As a result, Publisher of this newspaper, Mr. Glenn Lall, had written to Minister of Home Affairs, Clement Rohee, seeking permission to host the fundraiser.
The fundraiser commenced on Thursday (March 19) after approval was granted by Minister Rohee.
Several persons have already contributed with the total donation submitted to this publication.
Persons desirous of contributing to this fundraiser, which is intended to cater to the educational needs of Crum-Ewing’s children, can do so by contacting our office on telephone number 225-8491 or visiting our Saffon Street, Charlestown, Georgetown, office.
