LIVEWIRE makes donation to Coomacka CDC
- several sport activities for Weekend Festival
Coordinator of the upcoming Coomacka Weekend Festival, LIVEWIRE Productions on Sunday presented some Mercury vapour lamps to the village’s Community Development Council (CDC) ahead of the upcoming CARICOM Weekend event.
The donation from LIVEWIRE Productions followed a request from President of
the Coomacka CDC, Allister Fraser for items pivotal to the development of the Coomacka Community Centre Ground, which is the main host venue for outdoor sporting and cultural events in the former mining area.
The Mercury vapour lamps will increase access to the facility during the night. Residents of Coomacka are perceived to be very sports-oriented, but were limited to daylight activities owed to the previous absence of the lights, which they now have.
LIVEWIRE Productions also donated a water tank to the CDC, which will allow for use of the indoor sanitation facilities.
Coomacka has in the past produced a number of outstanding sports personalities among which is Onan Thom, who represented Guyana at the Olympics and several other national swimmers including Schenelle Bremner.
The upcoming Coomacka Weekend Festival billed for June 30-July 1 will feature several indoor and outdoor sporting activities, including football, cycling, dominoes and a road-race from Linden to Coomacka.
Other activities include overnight camping, Demerara River Tours, speedboat rides, hiking, fishing, cooking competitions and a fashion show. The Guyana Tourism Authority has sanctioned the Coomacka Weekend Festival.
