NRF settles into new home

The Cayman Islands National Recovery Fund held its first official function in its new home Monday, 27 March, to thank the National Trust for the use of the premises.

The old National Trust House underwent extensive renovations to repair Hurricane Ivan damage and the NRF will be staying there rent-free for the next two years. The new office, located off Eastern Avenue, opened for business 20 March.

Mark Laskin, executive director of the NRF, described the fund’s new home.

‘It’s a fantastic new facility. It serves the dual purpose of not only giving us a home for a short time but restoring to its original condition the National Trust House and ensuring its long-term future.

‘It’s a win-win situation for everybody. We’re especially appreciative of the contribution of Butterfield Bank and many others who assisted in the renovation with their contributions,’ he said.
