The Bermuda Environmental Sustainable Taskforce is hoping to fight off its financial troubles by collaborating with fellow environmental watchdog Greenrock.

President Stuart Hayward, who said he had been uplifted by the community reaction since BEST revealed its cash shortage at the end of last week, believes joining forces with Greenrock could help balance the books by sharing the burden of some expenses.

The two organisations have been in talks under the Centre on Philanthropy’s Collaboration Initiative, which aims to help cash-strapped groups pool their resources during the economic crisis.

Mr Hayward told The Royal Gazette: “There’s already a degree of collaboration but we are very willing to explore if there’s room for further opportunity.

“This is not something that non-profit organisations do very often in Bermuda, but the Centre on Philanthropy will assist in helping us understand what’s possible. There may be greater sharing we can do.”
