The Grenada Electricity Services Limited (GRENLEC) presented in excess of $60,000.00 to two local organisations as part of its Community Partnership Initiative.
During a brief ceremony held at the company’s headquarters at Dusty Highway, Grand Anse last week Friday, the Grenada Swimming Association received a cheque for $60,000.00 while the Grenada Women’s Cricket Development Programme received $18,000.00.
Accepting the cheque on behalf of the Grenada Swimming Association was President, Michelle Steele who assured GRENLEC that the organisation is very appreciative of the contribution, which will be used wisely to purchase much needed equipment, make improvements to the swimming facility, maintenance and building organisational quality.
Assistant Secretary of the Women’s Cricket Development Programme, Michelle Bedeau was equally appreciative of GRENLEC’s gesture towards the development of women’s cricket in Grenada.
She said that the Association will embark on an islandwide campaign geared at recruiting young female cricketers.
Bedeau stressed that the money received would be used to continue the development of women’s cricket in the country.
Several cricket gears were also presented to the Women’s Cricket Development Programme.
GRENLEC’s Human Resource Manager, Jacqueline Williams said that she is happy to join both organisations and contribute toward the development of sports in Grenada.
She said that the company has set aside $2 million for community development sports, science and technology and several other initiatives.
Williams believes that sports bring people and communities together and GRENLEC as a co-operative entity is doing its part and also wished both organisations the best in their future endeavours.
