Insurance company Catalina Holdings has donated 30 filled school backpacks to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bermuda to support students in need.

Tina Rego, chairwoman of the company’s environmental, social and governance committee, said: “During a period where many people are experiencing extreme levels of hardship in our community and subsequent to discussions internally with Catalina’s ESG Committee, the team felt compelled to assist Big Brothers Big Sisters in a meaningful way that would directly equip students with supplies, enabling them to have a good start to the beginning of the school year.”

And Patrina Paynter, managing director of Big Brothers Big Sisters said: “We are delighted that Catalina recognises and appreciates the impact and positive role that Big Brothers Big Sisters plays within our community and are most appreciative that they were able to support this initiative, through the donation of school supplies to students.”
