The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Dig­i­cel con­tin­ues to give back and brighten the run-up to Christ­mas for res­i­dents of com­mu­ni­ties across Saint Lucia. Dig­i­cel’s man­age­ment team and staff con­verged on the com­mu­nity of Soufriere on Satur­day Novem­ber 21st to make the Christ­mas sea­son brighter for res­i­dents and for the six fam­i­lies who suf­fered ma­jor loss as a re­sult of the dev­as­tat­ing fire on Oc­to­ber 24th.

Team Dig­i­cel, as part of the com­pany’s “Brighten Your Christ­mas Cam­paign” vis­ited the west coast com­mu­ni­ties of Anse La Raye, Ca­naries and Soufriere offering pa­trons and res­i­dents hand­set dis­counts of over 50%, dou­ble top up, free gifts and prize give­aways. The team went through each com­mu­nity in mo­tor­cade fash­ion with the Dig­i­cel train cli­max­ing in the com­mu­nity of Soufriere where Dig­i­cel bright­ened the lives of the fire vic­tims who lost their be­long­ings in the Oc­to­ber fire.

The Soufriere square was bustling with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Dig­i­cel and with res­i­dents as they par­tic­i­pated in the Christ­mas pro­mo­tion sale and awaited the pre­sen­ta­tions of cheques to the fire vic­tims to­tal­ing EC$30,000. Gre­gory Ge­orge, Smith Bruneau, Dara Charles, Joseph Gil­bert, Mar­cel­lus Jn. Pierre and John Bar­nette were among the re­cip­i­ents who re­ceived cheque do­na­tions from Dig­i­cel. Each re­cip­i­ent ex­pressed heart­felt thanks for the con­tri­bu­tions which are geared at as­sist­ing them in re­turn­ing to a life of nor­malcy.

Siob­han James-Alexan­der, Coun­try Man­ager-Dig­i­cel St. Lucia said, “We have tra­di­tion­ally gone into the com­mu­ni­ties to brighten res­i­dents’ Christ­mas, and this year is no dif­fer­ent as we go from one com­mu­nity to the next! We at Dig­i­cel are al­ways pre­pared to pro­vide as­sis­tance to the com­mu­ni­ties we serve and to per­sons in need.

“Upon hear­ing of the dev­as­tat­ing fire in the Soufriere town, we felt obliged to as­sist the vic­tims and help brighten their Christ­mas. We do hope that the do­na­tion made to them to­day will as­sist in re­cov­er­ing the items which they have lost and hope­fully they, too, can have a brighter Christ­mas and enjoy the sea­son.”
