The cricket teams of the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club (RHTY&SC) since 1990 have organised a series of programmes during the festive season each year with the main aim of making a positive difference in the lives of children, the elderly and less fortunate.
The teams during the period December 5 – 22, 2013 hosted a series of activities under the multi-million dollars Christmas programme.
The programmes were organised by the Rose Hall Town Farfan & Mendes
Under-15, Bakewell Under-17 and Second Division, Pepsi Under-19 and Intermediate, Gizmos & Gadgets First Division and Under-21 and Metro Female Teams.
Among the major programmes was a Christmas party for 500 less fortunate children, a joint project with the Radio Needy Children Fund. Each child received a warm meal, liquid refreshments, a special Christmas goodies bag and a toy each.
Three thousand children across the Ancient County also received toys from the cricket teams via their churches, Non Governmental Agencies, schools and cricket clubs while 300 food hampers were shared out to less fortunate families.
A total of 120 senior citizens on Sunday December 22, were also treated at a luncheon and also received special food hampers and collection of items including cosmetics valued of $8,000 each.
Hundreds were also provided with warm meals during the general feeding programme while the teams also sponsored several Christmas related Television Programmes on DTV-8. Hundreds of less fortunate youths and families also received $2M worth of clothing, footwear, educational and hygiene kits.
Staff members of the Rose Hall Town Post Office and several members of the Guyana Police Force also received hampers. All members of the Club’s First Division Team each received a special collection of gifts.
The teams also provided toys to the Berbice Cricket Board for distribution to the Eden Children Home and those in the Children Ward of the New Amsterdam Hospital. The Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club also sponsored a series of Christmas programmes for its founder the St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Youth Group which include the 2013 Christmas Concert, gifts for every church member, toys for every Catholic child in Region 6, Youths get together and lunch and toys for orphans at the Port Mourant Canaan Children Home.
The St. Francis Youth Club also benefitted from sponsorship of prizes including a bicycle and educational materials for an Essay competition.
Club Secretary/CEO, Hilbert Foster remarked that this year’s programmes was the largest in the history of the Club and was the result of the hard work of club executive and members of the different cricket teams.
Foster disclosed that the entity strongly believes in making positive differences in the lives of others and noted that the Club is the only of its kind in Guyana that spearheads such large scale charity programmes. The RHTY&SC cricketers are taught via these programmes that all sportsmen and women must make contributions to the development of society and those less fortunate than themselves.
