As part of its Employee of the Quarter scheme Conyers Dill & Pearman has donated CI$2,500 to Cayman Hospice Care, The Pines, Meals on Wheels, Adventist Development and Relief Agency, Cayman, and the Cayman Islands Cancer Society.
The donation, shared evenly among the charities, was made on behalf of Tanya Jefferson. Ms Jefferson was selected as the recipient of Conyers’ Employee of the Quarter Award for the Third Quarter of 2010 based on her performance, team spirit and work ethic. The award recognises the hard work of Conyers employees but also offers the extra incentive of allowing them to give back to the community through donations to charities of their choice.
“There is a special place in my heart for the elderly and I wanted to do something good for them – I feel that they need special care. I was very pleased to have my hard work recognised by my co-workers”, said Ms Jefferson.
Conyers’ Human Resources Manager Keisha Syms explained: “Conyers’ employees were asked to nominate colleagues for the award and Tanya won a high level of acclaim for her team spirit and desire to provide the best service to both our internal and external clients.” Conyers is actively involved in a number of local charities and supports educational programmes which serve to benefit the local community.
In a separate donation the firm presented CI$3,500 to the National Council of Voluntary Organisations for gifts and a Christmas party for children at the Nadine Andreas Residential Foster Home and at Miss Nadine’s Pre-School.
Katherine McLaughlin, Community Education Officer at Conyers, said: “Every child deserves to have a joyful Christmas, and Conyers is very pleased to be a part of giving them the opportunity to experience the fun and festivity associated with this happy holiday season”.
“The NCVO is very grateful for the support of Conyers in providing the children in our care with an opportunity to enjoy Christmas in the same way that many other children take for granted. Without the support of local companies such as Conyers, we would be unable to provide the level of care that our children deserve,” said Janice Wilson, CEO of the NCVO.
