Students get special treatment from Digicel

Students from the School for Children with Special Needs (some of them Special Olympics athletes) got the opportunity to see Bangladesh put some pressure on the West Indies Cricket Team on Sunday.{{more}}

The ten students, chaperoned by Terrence Davis, were hosted by Digicel at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex, as part of the company’s continued efforts at embracing its social responsibility in St.Vincent and the Grenadines.

The 10 youngsters, all clad in Digicel T-Shirts and caps enjoyed hours of cricket while being pampered by the members of the Digicel staff during the fourth day of the five day test.

Chaperone Terrence Davis told Digicel on Sunday that from his observation the students were “very much into cricket and enjoying themselves immensely”.

Himself a cricket fan, Davis added: “It was a good thing for them to come here, and if it was not for Digicel, most of them would not get the opportunity to come and see cricket, so for that I am grateful”.

“Thanks for giving us the opportunity to come out and be a part of the happenings here; you see it on TV from time to time, but this afforded us the opportunity to be close to the action,” smiled Davis while thanking Digicel on behalf of the School and their Special Olympics programme.
