As a follow-up to her act of kindness to the Demerara Cricket Club and the Malteenoes Sports Club, former national middle distance star Waveney Benn continued her contribution to sports development in Guyana by making another presentation of equipment Monday.
This time, Three Peat Promotions, co-ordinators of the Guinness Cage Competition received a quantity of footballs from Benn, at her residence in North Ruimveldt.
Receiving the balls on behalf of the Promotion was Angel Stuart, a representative of the entity.
Benn, speaking at the occasion said the gift was made possible through the efforts of UK-based Software firm 1E and its staff, who all contributed to the procurement of the balls.
Benn, who dominated the local scene in the late seventies and early eighties, before migrating to the UK, returns annually to give back to young athletes, but on this trip ventured into other disciplines, namely cricket and football.
Benn, many may recall, represented Guyana with distinction at the regional level in the seventies and early eighties, before leaving for England.
This is not the first time that the UK Software firm 1E has supported Benn in her endeavour and according to her CEO Sumir Karayi expressed delight in extending his goodwill once again.
Benn also acknowledged the support given by her fellow staffers, who she revealed did not hesitate when asked for their support.
“I have an excellent relationship with my Company and Staffers and I would like to extend my gratitude to all of them, especially to Mr. Karayi and Denise Shillito, we are a family.”
She thanked the Software firm for its timely support and wished that the relationship grow from strength to strength in the future.
The CEO she said was very supportive of her venture and promised to continue assisting her, especially knowing that it is for a good cause.
Stuart in response thanked Benn on behalf of Three Peat Promotions and urged that the two parties remain committed to the development of sports in Guyana.
