Staff from a reinsurance firm rolled up their sleeves to help spruce up a St George landmark.

Volunteers from Ascot Bermuda Limited joined the Bermuda National Trust during the Trust’s volunteer day last week to clean out all four floors and the gardens of the Globe Museum.

Charlotte Andrews, the BNT’s head of cultural heritage, who led the team-building exercise, said that the group was instrumental in offering ideas to reimagine the space.

Dr Andrews added: “With our volunteer days designed to connect the corporate team more deeply with one another, and with Bermuda’s heritage, we hope the Ascot team got great value out of their day, which they generously supported with a corporate donation.”

The teams helped clean out exhibit cases, weed the gardens and cleaned out the cellar space.

Ian Thompson, Ascot CEO, said: “I was delighted to learn that Ascot was the largest corporate group hosted by the Bermuda National Trust at their museums.

“This strong showing by the Ascot team illustrates our ardent willingness to get involved with community initiatives.

“I am also grateful to the BNT for their hospitality – it was a very enjoyable day, and we were honoured to play our part in preserving Bermuda's rich heritage.”

Brittany DeMelo, who helped co-ordinate the volunteer day, added: “The Bermuda National Trust plays an important role in preserving Bermuda’s heritage.

“Dr Andrews delivered an enlightening talk about the World Heritage Site and its value to Bermuda and all of humanity.

“Every Christmas I attend the Christmas Walkabout in St George, and it will be even more special this year knowing our Ascot team has played a part in supporting our World Heritage Site.”
