Rock Hard cement donates a sling of cement to St. Benedict's Day Nursery in St. Vincent

So said Director of the Nursery Sis Nyra Anne Pajotte when the donation was made at the Georgetown-based institution last Tuesday.

Sis Nyra Anne Pajotte thanked Gonsalves "for honouring his commitment,” adding, "We are a long way from finishing, but this sling of cement will go far in our efforts… We are grateful for the help …We are hoping and praying for more support… We are doing this in an act of faith.”

The donation was made possible through the instrumentality of attorney and Director of the Grassroot Tennis Club Grant Connell, whom Sis Nyra also thanked.

"I must also thank Mr (Grant) Connell for initiating the donation of the cement from Mr Gonsalves…Too,  the contractor (Trevor Lawrence) has also been understanding with the project and is doing his best for us as well”, Pajotte added.

She noted that the undertaking, despite the many challenges, " all for the children; we want to give them the best”.

Gonsalves, for his part, said that his company was proud to be associated with the project.

"Since Rock Hard cement has been introduced to St Vincent and the Grenadines, we have influenced the reduction in price which is in the interest of our people”, Gonsalves commented.

The St Benedict’s Day Nursery caters to 12 children. It was opened on 25th July, 1963, with an Infant Hospital added by 13th February, 1968.  It was spearheaded by Canadian catholic priest  Fr. Rollie Roberts.

Meanwhile, Connell also took the opportunity to report that a former coach of the club, Deron Grant, had contributed $1000 to kidney patient Clara Smart John.

Grant is currently a tennis coach in Oman.
