The money represents the Company’s contribution in its partnership with the Ministry of Education in the staging of the 2013 edition of the United Insurance Secondary Schools’ Cricket Tournament.

In handing over the cheque, the company’s representative, Mr Iton, expressed his company’s pleasure and continued commitment to secondary schools’ cricket.

“We at United Insurance are pleased to be partnering with the Ministry of Education for 29 rewarding years as part of our social responsibility to our blessed country’s young adults’ holistic development.”

“We trust that our partnership will continue to bear fruits and that several of these young cricketers will go on to represent the National team and even the West Indies.”

Neptune, in accepting the cheque, was full of appreciation for United’s continued support.

“We of the Ministry of Education are delighted to be associated with such a kind-hearted and noble company and are extremely appreciative of your continued sponsorship/partnership as we work together to develop our nation’s youth.”

“It is indeed heartening that even in these trying economic times that United Insurance has seen it fit to continue supporting the Ministry and for this we are extremely grateful.”

The tournament, which commenced on February 13, and has 22 secondary schools competing for the coveted United Insurance Trophy, the symbol of supremacy in secondary schools’ cricket, is in its 29th year. George Stevens Secondary School are the defending champions.

Several persons, including Ian Allen, Nixon Mc Lean, Cameron Cuffy and Deighton Butler who “wet their feet” in this tournament, have gone on to greater things by representing the national, sub-regional and West Indies teams.
