Press Release

The Private Sector Commission, less than two weeks ago, commenced a toy drive aimed at bringing a touch of Christmas cheer to the worst off of the children of laid-off sugar workers in the Skeldon community.

This drive, at the insistence of members, expanded to become a major toy and hamper drive with members giving generously towards the effort. The Commission now plans to extend the hamper drive to the worst-off families of the other Estates, beginning with Wales next week.

According to the Commission, “the Skeldon workers were first targeted due to the existence of a strong partner in the community - Sectoral Member, the Upper Corentyne Chamber of Commission and Industry - which was equipped with information on the workers and willing and able to assist with distribution”. The UCCCI will also host a simple party at which the children will receive their gifts.
