In the run up to Christmas, Conyers is pleased to gift $52,000 to support food programmes run by four Bermuda churches. The donation includes $40,000 from the firm as the balance of its $100,000 pledge, made in March, to assist the vulnerable members in our community who are negatively impacted by Covid-19. The other $12,000 is a gift from the staff of the Private Client Department and Conyers Trust Company, in lieu of their annual Christmas celebration.
Conyers will give a $13,000 donation each to four churches: the Hamilton and St. David’s Seventh-Day Adventist churches, Christ Church in Warwick, and the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity. The Seventh-Day Adventist churches serve takeout meals to the community on Wednesdays. Christ Church in Warwick serves lunch every day and breakfast on Saturdays, and the Cathedral serves boxed dinners seven days a week.
Already this year, as part of its pledge, Conyers has made donations to the Salvation Army, the Coalition for the Protection of Children and the Each One Reach One Back to School campaign, and also supported Paget Primary with a donation of laptops for remote learning.
“During this unique moment in history, it’s more necessary than ever to come together and support those in our community who have been directly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis,” said Lisa Spencer-Arscott, Global Head of Human Resources.
Peter Pearman, head of the Private Client & Trust practice added: “In this difficult year, the partners and staff of Conyers Private Client Department and Conyers Trust Company are very pleased to donate the money that would have been spent on their holiday celebration to local church food programmes, which provide a critical service to those in our community who are most in need.”
