Red Cross delivered late Christmas toys to Primary Schools

2013-02-08 09.28.47Children at Montserrat Primary schools finally received toys that were to be in their hands at Christmas just passed. The Montserrat Red Cross early in February presented toys to children in the island’s primary schools On February 8, it was the Catholic St. Augustine school’s turn to receive.

Eloise Irish, treasurer, Director Pauline Everett and Carlene Farrell a board director, showed up at the children’s regular morning assembly for the occasion where they delivered the toys destined to reach the hands of every child at the school as they said they had done previously at the other schools, Lookout, Brades and Light house academy.

The Red Cross noted that this initiative was made possible through the generous donation of toys form Spin Master in Canada. The director also said unfortunately the toys did not arrive in time for Christmas ‘but perhaps receiving them at a later date is an even nicer surprise.’

She told the St. Augustine teachers and pupils that the Red Cross is extremely grateful to Spin Master for their continued support to the children on Montserrat and knows the children would appreciate toys.

Meanwhile, the school’s Principal Miss Ann-Marie Dewar expressed words of thanks to the Red Cross branch on behalf of the children who themselves showed their appreciation.
