Representatives from the Buccament Bay Secondary School, the Barrouallie Secondary and Our Lady of Guadalupe Home for Girls were on hand at the showroom floor in Kingstown to receive a number of appliances and accessories from Courts.

Accepting a TCL 24 inch LCD television and a LG DVD player for Our Lady of Guadalupe Home for Girls was Sister Gertrude who thanked Courts for the worthy donation and noted that the gifts would benefit the home and students.

Sister Gertrude expressed sincere appreciation to Courts for the donations, which she said would enable them to continue the girls’ education and entertainment.

“We want to make them feel at home, and we would make sure they make use of these in a manner that would promote their education and well being.”

Also benefitting from Courts’ generosity on Tuesday through the donation of two General Electric six burner stoves were the secondary schools at Buccament Bay and Central Leeward.

Both Kay Martin Jack, Acting Principal at Buccament Bay, and Librarian Shelly-Ann Roberts, representing the Central Leeward Secondary School, indicated that before the donations, their schools were without stoves.

Roberts said that the stove will be used in the school’s kitchenette, and will serve both staff and students with hot meals. She indicated that the stove is expected to go a long way in bringing comfort and value to all who will benefit from its presence, and graciously thanked Courts for the gift.

Jack noted that the stove at Buccament Bay is expected to be used in the school’s feeding program, and will upgrade the students’ meals from light lunches to hot, wholesome meals and thanked Courts for its gesture.

“With a stove coming on stream, we can provide even more nutritious lunches, and from a school’s perspective, we are now starting and struggling, and this donation from Courts is a big help because we could not have afforded to buy a stove at this time, and we really thank Courts for the contribution.”

Courts officials, who handed over the products to the educators, said that they hoped the donations will make the educators and students of the institutions more comfortable, and go a long way to the development of the students education.

Courts’ Marketing Officer Alexis John said “enhancing our educational institutions facilities is a major focus in our sponsorship guidelines, as a result we did not hesitate when the requests was made.”

John further stressed that “the donations are geared towards assisting the organizations in their delivery of their programmes and making life more comfortable for both staff and students.”

John also highlighted that every donation that is made is facilitated by their ‘loyal customers”. He thanked every customer who over years had made Courts their Furniture and Appliance Store of Choice.

In concluding, John extended best wishes to staff and students at the various institutions.
