The spirit of giving

Employees at UBS Fund Services (Cayman) Ltd. helped make the holidays a little brighter for those in need. When Elizabeth Gaio and Diane Merren-Welds came up with the idea of purchasing Christmas hampers, they sent out a company email to see if others would be interested. ‘Nearly half the staff responded,’ said Gaio. Thanks to their efforts, 37 hampers were distributed to those less fortunate through the Department of Children and Family Services along with a $400 donation. The hampers included a turkey or ham, a 2-litre drink, rolls and pumpkin pie. ‘I’ve seen the situation on the island and the work Social Services is doing,’ said Gaio. ‘We just wanted to contribute.’ Photo: Jenny Gabruch
