Firefighters get a treat

The Royal Bank of Canada Trust Company (Cayman) Limited sponsored a Christmas treat for the firemen at the George Town Fire Station this week.

The Trust Company arranged for children to sing Christmas carols for the firemen, and also gave them a well deserved supply of goodies.

‘The staff at Royal Bank of Canada Trust Company believe that it is better to give than to receive and that strong bonds can be built from sharing in the face of adversity,’ said a company spokesperson, ‘In the aftermath of Hurricane Ivan, we wished to recognise the local community partners who tirelessly provided support and care to those in need.’

‘We always appreciate carols,’ said acting fire chief Roy Grant, ‘and we also appreciate the gifts. But we especially appreciate the recognition of the work we do.’

To show their appreciation, the firemen gave the children rides in the fire engines, even spraying a jet of water from the front of one for good measure.

The Royal Bank of Canada Trust Company also made similar presentations to the residents and staff of the Pines Retirement Home and to the staffs of the George Town Hospital and Chrissie Tomlinson Memorial Hospital.
