Georgetown, Guyana - The eight cricket teams of the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC) last weekend launched their third major programmes for 2014 when they made their first donation under the Community/Children Development Project.
The teams- RHT Farfan and Mendes Under-15, Bakewell Under-17 and second division, Pepsi Under-19 and Intermediate, Metro females and Gizmos and Gadgets Under-21 and first division- had last week launched their 2014 pro-education and charity projects.
The cricketers donated a set of office furniture, notice boards, stationery and cleaning detergents to the Rose Hall Town Police Outpost, while 11 outstanding students of the Rose Hall Town Nursery School received personal collection of children story books, stationery and snacks.
A donation of children clothing and snacks were also donated to the Camal Children Home of Albion.
Public Relations Officer and Office Manager of the RHTY&SC, Moonish Singh, in handing over the donations, noted that the club is based in the Rose Hall Town area and therefore is committed to the development of the township, its surrounding villages and young children.
He stated that the donation to the Rose Hall Town Police Outpost was to assist the lawmen to fulfill their mandates to protect and serve the township.
Singh noted that children are the future of Guyana, and as such, the cricketers of the RHTY&SC were proud to invest into their future.
He urged the nursery school students who received the story books to develop the love of reading at a young age and to be good listeners.
Secretary/CEO of the club, Hilbert Foster, hailed the cricketers for their continued commitment under the three major programmes to make a difference. Foster stated that 20 community projects/programmes would be organised while the cricketers intend to make positive differences to at least 2500 children during 2014.
Headmistress of the Rose Hall Town Nursery School, Sandra Whyte, and Corporal Tyndall of the Rose Hall Town Police Outpost expressed gratitude to the RHTY&SC cricketers for their assistance. Tyndall praised the cricketers for being sport ambassadors and role models for youths in the township.
Whyte stated that the RHTY&SC has always assisted her school and its students and wished the club success on the cricket field and their personal careers.
