Environmental charity Keep Bermuda Beautiful got a $10,000 boost thanks to the Gardening Club of Bermuda.

Katie Berry, the executive director of Keep Bermuda Beautiful, thanked the club for its donation and congratulated the group on its 100th anniversary.

She added: “KBB needs all of us to do our part. We must look at how our waste is managed and recycled and make sure we are doing the right thing to preserve our island and ultimately the planet.”

KBB was started in the 1960s by four Gardening Club members — Phyllis West Harron, Janette Zuill, Dorothea King and Lady Gasgoigne — to combat litter on the island.

The charity organised more than 200 clean-ups across the island last year and has taken part in the Beyond Plastic campaign, which hopes to rid the island of plastic waste, and the Abandoned Boat Project, which has removed 27 abandoned vessels from the water.
