CableVision secures grant for Big Brothers Big Sisters
Bermuda CableVision has secured a $1,000 grant from the Caribbean Cable and Telecommunications Association (CCTA) for the mentoring charity Big Brother Big Sisters of Bermuda (BBBS).
Cablevision nominated BBBS to receive the award for the sixth consecutive year though CCTA’s Community Charities Programme. Since 1993 active CCTA members and cable operators have nominated a number of charitable organisations for a $1,000 grant.
“As the economically tough times continue unabated, we are grateful to CCTA for selecting the Bermuda chapter of BBBS to receive this funding,” said Edward Cherwinski, Chief Financial Officer at Bermuda CableVision. “We nominated the charity once more for its continued efforts in helping Bermuda’s most vulnerable young people by connecting them with an adult mentor to act as a positive role model and friend.”
Mr Cherwinski presented the cheque to Fund Development and Marketing Communications Director Patricia O’Connor-Paynter at BBBS Bermuda. “This donation is especially welcome at a time when we are feeling the financial pressures of this recession,” said Ms O’Connor-Paynter. “It will support us in our commitment to meeting the ever-increasing demand for a high-quality mentoring service on the Island.”
