The Police Cooperative Credit Union (PCCU) Ltd. has once again partnered with the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF) to sponsor the 2022 Police Christmas Carolling Contest.
The PCCU has been a major sponsor of the event since 2012, a release from the Police Public Relations and Complaints Department states.
President of the PCCU, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Enville Williams handed over a cheque in the sum of $3,900.00 to Commissioner of Police, Colin John on Tuesday, November 22 as the Credit Union’s contribution to this year’s contest.
Other persons present at the brief handover ceremony were Manager of the PCCU, Ayanna Samuel; Coordinator of the Police Carolling Contest, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Junior Simmons; and PC 353 Rockel Coombs, attached to the Public Relations and Complaints Department.
During the ceremony at the Police Headquarters conference room, ACP Williams said as part of the PCCU’s corporate social responsibility, it is imperative that the institution gives back to the community which it serves.
According to ACP Williams, sponsoring the Police Christmas Carolling Contest is just one of the many ways in which the PCCU seeks to execute its vision to be the premier financial institution in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
“Excluding 2021, this is the ninth year since the PCCU has been sponsoring the Police Christmas Carolling Contest. We do so because we have experienced and seen the joy it has brought to the patrons who attend and the different groups that participate in it,” said the president of the credit union.
In accepting the sponsorship cheque, the Commissioner of Police expressed gratitude to the PCCU on behalf of the police force for sponsoring the Christmas Carolling contest for yet another year, and commended the board and management of the PCCU for its generosity and partnership with the RSVGPF over the years.
The Commissioner expressed optimism about the future undertakings of both organizations and said he is confident that the PCCU and the RSVGPF will continue to work together to realize tangible and mutually rewarding benefits to both organizations and their members.
