Staff at a local insurance company are volunteering their time to help a charity that provides homes for women and their children.

Freisenbruch-Meyer employees have spent hours decorating the Transformational Living Centre for Families, which opened earlier this year, and landscaping the charity’s grounds and courtyard. The firm has also made financial donations to the fledgling organisation through monthly Denim Day donations.

Edonna Bean, TLC’s executive officer, said: “On behalf of our staff and guest families, we would like to take this time to profoundly thank Freisenbruch-Meyer and their staff.

“We thank them for their generous financial donations and their volunteer’s meaningful addition to our courtyard. It is important to understand that with visual enhanced beauty, the therapeutic touch that a garden offers to anyone is extremely powerful and increases the chances of healing and transformation within the mind, body and spirit.”

She added: “We at the Transformational Living Centre remain focused and dedicated to the constant mission of inspiring mothers to grow and overcome any circumstances that life can present to them.

“We appreciate the outreach from Freisenbruch-Meyer for choosing to partner with us and what we stand for in our community. We look forward to a successful future and thriving relationship to further our service to Bermuda and our families in need.”

One volunteer, Julian Sykes, described the satisfaction he felt giving his time to TLC.

He said: “Seeing Freisenbruch-Meyer’s focused efforts on the TLC project, I personally felt drawn to any help where I could make the most impact.

“As an avid gardener and outdoorsman, during my initial volunteering, I saw there was a need for additional landscaping and gardening. Working closely with the TLC team I have been able to create a vegetable garden and children’s sandbox providing an additional therapeutic element to all that the TLC offers.

“It has been extremely rewarding and I am so pleased to provide support to the resident families.”

Andy Wright, the chief executive officer of Freisenbruch-Meyer, added: “I am so proud of our Freisenbruch-Meyer staff for their compassion and commitment to our corporate social responsibility platform.

“We as a company, and as individuals are thrilled to be able to partner with the TLC to support and help provide new opportunities and experiences for families.

“With our ongoing support in 2022, Freisenbruch-Meyer is pleased to be actively involved in ensuring the welfare and success of the current and future resident families at the Transformational Living Centre.”
