Football in Bermuda - The Affiliates of the Bermuda Football Association, in collaboration with the Charles E. and Lesley Marshall Family Foundation, have raised $23,000.00 to donate to the Bermuda Emergency Fund, with seven Sports Club Programmes to receive a total of $105,000.00
The Football Affiliates in conjunction with this Foundation had discussions on how they could possibly assist the In Need Bermuda Communities during this unprecedented Covid – 19 Pandemic time in Bermuda and came up with the idea to collectively do a fundraiser, asking the individual clubs, along with the Foundation to make donations to the fund.
The Foundation, whom for the past few seasons have made donations to the Affiliates to assist them with their basic necessities, like football equipment, sports uniforms, and registration requirements, immediately committed to a very generous donation.
The Football Clubs working closely together despite their resources being very limited at this time, as a direct result of the Covid – 19 pandemic, were still able to manage to find a way to make a donation to this very worthy cause.
