The first of ten “Fuelling 4 a Cause” tag days, raising cash for charity, has been held by St. George’s Preparatory School PTA.

The “Fuelling 4 a Cause” campaign began last summer to celebrate RUBiS’ 10th anniversary of operations in Bermuda, and will continue throughout this year with more tag days.

The fundraiser began with an invitation to 24 local charities and not-for-profit organisations to participate in a photo contest.

Twelve winners of the contest now appear in the RUBiS Calendar. However, the remaining 12 charities have been offered the opportunity to hold a special tag day during 2017 at one or more of the RUBiS service stations in order to raise funds for their respective organisation.

The Bermuda Economic Development Corporation [BEDC], along with title sponsor RUBIS Energy Bermuda, will host the second annual St. George’s Marine Expo on Sunday, April 23 from 11.00am to 6.00pm.

The Marine Expo 2017 is an event “created to showcase the many businesses, organizations and opportunities involved in Bermuda’s Marine Industry.”

The Expo encourages activity in the town by targeting boating and marine enthusiasts from across the island, with a small committee consisting of representatives from BEDC, Bermuda Yacht Services and the Corporations of St George working hard to make this event an annual success.

BEDC Economic Development Officer for St. George’s Ray Lambert said, “Last year’s Event was a huge success. We had 52 Businesses and organizations participate, and over 3,000 attendees. We really appreciate the support of our sponsors and are very encouraged by the interest shown thus far by the marine community.

“Ordnance Island is an excellent venue for the Expo and we look forward to making this another great event.”

RUBiS is pleased to report on the overwhelming success of the “Fuelling 4 a Cause” competition which gave twelve (12) lucky charities over $32,000 in total in donations, and an additional twelve charities the opportunity to host tag days through the RUBiS network of service stations.

The Fuelling 4 a Cause concept was initiated to celebrate RUBiS’ 10th Anniversary of operations in Bermuda. Between September and November 2016, RUBiS donated 5¢/gallon of fuel sold to twelve (12) selected charities, who were the finalists of a photo contest held earlier in the year to see who would be featured in the 2017 RUBiS Calendar.

Whenever a customer made a fuel transaction during the above dates, the RUBiS Rewards machine issued a special document which contained a unique code to enable the customer to vote for their favourite charity. Customers were directed by the document to visit the RUBiS website and use the unique code on the document to validate and cast their vote.

At the end of the promotion, the total funds raised were then split based on the number of votes each charity received. Each charity was on hand to accept their awards at a presentation hosted by RUBiS on Friday, January 27th, 2017.

The charities included were; Bermuda Diabetes Association, Bermuda Olympic Association, Bermuda Red Cross, Bermuda Sloop Foundation, Bermuda Zoological Society, The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bermuda, The Coalition for the Protection of Children, The Duke of Edinburgh International Bermuda, SCARS, St. John’s Ambulance Bermuda, Warwick Academy and WindReach.

Donations from Mrs. Diana Bergquist, the Stempel Foundation, Clarien Bank, Somers Isle Shipping and RUBiS.

A long-time benefactor of BZS’s free conservation education programmes, Mrs. Bergquist kindly decided to make a considerable donation towards the purchase of a new boat for the BZS to celebrate her birthday this year.

Her gift was matched by the family’s Stempel Foundation allowing the BZS to purchase the custom-built Beachcat from Florida and have it delivered to the island.

In addition, Clarien Bank generously gave a large financial donation for the additional equipment needed for the boat, Somers Isle Shipping provided in-kind support by assisting with the importation of the vessel, and RUBiS continued their annual commitment by donating fuel for the MV Endurance, the BAMZ bus and added Callista.

Bermuda Karting Club kicks off its season on Sunday brimming with optimism thanks to a new sponsor and more drivers ready to tear up the St David’s track.

The first race day will be preceded by the official ribbon-cutting of the new Rubis Southside Raceway, a $25,000 two-year deal that is set to bolster the sport further.

“It’s a big deal for us,” Scott “Skitchy” Barnes, the club president, said. “It’s the first time the track has had a major sponsor and the first time the club has had a major sponsor.”

The ceremony will add a little extra pizazz to a full day’s racing across six classes, including the new LO206 Senior Class 40+ (local option). The action — the first of 15 scheduled race days — also features two heats with the motorbikes from the Bermuda Motorcycle Club.

Solutions could range from maximizing the utilization of existing power sources to the development of new methods for producing sustainable energy, or they could address conservation through simple methods of cutting back on power consumption through conservation or green building methods.
