Bermuda volunteers and the Royal Navy combined forces to transport and load tonnes of aid onto the HMS Protector on Sunday [Sept 8] after people showed an outpouring of support for the hurricane ravaged Bahamas.

After a call was made on September 6 for people to donate items for the Bahamas, the Seventh-Day Adventist Church on King Street was filled with new items, with some 200 tonnes of goods donated, ranging from building supplies and cleaning supplies, to cases of water, food, diapers and much more.

Local truckers volunteered their time to transport the goods to the ship on Front Street, with lines of trucks seen waiting to drop off the supplies.

Speaking at press conference on Sunday [Sept 8], a representative of the HMS Protector said, “It has been inspiring to see the outpouring of help and aid that has been loaded on board my ship here in Bermuda. The spirit of this island in helping another island is just amazing. So we are humbled to have been a part of this mission.”

    Why didn’t they go to Freeport where the storm actually affected people. I worry that most of the items we all sent ar nt actually going to get to those in need since the ship went to the capital which was t affected at all by the storm.
