Pink ladies serve up cash for school meals

| 10/01/2010

(CNS): Following their fundraising efforts throughout 2009, the Pink Ladies Volunteer Corps are putting the cash towards keeping Cayman’s kids well fed in 2010 by donating funds to the Lighthouse School and various local school lunch programmes. According to Principal Carla Bodden, the Lighthouse School will be using the money towards providing breakfast and lunch to students who would otherwise not receive these meals, Creative Arts Programmes and ASDAN Programmes.

Funds were also donated to Mise en Place to support the school lunch programmes at John Gray High School and Red Bay Primary School.  Sean Collins of Mise en Place explained that the Pink Cheque received would be used to provide sponsored lunches at these schools in addition to a weekly breakfast on Fridays.

Funds are raised by the Pink Ladies Volunteer Corps through the operation of the Pink Hibiscus Coffee Shop at George Town Hospital. Breakfasts, lunches, sandwiches, salads, snacks and drinks are available daily and telephone orders are welcome (244 2661) for eat in or take out.  All funds raised are donated back into the Community.
