Between now and the end of June I am asking local people to recommend to us local businesses that they know and trust and I will make a £1 donation to Jersey Hospice for each recommendation received. My target is to raise £200 so I need your help by making a recommendation. Please note that once I have 200 recommendations any additional, while much appreciated, will not result in additional donation to Jersey Hospice.
So please let me know about any local business that you have used recently and which impressed you, we only work with real local businesses so recommendations in respect of UK chains (WH Smith, M&S, BSH, Costa etc) will not count. Recommendations need to be in respect of local commercial businesses so recommendations in respect of Charities, Community Groups. Sports Associations etc, while welcome, will also not count.
Suggestions for recommendations include:
• Your hairdresser/beautician
• Your favourite restaurant/pub
• Great local tradesmen (builders, gardeners, painters etc)
• Your favourite locally owned shops
• Your garage
• Your gym/fitness instructor
• Any other great local business
Recommend a business here
As soon as I have 50 recommendations I will pay Hospice £50 and will pay a further £50 once I reach the 100, 150 & 200 recommendation stages.
You can recommend as many businesses as you like but each business can only be recommended once by each individual. Multiple recommendations for the same business by different people are welcome. Please add sufficient detail to your recommendation to show why the business has won your support.
When I receive a recommendation I call the business to let them know they have been recommended and to suggest that we meet so that I can tell the business about our services and how we help promote them to local people.
For each business that decides to join us as a result of one of the recommendations we have received I will pay an extra £20 to Hospice. I would expect that on 200 recommendations I would obtain at least 20 new excellent local businesses to work with, if that was the case then I would be please to donate £400 to Hospice in addition to the £200 in respect of the recommendations. Naturally if more businesses join us then I will be in a position to increase my donation.
My target is to donate at least £600 to Jersey Hospice from a combination of Recommendations and new businesses joining us.
In addition I am also keen to increase our profile on Facebook so between now and the end of June I will donate 50p for each new ‘like’ that I receive on our Facebook, my target here is 200 likes so if I reach this target I will be able to donate a further £100 to Jersey Hospice. Any additional ‘likes’ would be much appreciated but will not result in additional payments to Jersey Hospice.

There is no doubt that the Jersey Hospice does great work and as they totally rely on donations to continue and I hope that as many people as possible will take to time to recommend a great local business and/or like our Facebook page and help boost my donation to Jersey Hospice Care.
