Panthera Solutions makes significant financial contribution to Christmas Charity Programme of RHTY&SC, MS
– Overseas-based Guyanese also on board.
Since its formation in 1990, the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club, MS, has hosted a Charity programme with the main objective of putting smiles on the faces of the less fortunate during the festive season.
The ten cricket teams of the club host a yearlong programme for the elderly and less fortunate, but special emphasis is placed on the Christmas segment during the month of December. This year’s programme would start on December 5 and conclude on Christmas Eve Day, December 24.
The teams have, since mid-September, been planning for the programme, and on Monday last, they received a major boost with a significant financial contribution from Panthera Solutions. Club Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster accepted the contribution on behalf of the teams.
The company, in 2019, came on board as an official sponsor of the club, and co-sponsored the 2019 Christmas Charity Programme along with a forty-page youth information booklet. Foster disclosed that this year, the Christmas Charity Programme would involve the distribution of one thousand food hampers to less fortunate families, together five thousand Christmas toys and a feeding programme to provide a warm box of food to one thousand persons.
Additionally, five hundred families would receive a special Christmas package consisting of apples, grapes, biscuits, walnuts, sweets and other items; while hundreds of senior citizens would be provided by the teams with a special Christmas Eve breakfast at their residence.
Among the other programmes planned are distribution of clothing, school bags, educational materials, and donations to orphanages and senior citizens’ homes.
Foster has said that the ten teams: Poonai Pharmacy Under 12 and Under 13, Farfan and Mendes Under 15, Bakewell Under 17 and Second Division, Pepsi Under 19 and Intermediate, Metro Female, Namilco Under 21 and First Division, would look after the three-week programme.
The RHTY&SC Secretary/CEO has expressed gratitude to Panthera Solution and its General Manager Andrew Dinsdale for the support received. Dinsdale, in his remarks, hailed the RHTY&SC as a role model organisation with which his company is pleased to be associated.
Panthera Solutions is a joint venture between Farfan and Mendes Ltd and the Canada- based company Crosbie. This company, located at Providence, East Bank Demerara, offers services in the local oil sector. Dinsdale has assured the RHTY&SC, MS, that his company is committed to a long-term relationship, and that its sponsorship would increase as the business expands in Guyana.
The ten cricket teams of the RHTY&SC, MS, would also like to express profound gratitude to numerous local and overseas-based Guyanese who have come on board to offer support.
