Law firm Campbells and DMS Bank & Trust have donated US$16,000 to Jasmine, with future plans for a formal volunteer programme.
“Jasmine Cayman has touched the lives of so many in our community, including one of our own, and we are proud to join efforts with DMS Bank to give back to this remarkable institution,” said Mark Goodman, partner at Campbells.
Adam Rossiter, managing director of DMS Bank, said: “DMS Bank is honoured to make a donation to Jasmine to support the amazing work that they carry out daily for those in need and we are delighted to do so alongside our friends at Campbells.”
Campbells formed links and began their support of Jasmine after losing a member of staff, Kirsten Houghton, earlier this year. Houghton, a senior associate in Campbells’ litigation, insolvency and restructuring group, was cared for, and spent her final days, at the hospice.
To raise the funds, DMS Bank and Campbells staff assisted Jasmine Cayman at the “Light up a Life” event.
Since 1992 this global event has been organised by hospices around the world.
The event raises hundreds of thousands of dollars every year to fund higher quality hospice care for those seeking comfort in their final days.
As DMS Bank begins its series of staff volunteering events, it will again be supporting Jasmine at its annual flag day on 21-22 Feb., one of the biggest fundraising and awareness campaigns that Jasmine runs to raise money for the facility.
