“In his speech the Governor commented on Her Majesty’s sense of duty and her dedication to public service. He observed that this year the Royal Bermuda Regiment together with five local charities had been invited to have an information stand at the Party to raise awareness of their work. These charities included: The Bermuda National Trust, The Bermuda Red Cross, SCARS, PALS and The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.”

The Governor said: “I know that each of these charities, and indeed many others in their own areas of speciality, make a real difference in support of the people of this Island and its communities. And if they have inspired you to volunteer yourselves – all the better.”
