Community cash boost for sanshou group

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

The Bermuda Sanshou Association was this afternoon awarded $10,000 from the Cash Back for Communities programme.

Senator Jeff Baron, the Minister of National Security, said the self-defence group has proudly represented the island internationally for years and is more than deserving of the funds.

“It's critical that we begin to not just look at what is happening, but why it is happening when it comes to our public safety issues,” he said.

Garon Wilkinson of the BSA thanked the minister and the government for the donation, saying that the funds would help the group continue its work teaching Bermudians and helping them compete internationally.

“I have a full-time job, but the thing that keeps me up at night is how are we going to fund out athletes,” he said.
