We virtually couldn’t do it without you

Dear Sir,

The Committee of Management of the Lady Cubitt Compassionate Association extends sincere thanks and gratitude to all members of our community who generously donated to our virtual Tag Day fundraiser held during September and October.

The year 2020 presented Bermuda with many challenges: the Covid-19 pandemic, the negative impact on our tourism industry, the domino effect on employment opportunities, hurricanes. They all impacted our daily lives.

We were not able to be physically present in the community in the traditional Tag Day scenario, where our volunteers and other service organisations would willingly give their time to facilitate the success of our fundraising efforts.

This being the major annual fundraiser for the LCCA, we appealed to all to donate via the options available.

We thank the businesses and establishments who offered other options to raise funds. We appreciate The Supermart grocery store for offering a “round-up” option for customers to donate when purchasing their groceries.

The total amount of $31,579 received from this virtual fundraising event will be used in our General Assistance Programme for the benefit of the elderly, children and the less fortunate members of our community. The proceeds allow the LCCA to continue to carry out the ideals and philosophy of our founder, Lady Cubitt.

We refer you to our website, www.lcca.bm, to familiarise yourself with how the LCCA can be of assistance to you.

Once again, we sincerely thank each and every person for your contribution to the LCCA.

VERONICA HARVEY

Executive Director
