Tokio Millennium Re pitches in for three charities
A local company has pitched in on behalf of three charities, in the first day of giving for Tokio Millennium Re.
Staff spent Thursday restoring Dockyard’s historic Casemates Barracks, clearing the grounds at WindReach, and painting the library for The Reading Clinic.
Company CEO Tats Hoshina said local workers were volunteering at the same time as Tokio employees in Zurich, Australia and London.
Bermuda National Museum director Ed Harris said the executives’ work at Casemates helped ready the barracks for restoration.
Meanwhile, Erica Fulton of Windreach said the special needs charity’s four-acre property got much-needed maintenance.
“They worked to clear areas of our sensory trail and pond, as well as parts of our boundaries that have become overgrown with invasives,” Ms Fulton said.
“A large group like this can accomplish a lot in a few hours — and it also gives us an opportunity to show Tokio staff what they have been helping to support over the years.”
The Reading Clinic’s Julie Dunstan said the work on the educational charity’s resources library would help remind students of the community’s support behind them.
The company is already the lead sponsor for the Clinic’s Core Reading Programme.
The day of giving is to become an annual event.
