As part of the 25th anniversary celebrations the group recently donated $25,000 to the “Because of Jenna Trust”. Mr. Tom O'Sullivan, General Manager and Actuary of The Canada Life Assurance Company (Barbados Branch) and Mr. Gabriel Kelly, Chief Executive Officer of London Life and Casualty (Barbados) Corporation recently made the presentation to Mrs. Anna Clarke, Trustee of the “Because of Jenna Trust”.
