Aspen employees help Paget project
Employees of Aspen Bermuda Limited have played a part in cleaning up Paget Island.
The firm’s Clean-up Day, on May 31, saw staff get involved with the Fort Cunningham Restoration Project, spearheaded by the Mirrors Programme as a part of its 10th year celebration activities.
Social development minister Nandi Outerbridge said in a statement: “We appreciate Aspen’s corporate citizenship in assisting us towards the goal of restoring Fort Cunningham to its former glory, for all Bermudians and visitors to enjoy.
“It’s these types of efforts that will strengthen our youth, families and community as a whole”.
Aspen, Mirrors, Outward Bound and the Department of Parks spent the day on the island, focusing on the entrance area to the fort, in preparation for the summer activities.
The Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation provided the transport.
Brittany de Frias, technical assistant at Aspen Re and head of the charity committee, said: “Spending the day at Paget Island was incredible. It felt really good to know that Aspen’s hard work during the Corporate Day of Giving will go a long way in restoring Fort Cunningham.”
Chris Jones, claims manager at Aspen Re, said: “The day was very well organised by Mirrors, Parks and Outward Bound. Mirrors has successfully identified a legacy project — restoration of the fort that will provide Bermuda’s youth with invaluable experience in life skills.”
