Make a donation to Mind Jersey or Guernsey Mind with every mile you drive
The Rubis Card point scheme allows customers to save money and collect points as they fuel up. These points can be redeemed and used at a selection of outlets or donated to one of Rubis’ chosen charities.
Islanders can now make a donation to Mind Jersey or Guernsey Mind using points from their Rubis Card, as the two charities become Rubis’ newest redemption partners.
‘We are proud of our long heritage in the Channel Islands and remain committed to supporting our local communities and encouraging community spirit,’ commented Nick Crolla, Head of Sales & Marketing at Rubis. ‘We must remember these are organisations islanders depend on. We recognise the incredible work of Mind Jersey and Guernsey Mind, even as COVID-19 has affected their plans, events, and fundraising efforts, and are pleased we can provide a way for islanders to give back to the community, through every mile they drive.’
Mind Jersey and Guernsey Mind are the second charities to join as redemption partners in each island.
Jo Cottell, General Manager, Guernsey Mind said, ‘Prioritising mental health has never been more critical. The peak of the pandemic may have passed but its side effects to our mental wellbeing are ongoing. This support from Rubis will help us as we continue to support islanders and encourage a greater understanding of mental health issues within our community.’
Hugh Forrester, Opeerations Manager from Mind Jersey added, ‘All charities have been struggling with fundraising this year as we lost income due to the coronavirus pandemic. But the crisis has been a leveller across the sector, as some have been hit harder than others. We are incredibly grateful to Rubis for the opportunity to become a redemption partner as it allows those who might not otherwise be able to donate, to do so.’
Islanders wanting to donate their Rubis points to Mind Jersey or Guernsey Mind, can do so by calling or visiting Rubis. And islanders can apply for a Rubis Card through the website: www.rubis-ci.co.uk/rubis-card
