News Release PAGET, Bermuda – Bermuda HealthCare Services [BHCS] celebrated the spirit of the season on Saturday, [Dec 16] by giving away 150 turkeys, with the first 100 turkeys given to patients, 40 going members of the general public, with the remaining given to staff.

The idea for the giveaway began 11 years ago, when BHCS and Brown-Darrell Clinic cancelled their annual Christmas Party and decided to distribute turkeys to those in need, giving away over 1000 free turkeys across the island since that time.

Founder and Executive Chair Dr Ewart Brown remarked, “It is a very special pleasure to give back to our community especially at the holiday season. We strive to help make Christmas a bit brighter and a bit less stressful for families during these difficult economic times.

“Whether through our Annual Turkey Give-Away, sponsorship of elite Bermudian athletes, our support of PHC or our scholarships to medical students, it is our intention to support our community and through our example encourage wider corporate support for the people of Bermuda.”
