The Green family has donated $50,000 to a charity under financial strain in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The family, which own the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, made the donation to the Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre, which launched an appeal to raise $200,000 to cover costs.

Lynne Woolridge, CEO of the Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre, said: “We are grateful for the continued support from the Green family over the past decade, and we particularly appreciate it during this, our 75th year of operation, in our time of need.

“This donation addresses our immediate concerns and will go a long way towards ensuring our longer-term sustainability.”

Alexander Green said: “The Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre provides a crucial service to many Bermudians at the time of their greatest need, allowing them to receive care on island rather than having to travel overseas.

“We are very pleased to be able to help them in their mission and we urge other members of the community to support them too, in whatever way they can.”

The Centre suffered a funding shortfall after suspending all screening services during shelter in place, and was left further out of pocket by the cost of purchasing personal protective equipment and the cancellation of lucrative fundraisers.

The Centre is estimated to have subsidised more than $2 million of treatment, screening and care for locals.
