Campbells, in partnership with DMS Bank & Trust (DMS Bank), is pleased to announce its support for Jasmine through a joint donation of US$16,000.00, with future plans for a formal volunteer programme.
Formerly known as Cayman HospiceCare, Jasmine is a hospice and palliative care centre that provides specialist and comprehensive hospice care, free of charge, to all its patients. The new purpose-built facility is administered by a staff of nine and a rotating group of volunteers and was opened earlier this year by the Duchess of Cornwall.
Campbells formed links and began its support of Jasmine after losing a beloved 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.
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 organisation.”
Employees from both firms worked alongside Jasmine, assisting them at the recent “Light up a Life” event. Since 1992 this global event has been organised 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.
Adam Rossiter, Managing Director of DMS Bank, commented, “DMS Bank is honoured to make a donation to Jasmine 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.”
