“It is an honor to make a donation that will help the Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Trust develop a world-class medical facility.”

“The legacy and commitment to our hospital by the Gibbons Family is demonstrated through this gift from Edmund Gibbons Limited. Notably Winifred Gibbons’ investment has been invaluable,” said Wendy Augustus, Executive Director of the Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Trust.”This generous gift will have a profound impact on the health and well-being of our community.”

    Gibbons family have a deep commitment to Bermuda. It’s not just the business, it is also in their heart.

    A huge thankyou to the Gibbons family. I suspect that this is not the first substantial donation for the public good. A number of established Bermuda families have made substantial donations in cash & property to the people of Bermuda, often with little thanks or appreciation shown by some quarters.
