Community group planning Jolly Christmas
THE ST MATTHIAS Community Association, which handed out 300 toys and several food hampers during the 2013 Christmas season, is looking to improve numbers this year.
Vice president Peter Barrow made the disclosure today during a ceremony in which the accounting firm KPMG handed over a cheque for $8 000 to help fund the social group’s Christmas programme.
One highlight of the 2014 programme is a December 20 concert called Christmas On The Boardwalk which will involve entertainers including Red Plastic Bag, the former calypso king, violinist Shawn Hope and steel pan player Terry “Mexican” Arthur.
KPMG’s Brenda Pope, advisory partner and corporate social responsibility partner, said the donation was part of the agency’s programme of “giving back to the community”. (TY)
