Last year the service club managed to deliver 32 baskets  but with the help of  Camana Bay and the Regatta Office Park they hope to help more families. Colleen Cummings, Assistant Property Manager for Dart Realty said that instead of giving Christmas baskets to the firm’s office tenants the funds would diverted to help those who are truly in need. “Christmas is the season for giving and sharing time with our loved ones, and we wholeheartedly support the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens in their efforts to help those who may not be able to afford to prepare a holiday meal for their family,” she said.

Lion Belinda Blessitt Vincent, President of the LCTG said that this initiative has impacted many families in the community and has allowed the Club to make a positive difference in these lives and the sponsorship will allow the Club to provide for more families this year. The Lions Club is now collecting the names of families who are in need and would benefit from this effort.  “Please contact us at lctg1993@gmail.com if you or you know someone who would like to benefit from this initiative,” Vincent said.

Ed Semans, Senior Property Manager for Dart Realty (Cayman) Ltd said Dart was keenly aware that there are many families in the Cayman Islands who are struggling to make ends meet, let alone give their children a memorable Christmas.
“As a community we have a responsibility to assist these families and Dart Realty is proud to play its part by helping several worthy local charities and organisations to continue their amazing work at this time of year,” he added.
