Appleby presents hampers to charity

Aids charity STAR has received holiday food hampers and gifts from law firm Appleby's Bermuda office.

The company participates annually in STAR's Christmas Donation Drive by supporting six families.

Partners donate Christmas trees, food hampers and fruit baskets, while staff donate gifts such as toys, clothing, vouchers and toiletries.

Bermuda managing partner Tim Faries and volunteer staff coordinators presented the donated items to STAR representative Vanessa Simpson.

Mr Faries said in a statement: “We have been working with STAR during the holiday season for 17 years and hope that our support provides some additional Christmas cheer to our STAR families.

“I'd like to thank our staff who generously donated and our volunteer coordinators who assisted with the hampers on each floor. They are Jennifer Bean, Glenda Carlington, Jill Crofton, Matthew Ebbs-Brewer, Reshna Govender, Shira Jatto, Clive Langley, Thalia Lightbourne, Penny Pfenning, Steven Rees-Davies, Tiffani Stevens, and Tiffany Tavares.”

STAR has provided support for almost 30 years to people with HIV and their families,

STAR's work in the Bermuda community has benefited more than 170 people at its Light House facility, which aims to provide a family environment for residents, including men, women and children.

In addition, STAR offers support throughout the Island to people living with HIV by way of confidential counselling and personal caregivers visiting homes, the hospital and hospices.
