A Golden Oldies dinner dance raised CI$500 for the Pines Retirement Home.

Mauva Wilson, Chairperson of the St. Georges Anglican Church Outreach and Missions Committee, said, “We had a fundraising effort in October, a Golden Oldies dinner-dance and we decided to give the Pines part of the proceeds, to go towards buying medical equipment. Our fundraising event wasn’t as successful as we expected so we can only give CI$500.”

Secretary to the Pines manager, Terrie Farrington received the cheque from Outreach and Missions Committee Treasurer Stephen Atherley, who was joined by Ms Wilson and Committee member Joan Henry in meeting with Pines staff and residents.

Terrie Farrington, secretary to the Pines Manager, said “On behalf of the Pines I would really like to thank you very much for this wonderful donation and particularly for the fact that you would like to have a fundraiser on our behalf is very much appreciated. Any donation that we get is really put to good use, and we can only say thank you very much from the bottom of our heart.”
