In response to an article featured in this newspaper on Christmas day about Bridgette Dundas and her family, employees of Digicel Guyana braved the rains on Sunday, to spread Christmas cheer to the Leopold street clan, which includes four sets of twins.
What started out as a surprise for the family of eleven, soon turned into a treat for the entire neighbourhood.
In a bid to brighten Christmas for the household, the cellular phone company distributed boxes of goodies to Dundas and her children.
The gifts included a delicious spread of mouth watering dishes, groceries, toys, smart phones and gift vouchers.
As news of Digicel’s surprise visit spread through the community, scores of children flocked the house, overwhelming the Dundas’ Lot 102 Leopold Street, Georgetown residence.
The organizing team which brought goodies for the neighbourhood youngsters, comprised Head of Marketing, Ms. Jacqueline James; Public Relations Officer, Ms. Vidya Sanichara; Sponsorship and Events Manager, Mr. Gavin Hope and Marketing Manager, Mr. Ramesh Rupchand.
“We know that Christmas day has passed but we still believe it is fitting since the festive season is still on that you and your family should enjoy the holiday,” Ms. James said as she presented the gifts to Dundas.
Moved to tears and almost speechless, Mrs. Dundas, 40, thanked employees of the Cellular Company for their thoughtful gesture.
Ms Dundas told this publication that she is very grateful to Digicel for making the lives of her family comfortable during this festive season, adding that the feeling was overwhelming when she saw all the bags that filled her house on Sunday.
In the Kaieteur News article, Dundas had explained that traditional Christmas preparations were squashed after her husband fell ill after his involvement in an accident.
Mrs. Dundas has also been ill since Christmas Eve. Doctors diagnosed traces of Leptospirosis in her blood stream.
Mrs. Dundas received several bags of groceries, smart phones and a total of eleven gift vouchers redeemable at Ashmins Trading, Giftland Office Max, Bounty Supermarket and JR Burgers.
Dundas’s neighbours also received gifts and tokens.
The presentation was made under the “Brighten Someone’s Christmas” promotion.
