$3,000 boost for Salvation Army

The Salvation Army has been given more than $3,000 after a fundraiser by the Bermuda Irish Association.

The group held a Christmas lunch on Wednesday at Port O' Call to mark their first anniversary and used the opportunity to raise $3,410. Among the contributors was Digicel, who donated $1,500 to support the charity's work.

Co-founder of the Association, Brian Quinn, said: “The Bermuda Irish Association exists to facilitate social and business contact between Irish people living and who have lived in Bermuda.

“Our events throughout the year aim to support select local Bermudian charities that both benefit the community and demonstrate the Irish support of local worthy causes.”

Since it was formed last year, the Association has hosted four events, raising $10,000 for charity.
