THE ORGANISERS of the Barbados Secondary Schools Athletic Championships (BSSAC) now have 2 500 reasons to smile.
That’s because Scotiabank has joined forces with the highly popular “Inter-School sports” event, and donated $2 500 towards next week’s opening parade.
This was revealed during a press conference at the CGI Towers, Warrens Complex yesterday by Scotiabank’s marketing manager Amanda Lynch-Foster.
The money will be awarded to the schools which place first, second and third during the parade while there will also be a prize for the Most Improved School.
Chairman of the BSSAC committee, Vasco Dash, who collected the sponsorship cheque, said that BSSAC was excited to have Scotiabank as a partner.
“BSSAC is thrilled that Scotiabank has become part of the championships. In these difficult times, every little bit of finance we can get helps because the championships are becoming more and more expensive and all the money which we can get is important,” he explained.
“Also they are a number of first-class athletes taking part in the championships . . . and they are also young athletes who are working hard and training hard and performing extremely well.
“I am sure that they will bring honour  to Barbados and their start has come through these championships and with Scotiabank on board now it gives us more funds to assist them.”
Lynch-Foster said Scotiabank was happy to assist track and field, calling it an “exciting new development”.
“We are truly glad to extend our sports support in Barbados to inter-school sports for several reasons. Everyone loves inter-school sports [because] it gets our pride going and is something everyone can be enthusiastic about.” (RMB)
