    ST.JOHN'S Antigua,  April 4th,  2012   --  Digicel in collaboration with the Government of Antigua and Barbuda presented a check for EC $50 000 to the Antigua and Barbuda Athletic Association (ABAA) in support of local athletes participating in the 2012 CARIFTA games being held in Bermuda.

     

    President of the ABAA, Dr Rodney Williams thanked the Government and Digicel for supporting the country’s young and upcoming athletes, who will be representing Antigua and Barbuda at not only CARIFTA but a slew of other upcoming major competitions.

     

    “We are very grateful for this contribution because this year we have a number of activities inclusive of the CARIFTA games in Bermuda,” Dr Williams said. “We also have games in El Salvador, we have the world youth games and we also have our national championship.

     

    All these competitions require funding, and in as much as we may try to raise funds, the level of funding that is required are more than we can raise ourselves.”

     

    Gerard Ashmore, General Manager, Digicel OECS North, said Digicel will continue to support the Antigua and Barbuda Athletic Association going forward and will also be holding a number of fund raising activities in support of  sprinting sensation Jamol  Pilgrim, the nation’s only paralympic athlete.

     

    “Digicel has long been a supporter of athletics from ground roots level, and we are delighted to support the Antigua and Barbuda Athletics Association.” Ashmore said.
