Volunteers help school

A team of Digicel staff members recently volunteered to paint the building and plant trees at Prospect Primary School through the firm’s Helping Hands programme.

Eight Digicel staff members helped paint one of the school walls and school benches in the play area. The school also was refreshed by the addition of five plants, including palm trees and bougainvillea, at the front of the building.

“I am extremely proud to be a part of this team as we offer support to our community,” said Erika Connolly of Digicel. “I felt empowered by giving back and I am looking forward to doing more projects of this nature.”

The volunteer effortis one of many community projects Digicel has undertaken this year.

Sharez Laws, Digicel’s marketing and communications manager, said, “At Digicel, we value our community – we do not see ourselves as just a mobile company. We understand the importance of corporate responsibility and endeavour to continuously make our contributions on island.

“We are thankful for the opportunity given to use by Prospect Primary. Our team enjoyed interacting with staff members and demonstrating to the students. We look forward to doing similar projects in the near future.”

Prospect Primary School Principal Gloria Bell said she was grateful for the support.

“We are thankful for socially responsible corporate entities such as Digicel who willingly volunteer their services towards making our learning environment appealing as we continue to deliver the best learning opportunities to our students at Prospect Primary.”
