The Salvation Army has been given $10,000 by the owners of the Hamilton Princess.

The Green family made the donation in support of the charity’s work during Christmas and throughout the year.

Andrew Green thanked the organisation for “the important work that the Salvation Army does in our community”.

He added: “We are pleased to make this contribution to assist with their many important programmes over the holiday season and into the new year.”

Salvation Army spokesman Calvin Ming said the charity had been “blessed by their support for some time”.

Mr Ming added: “With 1,200 families and as many as 1,800 individuals in need this holiday season, donations such as this are particularly welcome.

“Our work also continues throughout the year, and we look forward to continuing to serve the Bermuda public in the new year, in the name of God and our generous donors, such as the Green family.”
