Ministry donates to West Indian Association

Minister of Public Works Lieutenant-Colonel David Burch and staff from his ministry have donated $1,035 to the West Indian Association in support of its hurricane relief campaign.

The funds were raised as a result of a Denim Day on October 4 and will go towards assisting Caribbean islands devastated by Hurricanes Irma, Jose and Marie.

Mr Burch said: “We all watched in disbelief as Hurricanes Irma, Jose and Marie devastated several Caribbean islands. Thanks to the concern of the entire ministry staff we were able to raise funds for this effort. We are pleased to lend our support to help our Caribbean brothers and sisters impacted by these storms.”

The cheque presentation to the association's president Damian Brewster took place on top of the Government Administration Building along with staff members Jana Darrell, JoAnne Smith and Claudelle Richardson.
