As the school year comes to an end and parents look for positive activities to keep their children happy and healthy over the summer months FirstCaribbean International Bank has once again stepped forward to help.
The Cayman Islands Football Association is putting on a series of youth football camps over the summer. Thanks to corporate sponsors such as FirstCaribbean the camps are completely free.
Accepting the donation on behalf of CIFA was Kennedy Ebanks, who said: ‘These annual football camps have been running since 1984. They are free for boys and girls between six and 16 years of age. The kids receive a free T-shirt, lunch each day and a souvenir ball at the end of the camp.’
This year there will be four camps held across the Cayman Islands. There will be one in George Town, one in North Sound, one in Cayman Brac, and one that is open to handicapped children.
Making the donation for FirstCaribbean was Patrick Cover, Corporate Relationship Manager, said: ‘These camps perform an important community service and FirstCaribbean International Bank is proud to join with the other sponsors to ensure they remain free of charge to Caymanian families.
‘As long time supporters of the Lighthouse School FirstCaribbean knows how important it is to have one of these camps focused on the needs of handicapped youth who are too often overlooked.’
