Prospect Community Group deputy leader Mark Rickman helps out.

Volunteers from the Prospect Community Group picked up their cleaning supplies and paint brushes over the weekend to give the Red Bay Primary School library a face lift in time for the new school year.

As part of the rejuvenation project, the volunteers cleaned, organized and repainted the library space on Saturday.

Organizer and Prospect Community Group executive member Kara Coe said, “It was a great way to give back to the community, and thanks go out to all of those who took time out of their busy weekend to assist.”

Also taking part were community group leader Sabrina Tuner, the group’s deputy leader Mark Rickman, Joel Francis, Royal Cayman Islands Police Service PC Christopher Donaldson and Chanda Glidden.

“Although the hard work is complete, the group is asking for donations of books, cushions and rugs to make the space more vibrant and appealing to the students,” the community group said in a press release.
