Butterfield & Vallis staff to help charities
Staff at Butterfield & Vallis will be out and about across the island tomorrow afternoon as the business holds its annual charity day.
Both divisions of the company will close at 3pm to allow staff to take part in a variety of projects, among them Keep Bermuda Beautiful clean-ups at Shelly Bay Beach, playground and park, the shoreline from Empire Grocery, Palmetto Road, Astwood Park and beach and Mangrove Bay Beach.
The company's workers will also be helping at the Bermuda National Trust, Salvation Army, WindReach, SPCA, the aquarium, Pals, a number of rest homes and nurseries, First Baptiste Church, Cedar Tree Vets, Dolphin Quest, Bermuda Heart Foundation, and the Bermuda Jump Rope Federation.
Butterfield & Vallis held its first charity day last year to coincide with the company's 100th anniversary. It is expected that about 200 employees will take part in tomorrow's activities.
Butterfield & Vallis, in a statement, said it is involved in supporting countless events throughout the year with sponsorships and donations and that the charity day is another way that the staff “can give back and make a difference”.
