The Bermudian

 

January 17, 2015 - Four organisations that protect and serve the Island were tonight recognised with Bermuda CableVision Community Service Awards at the company’s tenth annual ‘Salute to Service’ banquet held at The Fairmont Southampton. 

This year’s recipients are: Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service, Emergency Medical Technicians, Bermuda Police Service and the Bermuda Regiment for going beyond the call of duty to protect the Island and its people. 

Martha Dismont, Executive Director of the Family Centre, was recognised with the annual Rollin Nathan Community Award.  She was honoured for her work over the years in helping Bermuda’s families. 

In addition, Bermuda CableVision made a $50,000 donation over two years to the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club Sailing Academy for the purchase of four SL16 Catamarans to be used by young sailors across the Island.

This year, CableVision celebrates the tenth anniversary of the Community Service Awards, which began in December 2004. Since then, dozens of men and women from all walks of life have been recognised for helping their fellow citizens and contributing to their community.

The event also included last year’s Bermuda CableVision Community Service Award winners: Helene Dill, a prolific volunteer; seven senior school volunteers in recognition of hundreds of hours of community service; and five leading, local food companies for participating in CableVision’s “Open Hands Loving Hearts” food drive. Many of the Bermuda CableVision Community Service Award winners from previous years, representing a vast array of good causes, were in attendance as well.
