Heritage Agency donates to Vision Bermuda
Heritage Agency (Bermuda) Limited has donated $1,000 to support Vision Bermuda.
Vision Bermuda, formerly known as the Bermuda Society for the Blind, offers a wide range of programs to promote visual health and empower persons who are blind or visually impaired achieve independence.
Heritage Agency’s parent company Knowledge First Financial Inc, this year celebrated 55 years of inspiring students to realise life’s possibilities by enabling families to maximise their education savings. To mark the occasion, Knowledge First Financial provided a matching donation for every new education savings plan opened between July 6 and August 7. The Heritage Agency team in Bermuda contributed additional funds to their chosen charity.
Gerry Swan, branch director, Heritage Agency (Bermuda) Limited, said: “On behalf our team, we thank you for the valuable support Vision Bermuda offers. We hope these funds will help the individuals with low or no vision feel supported and valued members of our community.”
Theresa Hall, executive director, Vision Bermuda, said: “With Covid-19 and the high risk of many of our clients, Beacon House is currently closed. We are doing as much client work as we are able to safely do, we are currently not doing any group activities. We do, however, hope to be able to get back to a ‘new normal’ version of that very soon and are very appreciative to be selected as a beneficiary of your charitable giving campaign.”
The Heritage International Scholarship Trust (HIST) Plan has been helping families in Bermuda offset the expenses associated with postsecondary education studies for over 32 years. Mr Swan said: “Saving for postsecondary education is one of the best ways to support a child’s future success. I encourage parents and grandparents to contact me to learn more about the Heritage International Scholarship Trust Plan.”
