Appleby donates to charity

Appleby's Bermuda office presented Christmas trees, holiday food hampers and gifts to local charity STAR (Supportive Therapy for Aids Persons and their Relatives) on 13 December 2018. STAR has provided support for over 30 years to persons with HIV and their families.

Appleby participates annually in STAR's Christmas Donation Drive by supporting six families with Christmas trees, food hampers, fruit baskets, toys, clothing, vouchers and toiletries. Bermuda Managing Partner Tim Faries and volunteer staff coordinators presented the donated items to STAR representative Mr. Bacardi.

Mr Faries said, “We celebrate the important work of STAR in our community and are proud of our twenty years of support. From our Appleby family to the STAR families we extend our very best holiday wishes.”

STAR's work in the Bermuda community has benefited more than 170 people at its Lighthouse facility, which aims to provide a family environment for residents, including men, women and children. In addition, STAR offers support throughout the island to persons living with HIV by way of confidential counselling and personal caregivers visiting homes, the hospital and hospices.
