The Bank of Nova Scotia on Thursday last handed over a cheque to the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club (RHTY&SC), confirming the Bank’s renewal of sponsorship of the Club’s Pro-Education Programmes.
Valued at $155,000, it covers the Bank’s contribution to the club’s 13th Annual Review Magazine, 23rd Annual Awards Ceremony scheduled for April and the 5th Annual Scotia Bank Tribute to Teachers Programme.
Long serving Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster expressed gratitude to the Bank of Nova Scotia and its Management especially Marketing Manager Ms. Jennifer Cipriani for their continued support. He disclosed that in 2013, special emphasis would be placed on education.

The Annual Awards Ceremony would be held in April with 40 members receiving over $2M in trophies and prizes while the 13th Annual 48-page Review Magazine would be published in late April.
