The Up­town Gar­dens Girls’ Cen­tre was iden­ti­fied for as­sis­tance be­cause of its long stand­ing ser­vice to at-risk young ladies.

In her brief re­marks Mrs. Prisca St. Paul of the Up­ton Gar­dens Girls’ Cen­tre ex­pressed her pro­found grat­i­tude for the timely do­na­tion and stated that the ul­ti­mate goal is to pro­vide full-time lodg­ing for the young ladies so that the cen­tre can be­come a fully-fledged ju­ve­nile home.

The rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Renwick & Com­pany Ltd pledged the com­pany’s fur­ther sup­port through as­sis­tance with the agri­cul­ture pro­gramme and will part­ner with lo­cal club VSADC to do­nate football gear and equip­ment to the girls.

This do­na­tion from Renwick & Com­pany Ltd was co­or­di­nated by Miss Sharon Wil­liams who is a ma­jor bene­fac­tor for the Up­ton Gar­den Girls’ Cen­tre.
