Hurricane fundraiser nets $13,000

A grub day organised by the Bermuda Union of Teachers raised more than $13,000 for the victims of the recent catastrophic hurricanes in the Caribbean.

The BUT invited the general public, all schools and staff to take part in a National Grub Day on September 29 in aid of the victims of Hurricanes Maria and Irma.

President Shannon James said: “We are extremely pleased with the amount collected and want to thank everyone who took part. To raise $13,000 was an incredible effort and typifies the generosity of the people on this island.”
