Joshua Bate Trading Bermuda Ltd. [Bate’s] and Deloitte teamed up for the annual Sleep in Heavenly Peace Bunk Building Day, assembling 18 bunks to support families in need.

Teara Tomas, Bate’s Bermuda Chapter President said, “At the Joshua Bate Trading Bermuda Ltd. showroom, Deloitte and Bate’s teamed up for the annual Sleep in Heavenly Peace Bunk Building Day.

“Bate’s started the Bermuda chapter back in 2019 and they have delivered over 50 bunks to families and children in need. With the help of organizations like The Family Centre and donations made to the Sleep in Heavenly Peace Foundation, they are able to carry out these builds regularly as the demand is still there on the island.

“Every year we carry out a Build Day where we build, assemble and deliver top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need. We fully believe that a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional, and mental support that a child needs. When it was brought to our attention that the need for beds went far within our own neighborhoods, we stepped up and took initiative.

“It was great to work with the Deloitte team, who sponsored the lumber for this years build. We were able to successfully assemble 18 bunks, which will start going out into the community in the coming weeks. Big shoutout to Deloitte for allowing their employees to come spend a few hours with us. Everyone worked very hard and made the process seamless.”
