Seven local charities received more than $30,000 raised through the sale of the 2022 Rubis Calendar.

A spokesman for Rubis Energy Bermuda said Age Concern, the Bermuda Hospitals Board, Big Brothers Big Sisters Bermuda, St John Ambulance, Outward Bound, Pals and the Coalition for the Protection of Children each received a cheque for $4,758.57.

Jermaine Simons, sales manager for Rubis, said: “We hope this donation will help these charities, especially during these current challenging times that we all are experiencing.

“The theme of the 2022 calendar was ‘Heroes of the Pandemic’, and each of these charities were selected by various Pandemic Hero Groups featured in the calendar.

“We hope that these donations will help these charities to sustain their efforts to achieve their respective missions.”

Mr Simons added that the fundraising efforts will continue into the new year with the 2023 Rubis Calendar, which will benefit a new group of charities.

“In addition, anyone who purchases a calendar will automatically transform their $5 donation into a Fuel Savers package valued at more than $40, and have a head-start on 2023 clues that may win them up to $250 in fuel,” he said.

Charities to benefit from the 2023 calendar include the Bermuda Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, BSMART Development Foundation, Habitat for Humanity of Bermuda, the Lady Cubitt Compassionate Association, and the Somerset Brigade Band’s Women’s Auxiliary.
