Video: Time Lapse Of Donations Being Loaded

September 9, 2019

Bermuda volunteers and the Royal Navy combined forces to transport and load tonnes of aid onto the HMS Protector on Sunday, after people showed an outpouring of support for the hurricane ravaged Bahamas.

After a call was made on Friday for people to donate items for the Bahamas, the Seventh-Day Adventist Church on King Street was filled with new items, with some 200 tonnes of goods donated, ranging from building supplies, cleaning supplies, to cases of water, food, diapers and much more.

Local truckers volunteered their time to transport the goods to the ship on Front Street, with lines of trucks seen waiting to drop off the supplies.

The goods are being transported on the Royal Navy’s ship HMS Protector, and speaking at yesterday’s press conference, a representative of the HMS Protector said, “It has been inspiring to see the outpouring of help and aid that has been loaded on board my ship here in Bermuda. The spirit of this island in helping another island, is just amazing. So we are humbled to have been a part of this mission.”

The HMS Protector filmed the ship being loaded and created the time lapse below, saying, “A brief time lapse of the lengthy operation to load our hold with aid from Bermuda over the weekend. A great team effort from all the Bermudian volunteers, our Royal Navy sailors and Royal Marines.”
