The Honourable Minister of Education Colin Riley on Wednesday, March 13, 2013, expressed thanks to Alex Hourani and Cool N Smooth Antigua for their continued support of Montserrat’s athletics and other community initiatives.

Hourani visited the island this time, to make a donation of five trophies, 100 T-shirts, 60 medals, 10 cases of water and 10 of Gatorade for the athletes participating in the annual Easter Monday Relay Race slated for April 1, 2013.

Minister Riley welcomed this latest donation is and noted that the company had only recently donated a television set to the Glendon Hospital. He added that over the past two years, Cool N Smooth has been steadily supporting Montserrat’s sports teams and that has helped to boost morale and the image of the sport on island.

Hourani said he has grown to appreciate the people and island of Montserrat and the support that he also receives at his business on Antigua. He added that sports, was very important to the development of children and he has seen the results of it in his own life and that of his family. Being able to contribute the medals and other items was part of the way he can give back to the island and the children.

He is hopeful in the future that the Easter Monday Relay Race can be expanded to included teams from the neighbouring islands, which can help to further boost the sport but also tourism for Montserrat.

The Minister also noted: “Even though we have a population that’s only at about five thousand, we are able to put out teams competitive teams in about five different sports, at different age levels, in cricket, basketball and net ball, as well as for track and field.”
