Margaret Rose Wade PhotoThis year the Bermuda Post Office will commemorate World Post Day by highlighting the impact of the postal sector in the day to day lives of people and businesses in honour of the late Margaret Rose Wade [1962-2012] [pictured], a former colleague who spent a number of years giving back to our community.

A spokesperson said, “World Post Day is observed annually by all postal administrations within the Universal Postal Union [UPU] on October 9.

“Its purpose is to create an awareness of the post’s contribution to the social and economic development of countries and the impact of the postal sector on the day to day lives of people and businesses.

“The celebration of World Post Day encourages UPU member countries to undertake activities aimed at generating broader awareness of the Post’s role and activities among the public on a national scale. Each year, more than 150 countries celebrate World Post Day in a variety of ways.

“This year the Bermuda Post Office [BPO] will commemorate World Post Day by highlighting the impact of the postal sector in the day to day lives of people and businesses in honour of the late Margaret Rose Wade [1962-2012], a former colleague who spent a number of years giving back to our community and to the people that she came into contact with in the course of her duties with the Bermuda Post Office.

Ms. Wade grew up in Jones’ Village in Warwick and served as a delivery person in Warwick parish where she was stationed at the Warwick Post Office and later served as a janitor in the General Post Office.

Up until her death Ms. Wade faithfully provided breakfast to children on school mornings, managed a clothing bank for her church to provide clothing to those in need, baked and cooked for her colleagues to promote a healthier way of eating.

Ms. Wade also volunteered for the Mirrors Program, was actively involved in the Bermuda Lupus Association and many other community based activities. With all of her volunteerism, Margaret rarely missed a day from work despite her ongoing health challenges with the debilitating disease of Lupus.

Tomorrow teams of volunteers from the BPO will volunteer their services, to the Lorraine Rest Home in Warwick and the Warwick Pre-School located in Ms. Wade’s former delivery district.
