Wilkie Cumberbatch Primary proves old adage on giving & receiving by doing both via CDB

A primary school in the Pine has given and received, thus attesting to both sides of the old adage “…better to give than receive…” when they helped a family victim to fire late last year, yet at the same time earning a new photocopier via the Corporate Communications Department of the Caribbean Development Bank.

Monica La Bennett of CDB’s Corporate Planning Division explained how the regional financial developer sought out Wilkie Cumberbatch as its personal emblem of Corporate Responsibility {CLICK ON FOLLOWING ICON FOR FULL AUDIO};-

The replacement of the worn-out risograph came just in time, according to Wilkie Cumberbatch’s Science Teacher Cherilyn Christie, who revealed the primary school sent out a swatch of letters to the neighbourhood in the hopes a company would answer their distress call – CDB was the first to respond in a positive manner.
