Staff from Deutsche Bank in Jersey and Guernsey have completed their 35 hour community challenge!

Jersey Mencap's outside garden at the Le Geyt Centre has been completely transformed - what was a grassy wasteland is now an impressive vegetable patch complete with wheelchair access.... Just round the corner a sensory garden has been created and packed with herbs, plants and flowers that the service users can enjoy.

In Guernsey, the Ron Short Centre's had a dramatic makeover on an industrial scale. The site's benefited from a thorough paint inside and out and the staff worked tirelessly to actually achieve more than what was originally planned.

The runner-up projects for the initiative were, in Jersey, Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, the Girls’ Brigade and St Ouen’s Youth Club. In Guernsey they were the North Youth Centre, Guernsey Cheshire Home and the Guernsey Youth Theatre. They were all presented with a cheque for £250, representing the profits from the phone votes together with a donation from Deutsche Bank.

Deutsche Bank is celebrating its 35th anniversary of being in the Channel Islands and the Community Challenge forms a part of the Bank’s celebrations.
