KFC helps charity with Halloween effort

Following a very successful 4th consecutive ‘Halloween Treat Voucher' Campaign, KFC announces that they raised $3,012 in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bermuda after another year of selling treat voucher booklets at their Queen Street, Hamilton location. KFC was excited to support one of Bermuda's most noteworthy charities and delighted that they were able to handover a sizable cheque to help the charity and its initiatives.

For only two dollars, packets of 5 vouchers were available from KFC to redeem for KFC product with retail value up to $12.25. Each voucher allows a child aged 12 or under to redeem it and receive either an apple turnover, one order of French fries or a chocolate chip cookie. All vouchers are valid until January 31st, 2019 at KFC's Hamilton location.

Ms. Patrina O'Connor-Paynter, Managing Director at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bermuda said, “When we were selected for a second consecutive year, we were absolutely delighted to partner again with KFC on this exciting Halloween initiative. We are very grateful to KFC, and everyone who purchased a voucher booklet. On behalf of the Littles in our programme, we would like to say, ‘Thank You' for your investment in mentoring”.

Ms. Ginene Haslam, General Manager of KFC, says: “We would like to thank our customers for supporting this campaign. We are very happy to have raised $3,012, and I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate the two (2) top fundraisers: Zakee Govia and Kelly Tweed. We know how challenging fundraising can be for local Charities, so being able to help their local programmes and initiatives with this contribution is rewarding”.

Should you want to find out more about Big Brothers Big Sisters and its initiatives, please feel free to call Patrina O'Connor-Paynter at 232-2802.
