Walkers assists Brac

The Walkers Charitable Foundation has made a donation of US$100,000 to the Cayman Islands National Recovery Fund to assist the Cayman Brac recovery effort.

Grant Stein, global managing partner at Walkers and a Trustee of the Walkers Charitable Foundation, said: ‘Many of our staff here at Walkers originally hail from Cayman Brac and have family members there, so we are glad to be able to assist with the recovery effort in any way that we can.’

Mr. Mark Laskin, Executive Director of the Cayman Islands National Recovery Fund, said: “So many of the people affected by Hurricane Paloma were elderly or infirm and the need in the Brac is quite substantial, perhaps even more so – on a per capita basis – than Grand Cayman after Ivan. In a small community like Cayman it is crucial that companies, such as Walkers has so generously done, are able to be responsible and responsive corporate community citizens”
