CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER of the Nation Group of Companies, Anthony Shaw, has vowed to match whatever his staff donates within the coming week to The Bahamas relief effort.

He made the pledge following a $15 000 donation on behalf of the group to the Rise Again Bahamas mediathon at the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation, The Pine, St Michael, last night.

“Marketing and HR have a memo to send to staff starting today to get them to contribute towards this exercise. Additionally, the company will support whatever initiatives come from staff which is very important, because it is all of us and we all need to be a part of the effort,” he said.

He urged staff under the Nation umbrella to “bring your cheque books and we will match whatever you contribute”.

The NATION currently has multimedia journalist Anmar Goodridge-Boyce stationed in The Bahamas, working alongside sister company The Express newspaper out of Trinidad and Tobago. However, Shaw indicated it was likely that another team would be sent to do additional coverage of the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian and its effect on the people of Grand Bahama and Abaco. (RA)
