Members of a rugby club scrummed down to raise more than $4,000 to help staff laid off from a bar and restaurant over the coronavirus crisis.

Desmond Nash, the president of Renegades RFC, said: “As a result of the business lockdown in Bermuda during the Covid-19 outbreak, we have been aware of the difficult times in particular for those working in the hospitality industry.

“As a result of this, the members of Renegades have made a donation of $4,255 to a fund to help out the laid-off staff of the Bermuda Bistro at the Beach.

“The Beach has previously provided sponsorship to our club and we have always appreciated the hard work and excellent service provided by their staff.”

Mr Nash presented the cheque to Duncan Adams, the Front Street bar’s general manager.
