FirstCaribbean International Bank’s record of community support continues to grow, with its latest donation going to the Girls’ Brigade of the Cayman Islands National Council.
Marjorie Beckles, chair of the National Council, said the donation will go towards sending the young Girls’ Brigade leaders to their international conference in Northern Ireland later this year.
‘We are very grateful to FirstCaribbean for this generous contribution, and appreciate the interest that they’ve taken in our community,’ she said in a press release.
The Girls’ Brigade celebrates its 60th anniversary in the Cayman Islands this year. They are a nondenominational organisation whose aim it is to provide girls aged four to 17 with spiritual, educational, physical and social skills, thereby enriching their lives. There are currently 275 members in six groups operating in Cayman.
‘We are more than happy to help the youth by contributing to this worthy cause,’ said Carol Braggs, Branch Manager of FirstCaribbean’s Main Street branch in George Town.
‘I am a former Girls’ Brigade member myself, and it definitely helped to shape the adult I am today.’
