Family Centre & Clarien Bank Go To The Wicket

July 20, 2019

Family Centre officially kicked off its annual Cup Match campaign with the traditional pinning of the Family Centre’s Cup Match Team Ribbons on the Premier David Burt at the Cabinet Office along with representatives of St. George’s and Somerset Cricket Clubs.

Family Centre’s Cup Match Tag Day is scheduled for Wednesday, July 31st.

Martha Dismont, Executive Director of Family Centre said, “This event is a very special time for us at Family Centre. We get to celebrate this iconic tradition with Bermuda. Every member of staff is involved in the activities of the day.

“Family Centre believes traditions are extremely important to our children and families in Bermuda. Some of the work of Family Centre encourages families and their children to appreciate traditions, and where possible create new ones that strengthen a child or a family’s resilience, who may be facing challenges.

“As an organization, we are very fortunate to have Clarien Bank as our title sponsor. Their active participation on the day contributes to the extra specialness of our Tag Day. Thanks to their support we can offer the Cup Match ribbons and stickers that enhance the spirit of healthy competition and wonderful camaraderie throughout the island.”

Michael DeCouto, Chief Digital and Marketing Officer at Clarien Bank stated, “This marks the 18th year that Clarien Bank has been part of Family Centre’s Cup Match Tag Day. We are delighted to continue our long-standing support of the event and commitment to Family Centre and the vitally important services and resources it provides for families and children at risk in our community.

“We encourage everyone to join us in making a contribution to this important cause and helping Family Centre create a healthier Bermuda for our children. Members of the public are invited to come to Clarien Bank’s Reid Street and Paget branch on July 31st and get in the Cup Match spirit by purchasing traditional Cup Match ribbons and enjoy music, a selfie photo booth, free Ashley’s Lemonade, candy and Dutch Pops Popsicles. Clarien employees will also be raising funds internally to be donated directly to the Family Centre.”
