Seniors back on the road
A charity offering a free ride to Bermuda’s seniors has just got an extra set of wheels.
Project Action, which was fighting for its survival last year, can now use its new van to resume regular trips to public and private rest homes, according to co-founder Cindy Swan.
“It’s fabulous and we will try to offer each home two rides a month, and some to our seniors’ clubs as well,” she said.
The purchase became possible after a national appeal for help prompted an outpouring of assistance.
The charity took charge of a van that seats ten, with wheelchair accommodation, at a tea for seniors on Friday at Rosewood Tucker’s Point.
Hannover Life Reassurance, a major donor, funded the gathering, which hosted residents from the Sylvia Richardson Rest Home and seniors of Ebenezer Methodist Church.
While the charity’s fundraising continues, the donation proved a windfall for the free service.
Project Action’s traditional Christmas raffle is being switched to an Easter raffle as the charity’s top fundraiser for 2018.
