The Janice Lyttle Foundation for heart disease is a non- profit organization that serves Vincentians. Its goal is to provide support and some funding for the education of Vincentians on hypertensive cardiovascular disease.

At the handing over of the cheque, this country’s Super Star of Soca Kevin Lyttle and son of Janice Lyttle paid tribute to his mom for her contribution to life and to LIME for assisting in this worthwhile venture. Said Lyttle “Our aim is to help people to benefit from the tremendous strides made in the treatment, detection and prevention of heart disease. My mom died from this disease and this foundation is dedicated in her name and will definitely make a difference to Vincentians. Our vision is to be the leading resource for support and information on cardiovascular disease in St Vincent and the Grenadines. Our programs and services will teach people of all ages how to prevent and recognize cardiovascular disease.”

LIME General Manager, Angus Steele, handed over the cheque to the Board of Directors and used the occasion to highlight that even in the middle of the Vincy Mas festival, LIME is showing that it has a heart and is giving from its heart towards this effort.

Steele commented: “Our work in the community is well known by all Vincentians and we will continue to support any effort to make our citizens’ lives better.”

On Carnival Tuesday, July 6, the Foundation will hold a fundraising dance at the Aquatic Club. The event will feature the Burning Flames from Antigua along with many local artistes like LIME Soca Dans and Kevin Lyttle. Proceeds from this event will be used to purchase equipment and assist in the educational campaign for the detection and prevention of heart disease.
