Nedbank Collaborates with Hospice Shops on First-Ever Shop Takeover!

Staff from Nedbank Private Wealth are gearing up for an exciting initiative that promises to make a positive impact on the Isle of Man community. On the 5, 6 and 7 March 2024, a total of twelve staff members from Nedbank Private Wealth will take over the running of the Hospice Isle of Man shop located on Duke Street – a first for both the Hospice and Nedbank Private Wealth.

The aim of this three-day takeover is to support Hospice Isle of Man in their desire to increase awareness of the invaluable work they do and raise essential funds. These funds will enable the charity to continue providing a full-service care provision to the island’s community.

In a collaborative effort between Nedbank Private Wealth and Hospice Isle of Man, the Nedbank Private Wealth team will step into the shoes of voluntary shop staff. They will provide customer service, engage with shoppers, and encourage more footfall. Additionally, the team will run a raffle across the three days, with two luxury Fortnum & Mason hampers up for grabs.

Earlier this year, Nedbank Private Wealth introduced a new incentive for its colleagues where each employee is allocated one day per year to volunteer at a charity of their choice. This takeover event aligns perfectly with that commitment, allowing the team to actively contribute to the local community.

Andrew Halsall, Head of Private Banking in the Isle of Man, said: “We’re excited to work with Hospice Isle of Man on this opportunity. Our team is passionate about making a difference, and this initiative allows us to do just that. Our aim is to encourage as many people as possible to visit the shop, participate in the raffle, and support Hospice Isle of Man. By doing so, we hope to raise a lot of money for such a valuable local charity.”

John Knight, CEO at Hospice Isle of Man, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Nedbank Private Wealth. This is the first takeover of its kind for Hospice Isle of Man, and we’re looking forward to their team stepping up to make a positive impact on our Isle of Man community. By taking over the Hospice Isle of Man shop on Duke Street for three days, they will not only be providing essential customer service but also helping us to raise crucial funds. These funds enable us to continue our aim of delivering full-service care to our island’s community. We’re grateful to Nedbank Private Wealth for their commitment and support and look forward to working with them to make this a great success.”
