Mr. Rose said, “It is with a great deal of pleasure that we offer our support to the Spirit of Bermuda by donating a year’s supply of diesel fuel for the vessel.”

He continued, “It came to our attention that due to cutbacks in grants from a variety of sources, this charity was in need of assistance to continue with their very worthwhile programmes which provide positive team-building and character development for the youth of Bermuda, particularly at the Middle School level [ages 11- 14].”

Mr.Jermaine Simons, Sales & Marketing Manager of RUBiS Energy Bermuda said, “The Spirit of Bermuda has recently reached out to the private sector for support and we felt that this fitted very nicely into our corporate positioning which is one of education and supporting Bermuda’s Youth.”

Continuing he said, “We are very proud to be able to assist such a worthy cause and are sure that our donation of fuel will enable those children that participate to engage in a healthy and educational activity that they will remember for the rest of their lives. Children that participate will find a valuable experience to help assist them in being productive members of our community”

    I applaud Rubis for contributing to such a worthwhile cause. I was surprised to see on the news that the Spirit is in financial difficulties. Their operating costs for the year was stated as 1.4 million. Surely this is quite a high number and can be looked at and trimmed?
