atmosphere and there is so much for visitors to see and do so we’re always inundated with requests from employees to volunteer each year.”
Barclays matches all donations raised by their volunteers during the show and this year the money raised will be split equally between The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and Holidays for Heroes Jersey.
“Our employees do such a fantastic job volunteering at the Boat Show every year and we really wanted to highlight their involvement, said Neil McCluskey, Head of Offshore and Local Markets for Barclays in Jersey.
“I hope the visitors to the show take the opportunity to have a chat with our volunteers to find out more about what the show has to offer.”
The 2014 Barclays Jersey Boat Show will take place in and around St Helier Marina over the May Bank Holiday of Saturday 3 until Monday 5 May.
