“I would like to thank Marsh and Guy Carpenter for their support of the Scout Association of Bermuda,” said Geoffrey Rothwell, Chief Commissioner, Scout Association of Bermuda.

“In addition to a $2,000 donation, two employees, Nic L. Plianthos and Tim P. Smith, are valuable volunteers to the Scouts in Bermuda.

We are grateful to them and to the companies for their help in growing our presence on the Island this year to involve more young people.”
