Police make donation

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service recently donated proceeds from its Easter Egg Run to various charities including the Cays Foundation, The Cayman Islands Hospital and several homes for the elderly.

‘Donating the money we received from the Easter Egg Run to charity is a way for the RCIP to be able to give back to the community,’ said Community Policing Officer Steve Myers, who was the organizer of the Easter Egg Run.

During the donation presentation, Director of the Bonaventure Boys Home Tony Scott received a CI$2,000 cheque for the Cays Foundation and thanked the Police Service for its contribution.

Ms Dawn Rankine from the Department of Children and Family Services stated that she was grateful to the RCIP for the pedicures and footbaths that were donated to various homes for the elderly.

The Cayman Islands Hospital also received televisions for the medical and surgical wards and two dvd players and a computer for the pediatric unit.

Constable Myers would like to thank all of the sponsors including: Alpha Soft, Vibe Radio, TeleCayman Ltd, Creative Tech Ltd and Hi Tech Electronics as well as the sponsors who contributed to making the Easter Egg Run a success.
