Hospital fundraiser

The Island's uniformed services pledged a welcome boost to the fundraising campaign for Bermuda's new hospital, by announcing an Inter-Service Gold Tournament to be held next month.

The Bermuda Police Service is partnering with Bermuda Fire and Rescue, the Bermuda Regiment and the Department of Corrections, in support of the Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Trust (BHCT) “Why it Matters” campaign.

Sponsors have also thrown their weight behind the Captain's Choice tournament, which takes place at Riddell's Bay on October 25.

Police Deputy Commissioner Mike Jackman said Auto Solutions had donated a car as a prize to any lucky golfer taking part who can score a hole-in-one at the 17th green.

Additional sponsorship openings are available, added retired Chief Fire Officer Vince Hollinsid — starting as low as $130.

Teams are already signing up for the tournament, which starts at 1pm. Those interested in taking part should contact Inspector Tracy Burgess at 717-2000.
