Flow Christ­mas Com­mu­nity Projects Kick Off In La­borie

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The trans­for­ma­tion of La­borie vil­lage is nearly com­plete, thanks to the in­ter­ven­tion and sup­port of the is­land's lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions ser­vice provider, Flow.

As part of its Christ­mas cam­paign this year, Flow is un­der­tak­ing a se­ries of projects that will have a last­ing im­pact in ev­ery cor­ner of Saint Lu­cia. Projects were iden­ti­fied by the lo­cal Con­stituency Coun­cils, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Min­istry of Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment. Part­ners so far in­clude out­source com­pany STACS, along­side Har­ris Paints, Caribbean Met­als Ltd. and Peter and Com­pany Dis­tri­bu­tion.

The La­borie project, just in time for the cel­e­bra­tion of Festen Labowi, cov­ers restora­tion and re­paint­ing of the square's walls, gazebo and foun­tain, in ad­di­tion to re­fur­bish­ment of the park benches. The work, over some six days, from pre­par­ing the sur­faces to wood­work and paint­ing, was all done by STACS and Flow man­age­ment and em­ploy­ees, in con­junc­tion with the Con­stituency Coun­cil.

Win­ston Bicar, Clerk of the La­borie/Augier Con­stituency Coun­cil, com­mended the work of Flow and their part­ner com­pa­nies.

“On be­half of the peo­ple of La­borie, I must ap­plaud them for this mas­sive ef­fort,” he said. “They lit­er­ally worked night and day to make sure the venue was ready for Fri­day. The re­sult is ab­so­lutely beau­ti­ful, and we thank Flow for be­ing such a car­ing and com­mit­ted cor­po­rate cit­i­zen."

Mr. Bicar also joined Flow Coun­try Man­ager, Chris Wil­liams, as he pre­sented early Christ­mas ham­pers to less for­tu­nate fam­i­lies. The re­cip­i­ents, from Desmond Col­ly­more Drive, Banse La Grace and Augier, were se­lected by the Con­stituency Coun­cil. All ex­pressed their thanks to Flow, Peter and Com­pany and part­ners for their gen­eros­ity.

As well as its com­mu­nity project, Flow will also be gift­ing one cus­tomer from La­borie with a cash prize this Christ­mas. One win­ner will be se­lected from each of Saint Lu­cia's 10 dis­tricts, and there will also be two grand prizes – a Full Ser­vice Bun­dle with 12 months of free ser­vices, and a $13,000 Smart Home Tech­nol­ogy Bun­dle, in­clu­sive of a smart TV, smart­phone, com­puter tablet and more.

To qual­ify for the prize draws, cus­tomers can Top Up at least $15, buy any Flow mo­bile hand­set or sign up for se­lected combo plans on Saint Lu­cia's fastest 4G LTE net­work. They can also get in with a chance to win some­thing ex­tra for Christ­mas by sign­ing up for land­line, post­paid mo­bile, broad­band or TV, up­grade an ex­ist­ing ser­vice or pay any Flow bill in full and on time.

Cus­tomers can also take ad­van­tage of sig­nif­i­cant dis­counts on mo­bile hand­sets, with free Blue­tooth speak­ers ac­com­pa­ny­ing se­lected mod­els. Mo­bile cus­tomers will be treated to free dou­ble data whilst TV cus­tomers are able to en­joy dis­counts, spe­cial of­fers and free views of se­lected pack­ages in­clud­ing Fox Pre­mium, the HBO Movie Pack, and the Flow Sports Pack.

The next planned Flow Christ­mas com­mu­nity project is the paint­ing of a com­fort sta­tion on Bay Street in Gros Islet. Ful­fill­ing the Flow promise of “build­ing, con­nect­ing and serv­ing”, the 2017 Flow Christ­mas cam­paign in­cludes well over $100,000 worth of give­aways, gifts, cash and prizes, com­mu­nity giv­ing and dis­counts.
