The Office of The Governor-General and Staff is pleased to announce the winning entry in the Christmas Good Deeds Competition. First place is awarded to a group of volunteers from Clarendon led by Chavan Nelson who gave a full day of service at the Anderson Home for Children in May Pen. Their service included cleaning the home, grooming the children and providing food and gift items for the children and members of staff. The Governor-General will be hosting the group at a luncheon at King’s House.
The County prizes are awarded as follows:
- Middlesex: Albert Inshanally and his sister Ann-Marie who gave a full day of service at the Missionaries of the Poor’s Bethlehem’s Children Home on 23 December and assisted with hygiene, grooming and feeding.
- Surrey: The “Be Inspired Club” which consists of eight persons. On 17 December they visited the Golden Age Home in Vineyard Town where they helped with hygiene and feeding and also interacted with the senior citizens for several hours.
- Cornwall: This project was done by a group of three youngsters from the Herbert Morrison Technical High School and three UWI-WJC students. They raised funds to provide free lunches to many homeless people on the streets of Montego Bay and on December 18 they did their walk-about distribution.
The Office of The Governor-General thanks everyone who entered the competition for their participation and encourages them to continue helping others during 2015.
