LCCA to hold tag day on Friday
One of Bermuda’s oldest charities is to hold its annual tag day on Friday to raise funds for people in need.
The Lady Cubitt Compassionate Association tag day has long been a part of the charity’s fundraising and awareness calendar.
Funds raised will go towards food vouchers, Belco vouchers, children’s summer school support and dental care for seniors.
Marisa Howard, executive director of LCCA: “Since the onset of Covid, we have seen a dramatic increase in the need of our programmes, especially when it comes to food vouchers. We encourage the public to give generously on September 22.
“As one of Bermuda’s oldest charities, we have been quietly helping our community for over 90 years. The LCCA truly tries to help when it matters most.”
The LCCA was established in 1932 by Lady Cubitt, wife of the Governor at the time, and incorporated in 1945 with the objective “to relieve poverty, suffering, distress, and to promote happiness and wellbeing among those in our community who are less fortunate”.
Tag sellers will be located at various locations around the island. Alternatively, donors may visit www.lcca.bm to donate.
