Young volunteers honoured for their work

Bermuda's young volunteers have been praised for their efforts by the Centre on Philanthropy and Allied World.

The 17 young people gathered at the Allied World Building in Pembroke on Monday as part of the insurance company's community day celebrations

The Centre on Philanthropy's executive director Elaine Butterfield and Jonathan Lee of Allied World gave speeches and certificates to the honorees.

Jenice Germain, volunteer coordinator at the centre, said: “This shows that our young people are learning to give the gift of time, and we are thrilled that non-profits are providing opportunities for Bermuda's youth to give back.

“Today we are standing in the midst of future philanthropists who will continue to make a tremendous contribution to the community in the years to come.”

The youths receiving thanks were: Rhianna Allen, Mackenzie Costa, Veronica DeGraff, Lauren DeSousa, Nkosi Edwards, John Ewles, Lèa Grandisson, Sophia Hamilton, Jala Hayward, Jamal Hewey, Natalie Lightbourne, Danielle Maloney, Channa McGowen, Emily Medway, Sihle Sharrieff-Hayward, Jessica Swain and Logan Thompson.
