The Legacy Walkaway
A Legacy Brick is a wonderful way to pay tribute, honour special people in your life or to recognize special memories and milestones. Each brick can be purchased for $1000 and customized with a personal message, tribute, important dates, names of family members, or even a special thank you. The 4” x 8” brick allows for 3 lines of text, approximately 13 characters per line (including spaces).

A support group for those affected by heart problems will cease operations after almost two decades.
In a final gesture of goodwill, the Cardiac Resource Group donated more than $3,000 of its funds to the Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Trust, the Agape House hospice and the Bermuda Red Cross.
“Unfortunately, our membership has been dwindling over the years due to death, our members’ declining health, caring for family and personal obligations,” Doris Bailey said on behalf of the group.
“Reluctantly, the group decided to cease operations and donate the funds in our account to charity.”
Ms Bailey said they chose to donate to BHCT by buying a brick on the Legacy Walkway, while Agape House was selected because of the “valuable services they provide to terminal patients”.
“When we decided to fold, the members wanted to share the funds instead of giving all to one charity. Based on the account balance we wanted to make a minimal donation of $1,000 which is why we chose three charities.”
“Bermuda Red Cross was chosen because they are usually the first to respond to local and global tragedy. CRG feels that all three are very worthy charities,” she added.
CRG started as a support group for those who had experienced heart problems, their families and their caregivers, as well as anyone interested in avoiding heart disease. It was a non-profit organisation, but not a registered charity.
“We never did any public fundraising: the money in our account was donations from individual members when we had meetings,” Ms Bailey said.
The group gave $1,051 to BCHT, and $1,054 each to Agape House Hospice and the Bermuda Red Cross.
Ms Bailey added: “It is with a very heavy heart and deep regret that CRG will cease to exist, but we have vowed to be supportive of each other and stay in touch as much as we can.”
