Less-fortunate children in the BVI and Cayman Islands are set to benefit this Christmas thanks to the generosity of team members from Bedell Cristin.
The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) in Tortola, BVI, is hosting a community Christmas party on 21 December 2021 and Bedell Cristin has made a monetary donation towards the running of the event.
Lisa Walmisley, Partner (BVI) says, "We are delighted to have been able to donate toys and funds for this initiative from the RVIPF. A children's Christmas party is a wonderful way to participate in the Christmas season. It is a privilege to be able to bring some Christmas magic to children who might otherwise not experience a party or receive gifts."
In our Cayman Islands office the team has once again donated their budget for holiday gifts to the 16th annual 'Toys for Tots' appeal organised by the Cayman Islands Motorcycle Riders Association (CIMRA). By donating to this incredibly worthwhile charity the team aims to spread some holiday cheer to less-fortunate children.
Laura Hatfield, Partner (Cayman Islands) explains how the success of last year's event spurred the team on to contribute once more. "Since the pandemic it seems everyone is more mindful of families suffering economically due to circumstances beyond their control. The positive feedback on our donation to the CIMRA Toys for Tots project last year, not to mention the looks on the kids' faces when getting their gifts made it a no-brainer to do it again this year. CIMRA do an amazing job and we are honoured to support them."
We'd like to extend our gratitude to the RVIPF and CIMRA for organising these wonderful initiatives for the benefit of the local communities.
