While the New National Party Government is slow in its promise of delivery to the entire nation, the Carriacou and Petite Martinique chapter of the party continues to deliver the goodwill and great cheer to scores of children and senior persons as part of their annual treat.
The weekend prior to Christmas the party’s office on Victoria Street was swamped with hundreds of children who were presented with toys and snacks as part of the annual pre Christmas exercise. The children, accompanied by their parents/ guardians, were all beaming with smiles and words of appreciation at the quality of toys their received.
On the following day Sunday the party office was then taken over by the senior citizens who were served with a balanced and nutritious meal. Those unable to attend the exercise had their lunch delivered. While dining at the party office the senior citizens were entertained with live string band music from Donstan Lawrence and Leroy Sylvester and their team.
The Parliamentary Representative Elvin Nimrod, said that despite the tough financial challenges they continue to recognise the importance of bringing a smile to the face of the children and an opportunity to bring senior citizens together to reminisce while sharing in the togetherness of the season.
