Mr. Bazelmans’ son-in-law, Ian Paget-Brown and representatives of Rawlinson and Hunter presented a $60,000 cheque to hospice care workers in recognition of their work.

‘I am certain Bill would have preferred spending his final days in his beloved Islands and would be delighted to know that these funds have been presented to such an outstanding organisation that touches lives at the end of life,’ said Mr. Paget-Brown.

Mr. Bazelmans died 13 years ago in Virginia in the United States before hospice services were available in the Cayman Islands.

The donated money will be used to ensure that the terminally ill on the Islands receive the quality care they deserve.

‘This incredibly generous donation is most appreciated by everyone at Cayman HospiceCare,’ said fund raising manager Jennifer Grant-McCarthy.

‘Bill Bazelmans’ life ended before this valuable service was available in the Cayman Islands. This donation in his memory will be used to ensure our hospice and palliative care services remain available, free of charge, to any person living with life limiting illness in the Cayman Islands,’ she said.

The donation is the final distribution from a charitable trust established by the Paget-Brown law practice in connection with a major securitisation transaction of which Rawlinson and Hunter acted as trustees.
