Sentinel Security Limited of Lamaha Street, Georgetown, Peter Lewis Construction Firm of Hampshire Village and the Georgetown-based Farfan and Mendes Limited were the donors to the dynamic organisation, which recently received a national award, the Medal of Service, from the government of Guyana for its outstanding contribution to sport, education and community development.
Long-serving Secretary/CEO, Hilbert Foster, hailed the contribution of the three companies and stated the RHTY&SC is seeking to obtain a total of 500 trophies for its planned list of activities. The trophies would be used to organise sport events like cricket, football, volleyball, basketball and chess, while the RHTY&SC in April would also be hosting its 26th annual awards ceremony where over 40 club members would be honoured.
The organisation would also be organising numerous ‘Say Yes to Education’ programmes as it strives to promote the importance of education to youths. Foster disclosed that a total of 60 educational programmes like debates, essays, posters, spelling bees, public speaking and career choices competitions will be held for students in the Ancient Country.
He expressed gratitude to Noreen Gaskin of Sentinel Security, Peter Lewis of Peter Lewis Construction and Onai Vasconcellos of Farfan and Mendes Limited for their continued assistance to the RHTY&SC.
Meanwhile, Priya Rampersaud, Berbice’s Sentinel Security Manager, in handing over the trophies on behalf of her company, stated that her Chief Executive Officer is always willing to partner with the RHTY&SC, as it is an organisation which always upholds the meaning of the word “excellence” and is a role model for other organisation’s in Guyana. Lewis, a long-time donor to the club, expressed delight at being able to contribute to the hosting of youth-related activities.
