The annual “Talent Xposition of the Arts” raised $1,500 for the National Council of Voluntary Organisations’ Children’s Home.

The talent show was organized by the New Self-Help Community Foundation in June.

Alta Bodden-Solomon, NCVO coordinator, said, “What a fantastic event to aid the children at the NCVO foster home.”

She thanked the sponsors, organizers and performers. “Not only was the night showcasing amazing entertainment, but a donation from the proceeds raised was given to the foster home.

“It is only through continued support of our community, individuals and business that we are able to continue assisting those in need within our islands.”

JC Connor of the New Self-Help Community Foundation said, “It is our moral obligation to help the less fortunate in our society who are struggling to stand on their feet, for improvements in their lives.”
