Bermuda CableVision presented three awards and six donations totalling $35,000 to individuals and organisations making special contributions to building Bermuda’s rich culture with its many international influences, at its eighth annual ‘Salute to Service’ Banquet held at The Fairmont Southampton on January 19.

Andrea Moniz-DeSouza and Susan Moore-Williams were honoured with Bermuda CableVision Community Service Awards for their leadership in this regard as Presidents of Vasco da Gama Club and The West Indian Association respectively. Bermuda Sloop Foundation was recognised with the annual Rollin Nathan Community Award for the development opportunities it provides to hundreds of young Bermudians from all social and economic backgrounds. Bermuda CableVision also made a surprise announcement of $10,000 donations to the Anglican Church of Pembroke, Hamilton Seventh Day Adventist Church and The Salvation Army, to support their feeding programmes for those in need.

Mr. George Fergusson, Governor and Commander-in-Chief; the Hon. Craig Cannonier, JP, MP, Premier of Bermuda; the Hon.
