Green family donates $33,000 to local charities

The Green family this morning announced donations to four local charities totalling $33,000.

Andrew Green said: “We are delighted to assist these four charities that continually strive to provide the utmost care to the residents of Bermuda.

“Charities depend on donations for the important work that they do within the Bermuda community.”

The donations match those made by former members of the Princess Staff Club.

Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre, Bermuda Diabetes Association, Salvation Army and The Lady Cubitt Compassionate Association each received $8,326.

A spokeswoman for the family said that Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre will use the donation for its Equal Access Fund to assist patients who do not have health insurance cover cancer treatments and services.

Bermuda Diabetes Association will put the money towards its Client Assisted Programme, which provides free medicine to people with diabetes in financial need.

The Salvation Army's Family Services unit, which provides funding during the winter month, will benefit from the donation.

The LCCA will use the money in its General Assistance Programme which provides general financial support.
