BOW were the first to sign up to this year’s Final Hour Appeal!

Each year the Guernsey Cheshire Home needs to raise £600,000 to keep its doors open and the Final Hour appeal is one of its major fundraising events.

This year the Final Hour Appeal is in partnership with Focus HR Solutions.

The idea is simple – we encourage everyone to give the Final Hour of their March salary and, to make it simpler, we encourage employers to make it possible through their payroll. As HR and Payroll specialists, this is a scheme close to our hearts.

Becky Machon, Director of Focus, said ‘Focus are proud to be sponsoring this event in order to help raise funds for the Cheshire Home. Only a small donation from everybody will go such a long way to helping those who need it most and Focus is delighted to offer our support for this worthy cause. We will be encouraging and enabling our team and our clients to get involved.”

Home manager Nic Mountain explains Final Hour is a small gesture that could have a huge impact: ‘Without the home, the options for a fulfilling life for those living with disability would be very limited,’ he said. ‘The Final Hour is one of those things where a small individual act replicated many times has an enormous collective impact. Fundraising is always a challenge, but the last few years have been particularly testing with most fundraisers cancelled, I thank people in advance for their kindness.’

How can you get involved?

If you are an employer, you can arrange a payroll payment directly to the Home’s account by contacting Karen at the Home on or 01481 720578.

You can of course donate more if you wish and some employers may wish to enhance or match the contribution made by their employees.
