Massy United In­sur­ance Is In The Spirit Of Giv­ing

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Tra­di­tion­ally, at Christ­mas time, Massy United would ex­press their ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the sup­port and pa­tron­age of their clien­tele with a to­ken gift of thanks. This year, how­ever, the de­ci­sion was made to cel­e­brate the spirit of the Sea­son of Giv­ing by shar­ing with those less for­tu­nate in the com­mu­nity they serve.

There is an old adage, which very ac­cu­rately sums up a much cher­ished value in the Caribbean – “It takes a vil­lage to raise a child”. Massy United In­sur­ance de­cided to make a fi­nan­cial do­na­tion of Three Thou­sand Dol­lars ($3,000.00) to the Sir John Comp­ton Me­mo­rial Foun­da­tion, a char­ity formed in Novem­ber 2009, aimed at fa­cil­i­tat­ing ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties for St Lu­cians. Seen here is An­thony Ber­gasse, Chair­man of United In­sur­ance Agents (Saint Lucia) Ltd, Agents for Massy United In­sur­ance, Faye Miller, Gen­eral Man­ager of the com­pany and Di­rec­tor Hol­lis Bris­tol pre­sent­ing their cheque to a very ap­pre­cia­tive Lady Jan­ice Comp­ton, wife of the late Sir John Comp­ton and Bernard Theobalds, one of the trustees of the Foun­da­tion.

On the oc­ca­sion of the cheque pre­sen­ta­tion, Lady Comp­ton ex­pressed her grat­i­tude to the com­pany de­scrib­ing the do­na­tion as a ‘God-send’ which she has ear­marked for CXC ex­am­i­na­tion fees of a num­ber of needy stu­dents.

An­thony Ber­gasse wished the Foun­da­tion the very best in their con­tin­ued ef­forts to trans­form the lives of Saint Lu­cian youth.
