News Release: SOLDIER’S NETWORK – On December 15th the Royal Bermuda Regiment Association held its 1st Annual Beer Call & Food Drive at the Bermuda Craft Brewery, #2 Hermitage Road.

Association President Peter Aldrich stated: “For a spur of the moment event, it was well supported, and we collecteda good quantity of non-perishable food items and a respectable amount of cash for The Eliza DoLittle Society.”

The RBRA bolstered the donated goods with another $500 of non-perishable items. Mr Aldrich added “We think that the overall value of the goods and cash is probably just over $1000.”

Claire Mello, of the Eliza DoLittle Society welcomed the donation and stated: “The Eliza Dolittle Society believes that providing a bag a groceries each week to people facing hunger, is about more than food. It’s also about reducing the cost of food and the anxiety associated with food insecurity. The donation of food from the Royal Bermuda RegimentAssociation will help ensure that our clients will have food to put on their table this holiday season.”

The RBRA would like to thank the management of the Bermuda Craft Brewery and especially Ndavyah Williams who works at the Brewery for the inspiration to hold the event at there. Ndavyah an RBR soldier and RBRA member.

2nd Vice President Gavin Rayner who managed the door prizes for the evening stated: “It was great to see all our members enjoying themselves and the venue was perfect. We are definitely looking at making this event bigger and better for next year!”
