GT Primary gets assistance

Kiwanis Club President Karen Barnett handed over tow cheques to staff at the George Town Primary School on June 10.

A cheque for $2,000 for the Breakfast Programme and one for $1,800 for the After School Programme were accepted by Deputy Principal Dorothy Bodden-Wilson.

Funds for the Breakfast Programme are raised from generous public donations, which help to buy breakfast for less fortunate students.

Kiwanis provide funds to several primary schools every school term and depend on the generosity of the public when they convene on their collection days at the various supermarkets.

Mrs. Bodden said the need for financial assistance with the Breakfast and After School Programmes is only getting bigger, as more families run into financial difficulties.

‘I am grateful for the donations and I would like to thank the Kiwanis Club for their continuing effort in collecting these funds,’ she said.

Kiwanis is a global organisation of volunteers that say they are changing the world one child and one community at a time.
