Nursing home benefits from Canopius Bermuda’s Global Community Day
Staff from local company Canopius Bermuda recently teamed up with staff at the Matilda Smith Williams seniors residence to help out with chores and cooking for the elderly.
The company’s Hamilton office closed while all of the employees took part in the Canopius Global Community Day.
Administrator of the Residence Deanna Cumberbatch-Symonds said: “It was a great help to see our staff expand by seven, if only for the day.
“They were filled with energy and left all our windows shining both inside and out as well as floors freshly cleaned and waxed. They are welcome back anytime!”
Canopius Bermuda CEO Stephen Hartwig, who also participated, said: “We were happy to lend a hand in support of the fine work of the dedicated staff.
“Having the chance to talk briefly with some of the residents gave special meaning to our visit.
“After such a positive experience we don’t want to lose the momentum and are keen to return soon.
“As is often the case, in the end, you receive more than you give.”
The Canopius team included Jeremy Wright, Annemarie Tobin, Tracey Beach, Stephanie Lewis, Sanae Russell and Sahima Choudhury.
The group now plan to meet with their director to find other ways to offer assistance throughout the year.
