Jamaica Gleaner - - TODAY - Keisha.hill@glean­erjm.com

Her­maine Metcalfe, chair­man of the St Pa­trick’s Foun­da­tion, said the com­mu­nity ap­pre­ci­ated the as­sis­tance from UPS as it would en­sure the sus­tain­abil­ity and de­vel­op­ment of vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren and com­mu­ni­ties.

“UPS is com­mit­ted to so­cial and com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment and be­lieves in giv­ing to in­sti­tu­tions like St Pa­trick’s Foun­da­tion that are cat­a­lysts for change. Our ob­jec­tives are sim­i­lar be­cause we be­lieve in im­part­ing rel­e­vant skills and op­por­tu­ni­ties to res­i­dents of low-in­come com­mu­ni­ties, thereby mak­ing pos­si­ble their so­cial and eco­nomic ad­vance­ment,” Metcalfe said.

St Pa­trick’s Foun­da­tion is a non-profit, hu­man and com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment or­gan­i­sa­tion es­tab­lished in 1994, that serves the com­mu­ni­ties of Olympic Gar­dens, Water­house, Seav­iew Gar­dens and River­ton.

“The use of com­put­ers at these lo­ca­tions is im­por­tant be­cause many of those we serve do not have ac­cess to these fa­cil­i­ties. They need ac­cess to the In­ter­net to con­duct their re­search and to as­sist with their home­work. It is im­por­tant for their stud­ies, es­pe­cially with most of the pro­grammes that we of­fer,” Metcalfe added. TWENTY-FIVE LUCKY en­trants won a to­tal of $1,250,000 in cash prizes in Oc­to­ber, just over two weeks into the J Wray and Nephew’s ‘Q is the Key to Cash 4 Life’ com­pe­ti­tion.

Twenty per­sons won daily cash prizes of $10,000 in Oc­to­ber and five lucky in­di­vid­u­als won big with the monthly draw. There are Kimberly Blair ($500,000), Nigel Gold­bourne ($250,000), Suzette Cameron ($150,000), Dwayne Rose ($100,000) and Foyieka Richards ($50,000)

The 14-week com­pe­ti­tion, fea­tur­ing dance­hall’s ‘Real Rich’ sen­sa­tion Tanto Blacks, will award nearly $30 mil­lion in prize money be­tween Oc­to­ber 2016 and Jan­uary 2017 to win­ning play­ers who pur­chase ‘Qs’ (200 ml) of Wray & Nephew White Over­proof Rum, Charley’s JB Over­proof Rum, Ap­ple­ton Spe­cial, or Cam­pari, peel their la­bels, text the codes to the num­ber pro­vided and are se­lected.

Kim­ber­ley Blair, first-place win­ner for the month of Oc­to­ber, said the win­nings could not have come at a bet­ter time, as her fam­ily had just re­ceived bad news be­fore she re­ceived the win­ning text mes­sage.

“Oh God! Me feel like mi want faint be­cause mi just over ex­cited! My sis­ter died and the money just come at the right time,” Blair, who bought her Q at Joe’s Bar in Heart Ease dis­trict, Man­dev­ille, said.

Nigel Gold­bourne, sec­ond­place win­ner, also re­joiced over his cash prize of $250,000. “I feel very, very proud and good,” he said.

EN­RICH­ING LIVES

Pi­etro Gramegna, mar­ket­ing man­ager, J Wray & Nephew Lim­ited, said that just as Tanto Blacks lives ‘real rich’, the team at J. Wray & Nephew Lim­ited as­pires to see some of their cus­tomers live ‘real rich’ for the Christ­mas sea­son, which was the rea­son for launch­ing the com­pe­ti­tion with Tanto Blacks as the am­bas­sador.

“We are pleased to know that our ‘Q is the Key to Cash 4 Life’ com­pe­ti­tion has been en­rich­ing the lives of Ja­maicans less than a month af­ter it be­gan,” Gramegna said.

“For the last two years, be­tween the months of Oc­to­ber and Jan­uary, we have com­mit­ted to giv­ing back to our cus­tomers through the ‘Q is the Key’ com­pe­ti­tion, in which we gave in­stant cash prizes to those who en­tered and mil­lions to two lucky win­ners in grand prizes,” he added.
