The Little Cayman District
Committee of the National Trust for the Cayman Islands is preparing for its
annual Easter auction.
The event, which is set to take
place on Saturday, 3 April, is now in its 18th year and is the biggest fundraiser
for the committee.
“With the help of our steadfast
supporters, the Little Cayman District Committee has done an amazing job of
conserving and preserving the special world that is Little Cayman,” said Debbi
Truchan, head of the district committee.
The district committee successfully
established the Booby Pond as a protected nesting reserve for frigate birds and
red-footed boobies. The district committee is also close to establishing the
first reserve in the world to protect the endangered Sister Islands Rock
Iguana, which is found only on Little Cayman and Cayman Brac.
The auction continues to grow each
year, enticing more and more people to attend and bringing attention to the
donations and donors who have supported the Trust’s efforts. The organisers
have requested members of the community to come forward with donations of merchandise,
services, or other items worthwhile for auction.
The event will feature a live
auction and a silent auction, making all donations significant.
