Conyers Staff Dress Down for Worthy Cause

May 2009

Cayman Islands law firm Conyers Dill & Pearman (“Conyers”) has started a new initiative to benefit local primary schools, which sees partners and staff at the law firm dress down in representative school colours while school students dress up in professional attire for a day.

The initiative follows the success of last month’s dress down day fundraiser for five-year-old Red Bay Primary student Nathan Bendo-Carias, who is in need of open heart surgery to treat a serious heart condition.

On this occasion, the Conyers Community Program held two separate dress down days which saw donations towards the purchase of books to support the Prospect Primary School reading program, and towards the PTA program at John A. Cumber Primary School in West Bay.

Partners and staff wore yellow to support Prospect Primary School, and then dressed in blue on a separate day in support of the John A. Cumber Primary School.

Keisha Syms, HR Manager of Conyers’ Cayman Islands office, commented: “This initiative allows our staff to support education and development in the Cayman Islands, while simultaneously giving students a taste of the professional world, in preparation of their entry into working life in years to come. I am delighted our staff are so pleased to participate in this initiative.”

In addition to its support of local education, Conyers Community is also actively involved in a number of local charities.
