Kiwanis Club of Grand Cayman took
part in a Designer Showcase at Cypress Pointe, Crystal Harbour, last weekend to
raise funds to buy books for the club’s mobile library.
The mobile library travels to
various communities in Grand Cayman, lending books and offering one-on-one
reading opportunities for underprivileged children.
Members of the club said they still
have a way to go with funding in order to keep an updated supply of books. They
encouraged the community and businesses to get involved with the programme,
which benefits many youngsters, according to Kiwanis’ public relations
chairperson Mary McCallum.
The Designer Showcase, organised by
a local radio station, showcases interior designs by companies throughout
Cayman. It can be viewed in a $2.85 million dollar NCB Homes’ house which is
located at Cypress Point and features a 7,600-square-foot home with four
bedrooms, five bathrooms, an infinity pool and boat dock. Each room is designed
by a different design company.
The house is open for public
viewing every Saturday until 12 June. Ms McCallum said: “It was a great
experience and it’s not just about the collection of funds but it also gave the
Club members, who volunteered, an opportunity to interact with residents of our
community and talk about the Kiwanis organisation and our community projects.”
She also thanked the broadcast
company for the opportunity to be one of the charities able to benefit from the
donations at the Designer Showcase.
