– Schools, Churches and Organisations benefit
The Eight Cricket teams of Guyana’s leading youth and sports Club, the Rose Hall Town
Youth and Sports Club on Sunday last launched the RHTY&SC Patron’s Community Fund with the main objective of making a positive difference in the lives of others. The Fund was created by the Club after it received a $1M donation from its Patron, President David Granger in early April. The Management of the Club along with the cricket teams decided to use a great portion of the donation to make a positive difference in the lives of others. The greatest achievement of the RHTY&SC over the years is its ability to assist other Clubs, NGO’s to fulfil their mandate with the main objective to get youths to Say NO to Drugs, Suicide, Drugs, Alcohol and Yes to Life, Education and Sports.
Financial donations of $50,000 were given to the Rose Hall Town Nursery School, Rose Hall Town Primary School and ST. Joseph Anglican Church of Port Mourant. Receiving financial donations were the Maranatha Faith Ministries ($25,0000), a promising athlete Ms. McKenzie who received $10,000, while the Mission Chapel Church Day Care Center of New Amsterdam received $15,000 towards replacing a microwave which was stolen from its office. Others benefitting was a handicap resident of Rose Hall Town who received a Wheel-chair and a large box of adult pampers, the NO. 58 Shining Star Club who received trophies, medals, Man of the Finals Prize and 100 small hand towels towards hosting of a fund raising 20/20 cricket tournament and the Felix Austin Police College who received five trophies and a collection of medals for an upcoming Day of Sports.
A donation was also made to NO. 53 Sports Complex, who received a trophy, volleyball net, two basketballs and one hundred hand towels, while the Mibicuri Police Station of Black Bush Polder received three large trophies and medals to host an Anti-suicide Cricket Tournament for junior teams.
The RHTY&SC also contributed trophies, medals and a bicycle to the East Bank Football Association for the hosting of a seven-a-side female football tournament. The Mayor and town Council of Rose Hall received a quantity of cleaning equipment to assist in the cleaning up of the township. The donations were made based on requests to the Club’s Outreach Committee and the Cricket teams agreed to the requests under the Patron’s Fund Project. Foster urged the schools, churches, individuals, clubs to use the donations for their intended purpose and most importantly to work harder to make a positive difference.
The Club Secretary/CEO was full of praise for the positive impact that President Granger has had on the RHTY&SC since sworn in as Club Patron on the 3rd of February, 2016 and announced that the Patron’s Fund would assist other organisations annually during the Award Ceremony.
Club President Keith Foster, who handed over the donations, stated that assisting others is one of the main hallmarks of his organisation as it strongly believes in giving back to society. Prime Minister and acting President Moses Nagamootoo congratulated the Club on the initiative of assisting other Clubs and on such a large scale. The Patron’s Fund is managed by the Farfan and Mendes Under-15, Bakewell Under-17 and Second Division, Pepsi Under-19 and Intermediate, Metro Females and Gizmos and Gadgets Under-21 and First Division Cricket teams along with the Club’s Over-35 Section.
