Appleby’s Bermuda office has delivered holiday gift donations to local charity Star – Supportive Therapy for Aids Persons and their Relatives.

This marks Appleby’s 24th year supporting Star families during the holiday season.

The law firm said it participates annually in Star’s Christmas donation drive by supporting six families with holiday food hampers, fruit baskets, gifts and vouchers.

Brad Adderley, Bermuda managing partner, said: “As longstanding supporters of Star, we commend the important work the charity has been doing in our community for over 30 years.

“Thank you to our team for their donations and contributions in purchasing and wrapping gifts, and to the firm for its continued support of this important charity. We wish our six Star families the very best of holiday wishes.”

The firm said Star has remained a constant source of support to persons with HIV and their families, providing comprehensive assistance since 1986.

Star’s work has benefited more than 170 people at its Lighthouse facility, which aims to provide a family environment for residents, including men, women and children.

In addition, Appleby said, Star offers support throughout the island to persons living with HIV by way of confidential counselling and personal caregivers visiting homes, the hospital and hospices.
