Anonymous donation to Brac Day Care

| 10/08/2009

(CNS): Little ones at the government-owned Cayman Brac Day Care Centre can stay busy and active outside again thanks to two anonymous donations of playground equipment to replace in part what was destroyed during Hurricane Paloma in November 2008. PTA President Lynne Walton said they were extremely grateful to the donors but said more is need to replace the lost equipment, which was donated by the PTA after much hard work raising funds. “Hope springs eternal in our quest for additional donations to get the Day Care back on its feet,” she said, explaining that they still don’t have sufficient funds to install more permanent play equipment or address the landscaping and shade requirements of the area.

Walton said that this much needed donation involved a huge effort by a number of people. “PWD Deputy Director Stephen Brown, our invaluable organizer in Grand Cayman, and his team of volunteers dismantled the equipment and delivered it to Thompsons shipping, Thompsons Shipping sponsored the shipment and the Port Authority waived its fees as well. Cayman Brac PWD volunteered its services on this end to pick up the equipment and set it up,” Walton said, adding that the donation of items was coordinated by Liz Walton, and Little Darlings in Grand Cayman was also very helpful.

Other people who assisted include the Beautification Committee, chaired by Liz Walton, who assisted with landscaping in the playground, the Rotary Club of Cayman Brac which gave a cash donation of $2000, and the Department of Agriculture and Tibbetts Enterprises which donated materials for grow boxes for the children’s garden.
