The sponsorship aids the Pines in their efforts to support the elderly and expand on their existing facility.

Although great improvements have been made to the Pines after Hurricane Ivan, repairs to the facility are still greatly needed and are dependent on financial support from the working community.

‘We are thankful and grateful for the continued kindness and support of Butterfield. Their generous donation will greatly assist in the repairs and continued renovations of our facility,’ said the Sue Nicholson the Pines manager.

She said the Pines offers four main services to the elderly community including residential care, day care, respite care and the assisted living programmes.

‘At Butterfield we recognise how essential it is to support good quality health care organisations in our community, and we hope our contribution to the Pines will be one that directly improves the lives of the elderly and chronically ill,’ said Rebecca Ebanks, Butterfield Bank representative.

The Pines is a non-profit and charitable organisation that was established to provide residential accommodation for the elderly.

It was formally opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1983 as a retirement home, to meet the needs of independent elderly citizens during their retirement.
