The ten cricket teams of the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club over the years has hosted an annual Christmas Charity Programme along with its widely popular Christmas Village which normally attracts thousands of excited children and parents.
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the teams would be unable to host the village in all of its glory but would be hosting their 30th annual Christmas Charity programme. The activity was officially launched on Tuesday last when Managing Director of E&A Consultant’s Inc, Mrs. Anasha Ally handed over a cheque in memory of her late dad, Ananda T. Dharry, the founder of the company.
RHTY&SC Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster in accepting the donation expressed gratitude to the company for the significant contribution. He explained that the ten teams during the 5th to 24th of December would be distributing one thousand food hampers to less fortunate families along with five thousand toys across the Ancient County.
Additionally, the club and its team would be providing special Christmas packages to hundreds of senior citizens. Clothing, footwear and educational materials would also be shared out while donations would also be made to several Children Orphanages and Senior Citizens Homes. Foster explained that the Christmas packages would be a new addition to the programme and would involve the delivery of a special gift bag to senior citizens. The teams will also visit the homes of two hundred senior citizens on Christmas Morning to deliver a special Christmas breakfast to them. Christmas toys would also be donated to Churches, so that they can share with their members.
The Long serving Club Official expressed gratitude to the Management of the E&A Consultants’ Inc. for making the contribution in honour of its founder. The late Ananda T. Dharry who died five years ago was described as a very strong supporter of the club and an outstanding product of the small township of Rose Hall.
The club would be presenting him with its highest award “The Dolphin Award of Excellence” posthumously and his daughter would be accepting it at a special ceremony in November. The Dolphin Award of Excellence is specially reserved for sixty persons, who the club views as positive role models for youths to emulate.
Mrs. Ally congratulated the club for its outstanding work and urged the executives to continue on the same path. She disclosed that the late Dharry always spoke highly of the work of the club and it’s Secretary/CEO. She expressed delight at the club’s decision to honour her father and accepted the offer to receive the award.
