It also has an ex­tended youth pro­gramme and of­fers th­ese ser­vices and oth­ers to a num­ber of schools is­land­wide.

Mr. Glenn Wil­son ex­pressed his ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the do­na­tion stat­ing, “We are hugely grate­ful to have been one of M&C's ben­e­fi­cia­ries this year. We thank the or­ga­ni­za­tion, board mem­bers, man­age­ment and staff for their un­wa­ver­ing sup­port through­out the years in help­ing St. John Saint Lucia be the dif­fer­ence be­tween a life lost and a life saved.

"The do­na­tion given will be go­ing to­wards our work at our head­quar­ters, help­ing us to make some ur­gent re­pairs to our roof so we can con­tinue to pro­vide a safe haven for our vol­un­teers and also a train­ing room for our cus­tomers.”

Ms. Fern Wil­son, on be­half of M&C Group of Com­pa­nies, ap­plauded St. John Saint Lucia for its ser­vice to St. Lucia for over 80 years and stated that the sup­port, ser­vices and train­ing that it pro­vides is im­mea­sur­able to so­ci­ety. She ex­pressed her hope that the fa­cil­i­ties would be re­paired as quickly as pos­si­ble.
