Earlier this month, Regent Street business W.J. Enterprise extended its partnership with the Petra Organisation. The distribution company, which is the sole distributor of Croxley Paper in Guyana, continued its support by donating a printer, file cabinet and a supply of Croxley Paper.
The Petra group is the pioneer of several youth football tournaments in the city and has been the backbone of senior football in Georgetown in recent years.
