“Care to Share”, a special initiative developed by leading caregiving provider Atlantic Caregiving Ltd saw students from Purvis Primary School, Bermuda Institute, Warwick Academy and Saltus Grammar School create the cards for the second year in a row.

Staff from Atlantic Caregiving then packaged the cards and delivered them to Meals on Wheels so they would reach the charity’s clients, most of whom are senior citizens.

Dawn Zuill, founder and owner of Atlantic Caregiving, has been inspired by both children and seniors through her career and this was the driving force behind the founding of the service.

Mrs. Zuill said: “It is my belief that our children can grow and benefit hugely by engaging with seniors and the vulnerable in our community in a caring and compassionate way.

“It has been wonderful to see this event become such a well-received tradition and we thank all of the schools who participated as well as our team who put it all together. We look forward to expanding our efforts in more shared events that can see our youth engaging in meaningful ways with seniors and our community!”
