PHC marks 15 years of helping youngsters
A football club’s educational foundation is to mark its fifteenth year of helping young Bermudians.
The foundation, set up by Pembroke Hamilton Club in 2004, has supported more than 40 students who were involved in the PHC sports programme.
O’Shandah Ming, the PHC Foundation secretary, said: “It is heart-warming to be able to assist the young people involved in the various PHC programmes with furthering their education.
“Having them receive their degrees, return home as accountants or teachers and then give back is priceless.”
The foundation was registered as a charity in 2006 and offered its first scholarship the next year.
Robert Richardson, who won the first scholarship, is now a member of the PHC Foundation committee.
Mr Richardson said it was a pleasure to be able to contribute to the foundation and the young of Bermuda.
He said: “As the club helped me through my youth years, the foundation gave me a springboard into higher education. It was a no-brainer to join the committee and give back.”
Mr Richardson added: “Helping and seeing others develop into well-rounded, educated individuals gives me the energy to continue giving back and I know that we can keep pushing the foundation and the club forward.”
