Donors give $8,600 to school

Generous donors have given $8,600
to the children of George Town Primary School to help pay for lunches,
breakfasts and uniforms.

The Lean on Me Committee organised
the fundraising drive and handed over a cheque to school officials on Sunday
afternoon.

Principal Marie Martin said the
money could not have come at a better time.

“We want to thank the Lean on Me
Committee for doing this. It comes at a time when everybody is feeling the
economic crunch.

“The money will go towards lunches
and breakfasts and school uniforms for families in need,” she said.

Derri Lee, chairwoman
of the Lean of Me Committee, said an anonymous donor had given $5,000 and a
second anonymous donor gave $1,000. The Water Authority donated $2,600.
