DMS Bank & Trust (DMS Bank), in partnership with Campbells Law Firm (Campbells), is pleased to announce its support for Jasmine Cayman through a joint donation of US$16,000, with future plans for a formal volunteer program.
Formerly known as Cayman Hospice Care, Jasmine Cayman is a hospice and palliative care centre that provides professional and diligent care free of charge to its patients. The facility is administered by a staff of nine and a rotating group of volunteers and its new facility was opened earlier this year by the Duchess of Cornwall.
Campbells formed links and began their support of Jasmine Cayman after losing a member of staff, Kirsten Houghton, earlier this year. Kirsten, a Senior Associate in Campbells’ Litigation, Insolvency & Restructuring Group was cared for, and spent her final days, at Jasmine Cayman.
Mark Goodman, Partner at Campbells, said, “Jasmine Cayman has touched the lives of so many in our community, including one of our own, and we are proud to join efforts with DMS Bank to give back to this remarkable institution.
DMS Bank and Campbells staff worked alongside Jasmine Cayman assisting them at the recent “Light up a Life” event. Since 1992 this global event has been organized by hospices all around the world. The event raises hundreds of thousands of dollars every year to fund higher quality hospice care for those seeking comfort in their final days.
As we move into the following year, and DMS Bank begins its series of staff volunteering events, it will again be supporting Jasmine Cayman at its annual Flag Day on February 21-22, one of the biggest fundraising and awareness campaigns that Jasmine Cayman runs to raise money for the facility.
Adam Rossiter, Managing Director of DMS Bank commented, “DMS Bank are honored to make a donation to Jasmine Cayman to support the amazing work that they carry out daily for those in need and we are delighted to do so alongside our friends at Campbells.”
