July 29, 2020

Nadanja Bailey, Frank Simmons, Julia Kempe, David Thompson, Alistair Bennet and Jill Bosch de Noya are being celebrated as part of the HSBC “Local Heroes” and “Shop Bermuda” campaign.

A spokesperson said, “In June, HSBC Bermuda announced a joint “Local Heroes” and “Shop Bermuda” campaign initiative, designed to celebrate the spirit of Bermuda by providing support to our people and local businesses.

“The campaign’s primary focus was to shine a spotlight on individuals nominated by the public, whose actions during these extraordinary times deserved recognition. The nominations included but were not limited to carers, parents, employees, and essential workers.

Head of Wealth and Personal Banking, Tanya Bule shared, “It is with great pleasure that HSBC celebrates the following Local Heroes: “Nadanja Bailey was nominated for providing a continuous delivery service on behalf of a local grocery store during the lock-down period. His nominee commended him for “helping those who were being cautious and didn’t want to go into stores” and asked that we “celebrate a true Bermudian personality with the honor he deserves, not only for his enthusiasm for life, but for being a truly hardworking individual.”

“Frank Simmons was applauded for his tireless efforts in the Housekeeping department at King Edward Memorial Hospital. When he wasn’t hard at work he was busy helping his community in providing support where and when it was needed, engaging in activities which ranged from helping to fix broken doors to taking children to the beach or fishing”.

“Warwick Christ Church members Julia Kempe, David Thompson, Alistair Bennet and Jill Bosch de Noya were nominated for working every day since late March managing a meal preparation and delivery programme with an output of up to 230 meals each day. The four were nominated for “the enthusiasm and commitment to solving at least part of the daily needs of the neediest among us” and “doing whatever needs to be done to run the programme, as effectively as possible so that no one is refused a meal.”

“HSBC is invested in supporting the local economy and is delighted in being able to recognize and say thank you to these extraordinary, local HSBC COVID-19 Heroes.”
