BTC staff donate to Age Concern
Phone company staff have donated $200 and food to charity Age Concern.
Kevin Simmons, of the BTC service department, said the employees chose Age Concern because of the important role it played in the lives of senior citizens.
He added: “One day we may be like this — in need of help as a senior citizen; it’s a good community service.”
Debrina Ming explained that the staff members in the service department contributed all the food through a Christmas hamper appeal.
She added staff were now considering whether to make a donation to the charity every year.
The donations were handed over to Age Concern on Tuesday.
Charles Jeffers, deputy chairman of Age Concern, said with more than 3,000 members, the organisation welcomed assistance.
He added: “We are always pleased when members of the public or organisations make a donation.”
Mr Jeffers said: “Our main objective is to look out for the rights of seniors. When people make donations to us they make it easier for us.”
