Committed to children
The children at staff at Sayes Court Children’s Home received some gifts for the new year, thanks to Barbados Labour Party candidate for Christ Church East.
On New Year’s Day, candidate Wilfred Abrahams, along with young members Lorenzo Harewood and Tamesha Watkins, presented house parent Carolyn Hoyte with a toaster, an electric kettle, plates, cups, teacups, cutlery as well as gifts for the 10 children who reside there.
The children were also special guests at the branch’s Christmas Party.
At the presentation, Abrahams expressed his interest in continuing a close association with the Children’s Home and his intention “to ensure that these children feel loved year round”.
He also said: “This is not just about Christmas, it represents my commitment to the children and young people in this community. I believe in starting my year as I intend to continue it. On the first day of the year I always do something by which I intend to define my year. Having met the aunties and children of the home at the Christmas party I felt that the best way to start 2013 was in giving to those less fortunate and putting smiles on little faces.”
At the presentation Hoyte thanked Abrahams for remembering the children at this time of the year and said that the donations and the gifts would be put to good use.
The candidate also delivered a cooked ham to the Home on Christmas Day.
