Irish group makes charity presentation

The Bermuda Irish Association and BTC has presented $4,500 to the Eliza DoLittle Society of Bermuda following a fundraising “Half Way to St Patrick's Day” event.

The group has now collected $10,800 for local charities over the past 12 months, including donations and support from BTC, Digicel, Docksider Pub and RenaissanceRe.

Charities that have benefited throughout 2015 are The Salvation Army, The Eliza DoLittle Society, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and Help Neehari Nuke Cancer.

Barry Murphy, CFO of BTC stated: “We are committed to investing in the community and we're honoured to aid in the Bermuda Irish Association's efforts to help the Eliza DoLittle Society and others.

“It is extraordinary to see companies and people in Bermuda join together for worthwhile initiatives. BTC is a company that Bermuda can count on and taking a leading role in being a part of this came naturally to us.”
