NVCO needs to raise $140k to keep projects going

| 30/09/2014

(CNS): One of Cayman’s leading not for profit organisations that focuses on the care, education and well –being of children and families in need of support is getting ready for its annual fundraiser and needs to raise $140,000 to pay for its projects. Each year the NCVO holds a Radio/Telethon for the money needed to run the Nadine Andreas Residential Foster Home, Miss Nadine’s Pre-school, the Jack and Jill Nursery, the John R Gray Memorial Fund and the Caring Cousins Lunch Support Programme. The NCVO relies heavily on this event for the cash to take care of the increasing number of children in real need, right here in Cayman.

Despite the country's exceptionally high standard of living many children across the islands are going hungry or are in need of care, protection and support. But battling like many other charities to get the money it needs to keep the essential programmes going, the chairman and chief executive officer said the NCVO is dependent upon the generosity of the business community, trusts, and individuals and the hope is that the support will continue, particularly given the very tough economic times.

With the increasing needs throughout the community the charity hopes to raise CI$140,000 to help to fund the projects which in turn allows us to support hundreds of children and community members every year.

This year the evening’s entertainment extravaganza, made possible by local musicians who donate their time and perform for free, will be held on Saturday 25 October at 7pm onwards at the Prospect Playhouse and broadcast live on Cayman 27 and Radio Cayman.

All donors and those pledging support can donate live during the event or they can be made ahead of the televised evening of entertainment at the NCVO  Once a donation is  received it will be recorded and pledges will be announced on the evening of the event unless donors wish to remain anonymous.
