The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Bank of Saint Lu­cia (BOSL) has of­fi­cially signed on the dot­ted line for another con­sec­u­tive year in sup­port of the is­land’s premier cul­tural show­piece, St. Lu­cia Car­ni­val 2015. BOSL has re­tained its bronze spon­sor­ship of Panorama, slated for the Beause­jour Cricket Grounds on Fri­day July 17, and King & Queen of the Bands Com­pe­ti­tion to be held at the Na­tional Cul­tural Cen­tre Grounds on Thurs­day July 16.

Gen­eral Man­ager for Bank of Saint Lu­cia, Ha­dyn Git­tens said, “The Bank is proud to make a ster­ling con­tri­bu­tion to the arts and cul­ture – hav­ing signed on as bronze spon­sor of St. Lu­cia Car­ni­val 2015. The fo­cus of our sup­port is on two crit­i­cal as­pects of the fes­ti­val - the cre­ative di­men­sion and youth de­vel­op­ment, the lat­ter be­ing a key pil­lar of our Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity man­date. St. Lu­cia Car­ni­val con­tin­ues to be a ma­jor eco­nomic driver both at the com­mu­nity and na­tional level. As a so­cially re­spon­si­ble in­sti­tu­tion, we must con­tinue to sup­port ac­tiv­i­ties which de­velop our com­mu­ni­ties, safe­guard our cul­tural her­itage and con­trib­ute to the bet­ter­ment of all St. Lu­cians.”

In ad­di­tion to its bronze spon­sor­ship of the two highly an­tic­i­pated events, BOSL is a col­lat­eral spon­sor of Ju­nior Car­ni­val and Ju­nior Ca­lypso 2015, as well as con­tin­u­ing its com­mit­ment to RC Jam 2015. Each of the win­ning young ca­lyp­so­ni­ans re­ceived BOSL bank ac­counts - as part of the in­sti­tu­tion’s con­tin­ued ef­forts to en­cour­age young peo­ple to adopt good sav­ing habits early on in life. The Bank re­mains a com­mit­ted part­ner in the ad­vance­ment and preser­va­tion of the arts and cul­ture of Saint Lu­cia.
