(ZIZ News) — The McKnight Community Centre and the St. Kitts-Nevis Association for Persons with Disabilities have gotten a helping hand from telecommunications company Digicel.
On Tuesday the company presented five thousand dollars to Association President, Anthony Mills.
Digicel’s CEO Johnny Ingle said his company is thrilled to give back to the community.
“It gives me, as a man, as a person, as a human being, and as a representative of Digicel immense pride to have words of wisdom with Anthony before this broadcast. The cheque is given with an open, honest, and genuine heart from Digicel and it is presented to you Anthony to help develop further what you wish to do here in McKnight. And it’s important that this is where greatness starts. Support at all levels for all people no matter what the challenges,” he said.
Minister of Community Development, the Hon. Marcella Liburd thanked Digicel for its generosity and community spirit.
“In McKnight, we have a very strong community and so we could do well with the assistance to improve the McKnight Community Centre for all who use it, especially persons with disabilities,” she said.
President of the SKNADP, Anthony Mills said the group would put the money to good use.
“This donation would help to improve the programme that we’re currently running and do some work that we need to do around the Community Centre. Delroy and I have had this conversation many times so now we can actually get those things done. So, I just want to say thank you to Digicel and hope that we can continue to receive your support,” he said.
The donation comes as Digicel celebrates its ninth anniversary in St. Kitts-Nevis.
