St Benedict Nursery receives thousands in cash from DIGICEL

The St Benedict’s Day Nursery and Children’s Home in Georgetown is starting the New Year on a high, with a cash injection of thousands, compliments Digicel SVG.

The institution was identified to benefit from the cash donation, after one of its employees, Sabrina Sandy, was named one of Digicel’s Golden Tickets winners in its 2016 GetGifted Christmas campaign, winning herself $5,000 cash. Sandy qualified to win the cash prize, after topping up $15 during the month of December at the Digicel retail store in Georgetown – G-Tech.

Sandy stated that having been employed with the St Benedict’s Day Nursery for more than four years and knowing the needs of the institution, she saw it more than fitting to donate the majority of the cash to the Home, which serves as a safe haven for many children across St Vincent and the Grenadines.

The very elated Georgetown resident thanked Digicel for continually finding ways to reward its customers and for mandating that a portion of its $150,000 in cash and prizes for its 2016 Christmas campaign was awarded to at least one charitable organization here. Sandy said the $1,000 cash that will be kept for herself could not have come at a better time, as she will be celebrating her birthday on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 and the cash will help to ensure that her big day is filled with much to eat and drink.

Meanwhile, Digicel’s marketing manager Danielle Cupid congratulated Sandy and commended her for so willingly identifying the St Benedict Day Nursery to share in her $5,000 cash prize.

Cupid also encouraged other Digicel customers to look forward to a very rewarding year, explaining that there is much to be had in 2017. She said while the telecommunications company commenced the New Year with a $2,000 text to win competition, persons can look forward to a series of campaigns throughout the year, all designed to reward and enhance the Digicel experience of all customers.
