Roy­al­ton White Sands sup­ports Blos­som Gar­dens Child Care Fa­cil­ity

Jamaica Gleaner - - HOSPITALITY JAMAICA -

CHIL­DREN AT the Blos­som Gar­dens Child Care Fa­cil­ity in Mon­tego Bay on Wednes­day, Septem­ber 14, felt the warmth of mem­bers of staff of the Roy­al­ton White Sands Re­sort in Trelawny through the do­na­tion of toys and other items.

The re­sort de­liv­ered sev­eral toys to the chil­dren and also pro­vided them with re­fresh­ments in what turned out to be an emo­tional visit to the fa­cil­ity.

Hu­man re­sources di­rec­tor at Roy­al­ton White Sands, An­ge­line An­der­son, said the visit and do­na­tion formed a part of the re­sort’s com­mu­nity re­la­tions pro­gramme and en­sured that staff mem­bers were given an op­por­tu­nity to visit and spend qual­ity time with the chil­dren and mem­bers of staff.

“The fa­cil­ity is very clean. The kids were adorable, which re­sulted in some of us be­com­ing at­tached to them, and leav­ing the home was an emo­tional ex­pe­ri­ence. We just could not pull our­selves away from th­ese chil­dren, who are so warm, beau­ti­ful, and adorable,” stated An­der­son.

SPREAD­ING RE­SOURCES

The ho­tel’s hu­man re­sources di­rec­tor said the ho­tel plans to con­tinue to give to the home reg­u­larly. “We are on a mis­sion to spread the re­sources which the re­sort has been blessed with – through the kind do­na­tion of our team mem­bers, the cor­po­rate of­fices and, very im­por­tantly, our guests. We are de­ter­mined to make a dif­fer­ence – not only in the par­ish of Trelawny, but where we think th­ese re­sources are needed,” she said.

Com­mu­nity re­la­tions man­ager Deb­bie Bai­ley, who was part of the vis­it­ing team, de­scribed it as an ex­pe­ri­ence of a lifetime to fi­nally be able to par­tic­i­pate in an ac­tiv­ity at the home, which is well known through­out Ja­maica.

She said: “I have on many oc­ca­sions read about, and heard of, Blos­som Gar­dens Child Care Fa­cil­ity and be­ing there gave me a new think­ing of the tremen­dous work that the care­givers are de­liv­er­ing to the chil­dren. Par­tic­i­pat­ing in the feed­ing ses­sion took me down a road which I will al­ways trea­sure.”

As part of its com­mu­nity re­la­tions pro­gramme, Roy­al­ton White Sands con­tin­ues to seek out new av­enues in which it can sup­port com­mu­ni­ties and the peo­ple who serve the com­pany.
