One of Guyana’s rising Non Governmental Organisations (NGO) the Guyana Committee of Services (GCOS) recently made a monetary donation to the Eastveldt Football Club aimed towards helping the club to ride the waves of challenge during these challenging times.
Making the presentation on behalf of the committee was member, Leslie Blacks to Coach of the club’s Under-19 team, Clive Smith at the club’s ground located in East Ruimveldt. Also present were Owner of Payless Variety Store Joseph Ramkumar, Reginald Bichan and Linden ‘Jumbie’ Jones.
Blacks in brief comments said that the GCOS was very delighted to be making the contribution to the club, stating that they have been supporting many sports ever since their establishment.
“In this instance, the presentation to Eastveldt FC, which is not the first time we are assisting them, was towards helping them to procure uniforms which we all know is always needed. Our entity is a non-profit organisation primarily tasked with the responsibility of raising funds which is then utalised to support athletes, teams as well as other individuals.
Among the persons that we have assisted since being formed some three years ago, include boxer, Clive Atwell who was the first to benefit, veteran and multi-talented athlete Alisha Fortune and Aliann Pompey who organises an annual Invitational Meet that attracts some of the best athletes from around the region and world.”
Meanwhile, GCOS in association with Payless Variety Store, Star Party Rentals and Guybisco recently distributed hampers to members of the public outside their Vreed-en-Hoop Store. The Committee said that the hampers were a means to assist persons during these challenging times brought on by the coronavirus, noting that many persons and families are in need.
