Darren Trickett juggles while collecting money for Cayman HospiceCare with his wife Danielle Coleman and daughter Alianne Trickett on Saturday.

They joined hundreds of Flag Day volunteers over the two-day fundraising effort at supermarkets, street corners, banks and hardware stores.

Now in its 18th year, the Flag Day event is one of the biggest fundraising and awareness campaigns for the hospice which offers end-of-life palliative care, free of charge, to residents of the Cayman Islands.

  1. I and my friend were collecting money for hospice once. What really shocked us was that after donations were handed to a person at a book store, she didn’t count it in our presence and entered the amount into a register or gave us a recept or asked to sign anywhere. For some reason we didn’t insist. I hope things have changes since than.

  2. Congratulatoions to Darren helping out Cayman Hospice on a busy weekend for him. My son Martin who has Type 1 diabetes took part in the Off The Beaten Track Race on Sunday in 87F temperatures, and near the end of his leg became disoriented due to low blood sugar. Out of nowhere Darren appeared and provided Martin with several nutrient drinks which enabled Martin to recover and finish his relay leg (the longest of the race). My sincere thanks to Darren as Martin could well have collapsed without his timely help.
