ILS NAME US THEIR CHARITY OF THE YEAR.
ILS Fiduciaries (Isle of Man) Limited has chosen Sailing for the Disabled as its charity of the year. The company, headquartered in Douglas, has donated £1,000 to the Manx registered charity, which provides opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in sailing on equal terms with their able bodied friends in a harmonious and safe environment. Sailing for the Disabled was nominated by ILS Isle of Man staff and the money donated was raised through dress down days. To further support the charity the Company is also a silver sponsor.
Chief Executive Officer of The ILS Group Chris Eaton says “We are delighted to have chosen Sailing for the Disabled as our charity of the year and in turn show our support and raise awareness for a great cause"
