The Ranfurly Homes for Children is a foundation that Cole’s of Nassau is more than proud to assist; having been a safe haven for thousands of Bahamian children since 1956. The idea for the home originated as a result of a mid 1950's fire in downtown Nassau. When Lady Hermoine Ranfurly, wife of the then Governor General, discovered a group of homeless children sleeping in cardboard boxes in buildings and alleys. Just six months after securing a spacious property on Mackey St., the patrons and caregivers at Ranfurly welcomed the first residents into their full time care. Since then, the Home provides a safe, structured environment for children who have been orphaned, abused, neglected or abandoned.

The proceeds collected from the event will aid in maintaining the efforts set out by The Ranfurly Homes for Children and of Lady Hermoine Ranfurly herself. Without support provided by such charity events, the functionality of the Home would be severely affected and its mission even more difficult to uphold. To ensure the future success of the home, Cole’s of Nassau & Morley for Men welcome you to join them in their philanthropic efforts to support Lady Ranfurly’s legacy of laughter, love and kindness.
