Lawyers boost charity coffers by $23k

(CNS): Staff working at Appleby (Cayman) Ltd have raised over US$23,000 in the last 12 months for ‘Meals on Wheels’ and Cayman HospiceCare through a special ‘dress down for work’ programme where employees have donated donating a portion of their salary to help the charities. Appleby’s Cayman office Managing Partner, Bryan Hunter, said each year staff identify charities they feel are most in need of financial assistance. “This year we are delighted to be supporting Meals on Wheels and Cayman HospiceCare and know that the money we have raised will be put to immediate use,” he said.

Staff have also supported charitable organisations in areas such as education, sports, women’s needs, and animal care.
“Charitable giving is an integral part of our commitment to Cayman and an integral part of our corporate responsibility programme which has been in place since the firm was established in 1945,” said Hunter. “Over the last few years the programme has allowed us to donate in excess of $60,000 to Cayman HospiceCare, and other charities have also received significant funding in the past such as the Cayman Islands Humane Society, Estella Scott Roberts Foundation, Cayman Islands Crisis Centre, and Cayman Islands Cancer Society.”
For the coming fiscal year Appleby has expanded the programme to support three charities: The Extended Afterschool Programme, Cayman HospiceCare, and Cayman Islands Humane Society.  All of these organisations will receive funding during 2014.
