– grateful for public response to annual raffle

The Guyana Committee of Service (GCOS), whose mandate is to assist sportspersons/ sports organisations and the performing arts, has doled out gear and cash grants to various track & field clubs, not only from the capital city, but from Berbice and Linden as well.

This was done on Thursday last at the National Park in Georgetown.
GCOS Committee Member Leslie Black, in a correspondence to the media, noted that for the past three years the GCOS has been at the beck and call of the athletics community whenever support has been needed, and he referred to the sponsorship of the CARIFTA Games athletes as a case in point.
Black shared that the GCOS has been able to continue assisting sports’ development mainly through the proceeds of its annual raffle that was drawn last month, and he thanked all those who had supported the fundraising venture.
