Panthera Solutions onboard RHTY&SC Christmas Charity Programme
Since its formation in 1990, the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC), MS, has hosted a Charity programme with the main objective of putting a smile on the faces of the less fortunate during the festive season.
The 10 cricket teams of the club host a year-long 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 December 24.
The teams since mid-September started to plan for the programme and on Monday last, received a major boost with a significant financial boost 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 40-page youth information booklet.
Foster disclosed that this year, the Christmas Charity Programme would involve the distribution of 1,000 food hampers to less fortunate families, 5,000 Christmas toys and a feeding programme to provide a warm box of food to 1,000 persons.
Additionally, 500 families would receive a special Christmas package consisting of apples, grapes, biscuits, wall nuts, sweets and other items, while hundreds of senior citizens would be provided with a special Christmas eve breakfast at their residence by the teams.
Among the other programmes planned are distribution of clothing, school bags, educational materials along with donations to orphanages and senior citizens homes.
Foster stated that the 10 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 Females and NAMILCO Under-21 and First Division- would oversee the three-week programme.
The RHTY&SC Secretary/CEO expressed gratitude to Panthera Solution and its General Manager Andrew Dinsdale for their support.
Dinsdale, in his remarks, hailed the RHTY&SC as a role model organisation which his company was pleased to be associated with. Panthera Solutions is a joint venture between Farfan and Mendes Limited and the Canadian-based company, Crosbie.
Panthera Solutions is located at Providence, East Bank Demerara, and offers services in the local Oil Sector. Dinsdale assured the RHTY&SC, MS, that his company was committed to a long-term relationship and that its sponsorship would increase as the business expands in Guyana.
Meanwhile, the 10 cricket teams would like to express gratitude to numerous local and overseas-based Guyanese who have come on board to offer support.
