ExxonMobil Guyana has launched “The Big Red Bus Tour” to boost community engagement while announcing a $10 million giveaway competition featuring an MG car as the grand prize.
Local artistes Poonam Singh, Jackie Jaxx and CKush the rapper headlined the well-attended event at the Amazonia Mall, Providence, on Saturday, January 27, performing their Guyana-themed hits, setting the tone for the initiative, which will be exploring Guyana’s heritage on its many stops.
The tour will visit multiple destinations across seven regions, taking ExxonMobil Guyana staff out to meet people where they are and to learn more about their culture and the country’s heritage. En route, the bus will stop for public engagements at multiple locations, including several national sites, to celebrate their historical significance.
ExxonMobil Guyana’s Public and Government Affairs Manager Matthew Scharf noted, “It’s important to us to engage with communities regularly and continuously. Our Big Red Bus Tour is an opportunity for people across the country to engage with ExxonMobil staff, for us to get to know them, to share more about our operations and the initiatives we have in Guyana, and to answer questions. It’s also an opportunity for us to learn more about this beautiful country and its heritage.”
The tour began on Saturday in Georgetown and then heads cross country before returning to the city with the grand prize draw on March 16. The competition is open to all Guyanese over 18 currently residing in any region of Guyana and can be entered by scanning a QR code available on the Big Red Bus and ExxonMobil Guyana’s social media platforms and website.
