(EMU) – St. Kitts, December 17, 2018 -- Toys and gift packages were distributed yesterday, 16 December, to students, parents and teachers of the Bronte Welsh Primary School.
Through the generosity of Darrell and Cherrilyn Nedd, sponsors of this event, the students from kindergarten through grades 1 and 2 received an extra Christmas present this year.
With the aim to ensure that the children have a positive experience at Christmas, Mrs. Nedd divulged that this venture became a reality through the assistance and donations of family and friends of their company NED Solutions.
“We hosted a brunch in Houston with family and friends of NED Solutions and instead of giving each other gifts we asked that they purchase gifts for you,” explained Mrs. Nedd to the students. “We gave them a list of items we would like for you to have and they purchased and assisted with wrapping and the shipment of the gifts to St. Kitts.”
“This is an opportunity for persons who left St. Kitts and Nevis many years ago to give back. This is saying that they have not forgotten their roots or where they came from,” announced the Permanent Secretary of Education, William Hodge. Addressing the gathering at the toy drive he thanked Mr. and Mrs. Nedd for their generosity on behalf of the Ministry.
Mrs. Nedd disclosed that Bronte Welsh Primary holds a special place in her heart as she was born in Challengers. She stated that had it not been for her parents moving her to the United States at a young age, she too would have been a product of the Bronte Welsh Primary School.
The founders also expressed special thanks to the Business and Professional Womens’ group which assisted with the facilitation of the gifts when they arrived on island.
In addition to gifts for children, families and the principal and teachers also received gifts of household items including appliances.
