Henry is an Office Assistant and seasoned member of the BCB. She has owned the plot of land on which the home was built since 2009 but was unable to construct since. In 2018 she approached President of BCB for aid in constructing a single bedroom home, who committed to raising funds for the home.
On Friday she expressed her immense gratitude for the assistance she received, as it will see her and her youngest son now living in comfort.
A cheque for the purchase of a pitch cover was also handed over to BCB Assistant Treasurer, Mr. Neil Rudder and Secretary, Ms. Angela Haniff, who were both present at the event.
