Gift of Play­ground Equip­ment to CGDC

The Star (St. Lucia) - - COMMENT - By Michele-Lau­ren Hack­shaw

On Thurs­day 28th July the Ro­tary Club of Gros Islet for­mally handed over to the Child Guid­ance De­vel­op­ment Cen­tre (CGDC) spe­cialised play­ground equip­ment for chil­dren with spe­cial needs.

For the past twenty-three years the Ro­tary Club of Gros Islet has hosted an an­nual Char­ity Golf Tour­na­ment. One hun­dred per­cent of the pro­ceeds have been in­vested in the com­mu­nity through charitable projects. In the Ro­tary year 2015-2016 over $170,000 and count­less hours of ser­vice were ex­pended on projects through­out Saint Lu­cia.

Pres­i­dent of the Ro­tary Club of Gros Islet, Astrid Mon­de­sir, stated that the project of spe­cialised play­ground equip­ment fits neatly with the club’s 2015-2016 Ro­tary theme ‘Be­ing a gift to the world’.

The play­ground equip­ment ranges from a swing set, a slide set, a play­house and a mu­si­cal wall to a large pit with air-filled soft plas­tic balls. The equip­ment stands on a cush­ioned sur­face in case a child should fall. With this equip­ment, the chil­dren can now en­joy their play time to the fullest with a fa­cil­ity that fully ac­com­mo­dates them.
