Students, staff and supporters of the St Winifred’s School in Pine Hill, St Michael, donated $5 000 towards the ongoing relief and reconstruction efforts in the impacted islands of The Bahamas.

Students Hayley Croney and Aerin Hill presented the cheque to Ronald Jackson, Executive Director, of the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency during general assembly at the school on Monday.

Both students were applauded for their initiative and kind contribution in designing custom bracelets, which were sold to the school community in efforts to raise funds for those impacted by Hurricane Dorian in The Bahamas.

In accepting the donation, Jackson expressed gratitude to the students and encouraged them to continue in the spirit of giving.

“This demonstration of kindness and love to our brothers and sisters in The Bahamas is encouraging and should be applauded. Your contribution will go towards helping those individuals who are still in shelters post Hurricane Dorian to help them recover and start building back their lives and livelihoods,” he said.
