A spokesperson said, “On Saturday, November 14, the Bermuda Boys Brigade and the Church Girls’ Brigade worked together at their annual Christmas Car Wash, Baked Goods, Refreshments & Christmas Sale at St. Paul’s Church car park and church hall in Paget.

“The Boys’ Brigade and Church Girls’ Brigade members worked hard with their families and leaders to raise funds to help other Bermuda children.


“As a result, this year the Brigades were able to deposit $3,000 into The Family Centre Hardship BELCO account, so that families in great need can receive support to pay for their electricity bills.

“The Family Centre’s Executive Director, Dr Sandy De Silva, attended the inspection after the Enrolment and Rededication Service on November 22 to especially thank the boys and girls for donating their time and energy for the benefit of other people in the community.

“She told everyone how immensely grateful The Family Centre and all of their client families are for the tireless efforts and kindness of all the adults and young people that make this annual event happen.


“Our next car wash will be at our annual Valentine’s Fair on Saturday, February 13, 2021 from 9.00am to 4.00pm at St. Paul’s Church car park in Paget.

“The Church Girls’ Brigade meet on Thursday evenings and the Boys’ Brigade on Friday evenings in the Christian Education Centre.”
