Close Finance Home Makeover

Close Finance is calling upon Islanders to nominate a local worthy cause which could benefit from a property makeover worth an incredible £5,000.

In order to make a real difference to Jersey residents, the locally based finance house is looking for a charity, club, association or even an extremely deserving individual that needs a helping hand. Close Finance has teamed up with a range of local home improvement experts and is offering the opportunity to win a life-changing makeover.

As a demonstration of its commitment to helping islanders, Close Finance is requesting nominations of a deserving cause; someone who desperately needs better wheelchair access, or improved facilities in the kitchen or bathroom perhaps? Local families may long for an extra room so that their children ,parents or carers can have some privacy? Or are you aware of a club or association that has an outside space that is in desperate need of a tidy up?

Commenting on the initiative Adam Dawson, Managing Director of Close Finance said “We all want a comfortable, functioning living space which fits our individual needs and lifestyles, but often the cost of new appliances, fittings and furnishings can prevent us from creating our dream property or ideal environment. For local charities and good causes that are dependent on donations and fundraising efforts, the decision on how to design a room is based largely on what is essential rather than what they’d really wish for in an ideal world. At Close Finance we’d like to change that and we’re looking for one deserving Jersey resident, organisation or charity for whom we can make the dream of a room makeover a reality.”

Those who’d like to nominate a friend, colleague, family member or charity/club to win this great prize are invited to enter the competition by writing in no more than 250 words why you feel you or your nominated person or organisation deserves the home makeover.

Entries should be posted to CLOSE FINANCE MAKEOVER COMPETITION, Close Finance, PO Box 483, Conway House, Conway Street, St. Helier, Jersey, JE4 5SR or emailed to

The closing date for nominations is 5pm on Wednesday14th November 2012 and the winner will be selected by a panel of judges and announced at a launch event on Thursday 29th November 2012.
