A couple have donated $2,500 to the Bermuda Hospitals Board to show their appreciation for nursing staff.

Richard and Rebecca Wilson made the donation during Nurses Appreciation Month last month, saying they were grateful for the sacrifices health workers have made.

In a card presented with the cheque, the Wilsons wrote: “We are proud to recognise Nurses Appreciation Month. We are grateful for your dedication, hard work and perseverance during these difficult times of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Nurses are all making incredible sacrifices to keep us safe as they impact the health and wellbeing of Bermuda’s people.

“Your compassion for taking care of every life is remarkable. We can never thank you enough, but we would like to try by donating $2,500 to you, our healthcare heroes!”

BHB’s chief of nursing, Judy Richardson said: “On behalf of our 500 Bermuda Hospitals Board nurses, I thank the Wilsons for this most unexpected and generous gift.”
