  • – Construction Association of Bermuda $5,000.00

Ian Truran, Chief Executive Officer of Clarien Bank, said: “On our quest to become Bermuda’s best bank, Clarien has remained committed to investing in the local community. Through financial and in kind support to charities, our aim is to improve the lives of all Bermudians and ultimately strengthen the fabric of our society.

“With this said, it is our pleasure today to be able to support these six not-for-profit organisations as they carry out their important work in Bermuda. We are proud to once again assist The Reading Clinic in its efforts to provide literacy programmes to children pre-school age and up, as well as the Family Centre, which offers early intervention services to children suffering from family based problems.

“This year, we also have the opportunity to assist some not-for-profits for the first time, including Team Hurricane Basketball Academy, Bermuda’s first and original elite youth basketball academy, which aims to build high character student-athletes who bring a commitment and joy to the game. We are grateful to assist each of these organisations as they continue to make strides to better Bermuda.”
