Hamilton Lions pump up the cash for local charities

Two charities reaped $11,000 each thanks to an enduring fundraiser by Hamilton Lions Club.

The proceeds from the club’s 53rd annual Gas-O-Rama and raffle draw were presented to Vision Bermuda and the Bermuda Zoological Society.

Marlene Christopher, president of Hamilton Lions Club, thanked the Terceira family for the use of Terceira’s Rubis Service Station on North Shore in Smith’s this February.

As part of the event, club members volunteered to pump gas for the day to earn a portion of the day’s earnings plus tips for charity.

Ms Christopher said the family kept a promise “made by their forefather, Malcolm Ralph Terceira, 53 years ago to Lion Teddy Chapman to partner with the Hamilton Lions Club in the holding of what has now become its annual Hamilton Lions Club Gas-O-Rama”.

Michael Terceira, an owner of the station, said: “The event was a resounding success, and we are happy to have supported Vision Bermuda, a cause near and dear to the Lions Clubs, and the Bermuda Zoological Society, our neighbours down in Flatts.

“Continuing to honour the legacies of Malcolm Ralph Terceira and Teddy Chapman is our great privilege and we hope to continue for many years to come.”

Theresa Hall, executive director of Vision Bermuda, said the club’s continuing help went towards “an accessible, functional, modern national facility building to serve the needs of individuals with vision impairments”.

“When Beacon House opens later this year, we will offer a full range of specialist services supporting people of any age with low or no vision and Beacon House, just like its name, will become a beacon of hope and opportunity.”

Colin Brown, president of the Bermuda Zoological Society, said the donations would support “our Stempel Foundation BZS Schools Programme, which is taught in the BZS education classrooms at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo and provide experiential, hands-on learning opportunities to Bermuda school students”.
