UK Expat rushes to help Grenadian charities shortly after Tilman Thomas victory: $30,000 EC to thousand to Foundation for Needy Students

Savvy Grenada is contributing 30 thousand dollars to assist Grenada’s needy students. The donation was made a few days after Tilman Thomas’ victorious landslide in the Spice Isle. It was given to the Grenada Carriacou and Petite Martinique Foundation for Needy Students. The Foundation for Needy Students provides books, school uniforms, transportation assistance, lunches, and examination assistance to students whose families cannot afford to provide these basics. The aim of the Foundation is to ensure that poverty does not create a barrier to the educational aspirations of Grenada’s children.

The money donated to the Foundation will go towards the building of an office and centre for the co ordination of the Needy Fund. Resident Director of Savvy Grenada Mr. Richard Hallam says that Savvy Grenada has always contributed directly to good causes, especially those which impact the lives of children.

We have seen for ourselves the excellent work that the Grenada Carriacou and Petite Martinique Foundation has done. Our Chairman Mr. Peter de Savary is a strong and passionate supporter of children’s charity work and he has a high regard for the Foundation and its members. Therefore we know that our donation will be used wisely,” Hallam remarked.

In accepting the donation Secretary of the Foundation Lady Williams said, ?We thank Mr. de Savary through Mr. Hallam very much for his very generous donation. This will bring the project much closer to completion.?

Savvy Grenada has donated thousands of dollars this year to charities and good causes which benefit young people. So far for the year, contributions have been given to several causes including the Grenada Olympic Association, The Grenada Amateur Swimming Association, The Bonaire Government School, Grenada Diabetes Association and a variety of other sports committees.
