Scotiabank and ICBL take up ice bucket challenge
THE MONEY JUST keeps rolling in for the Challenor School.
Yesterday it was the turn of Scotiabank and the Insurance Corporation of Barbados Limited (ICBL) to donate money to the institution by completing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
Staff of Scotiabank’s, Warrens branch took to the nearby open lot where they treated motorists on the Ronald Mapp Highway to the sight of screaming and jumping employees as the cold water was doused over them.
Marketing manager at Scotiabank, Amanda Lynch-Foster told WEEKEND NATION that they would donate $1 000 to the school, along with added donations from members of staff.
She said once the final balance was available, their head office in Toronto, Canada would also match it.
Shortly after, it was the turn of ICBL CEO, Ingrid Inniss, whose “baptism” was witnessed by a large crowd of employees.
Before being doused though, she “nominated” Governor of the Central Bank, Dr Delisle Warner, CEO of CIBC First Caribbean, Rik Parkhill and CEO of Island Heritage, Mark Shearer to take the challenge.
She also pledged the company would match all monies raised by its employees and customers. (RB)
