BHL Donates to the Future Centre Trust
August 3, 2017
Banks Holdings Limited (BHL) has presented $1,160.95 to the Future Centre Trust, in support of its work to increase awareness of environmental conservation in Barbados. The money was raised by management and staff during a staff auction held over the 2016 Christmas season.
Corporate Affairs Manager, Sophia Cambridge, says BHL has partnered with the Future Centre Trust for many years. “The staff selected the Future Centre Trust from the ten charities that we support, to be the recipient of our yuletide donations. We are always happy to partner with the Future Centre Trust because their efforts to spread awareness of environmental issues align with BHL’s goals.”
The Future Centre Trust’s Programme Manager, Ann Harding, also expressed her excitement about the donation. “The money will assist us in our mission to educate Barbadians on how we can live sustainably and take care of our beautiful environment.”
The BHL has supported the Future Centre Trust for several years through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme; H.E.L.P. (Heritage, Environment, Learning and People), which partners with ten organizations in various sectors across Barbados, and through the Coca-Cola Foundation which assists with recycling efforts and campaigns.
More information on the BHL’s H.E.L.P programme is available here.
