STAFF and students at Tomorrow’s Voices-Bermuda
Autism Early Intervention Center have been given a much needed boost  via a donated van from Bermuda Health Care and Health Center.

The van, which will be used to transport Tomorrow’s Voices’ clients and staff around the Island, was previously used to distribute health educational items for the cancer charity.

As their needs grew greater, Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre decided to purchase a larger vehicle.

Financial planning allowed the Centre to make provisions for the purchase of a replacement vehicle this year.

“The purchase of a new vehicle is quite prohibitive for most charities” says Tara Soares, Executive Director Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre.

“Funds raised through events and sponsorship are usually directed to support the Charities programmes, leaving expenses such as a new vehicle hard to fund.”

Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre, knowing its own need as a charity, took the decision to donate their former van to assist another charity.

With assistance from The Centre on Philanthropy, Bermuda Cancer and Health Center was put in touch with Tomorrow’s Voices, who as a new charity were able to exhibit the need for a vehicle.
