On Wednesday, April 16, Scotiabank made a presentation of $1,500 to the first placed Dickson family of Barrouallie, and the Samuel family of Chateaubelair who placed third, at the bank’s Kingstown Branch.

A cheque for $1,000 was also handed over by Camille Crichton of Professional Secretarial and Consultancy Services to the Morris Family of Spring Village, for placing second.

Trophies and medals were donated by Moussa and Sons.

The anti-crime sports campaign took place in the form of a softball cricket tournament, which had families from 16 communities competing in four zones: leeward, windward, central and the Grenadines, with the finals taking place at the Arnos Vale sports facility on April 6.

The campaign is an initiative created to increase the bonding process and communication among family members and other relatives through one of the more popular sports in the country.

Scotiabank representative Krystal Medford, who was present at the finals, commended all the teams for their performances on the day, and credited the Dickson family for a well-deserved first place win, and also praised the Ministry of National Mobilization for the initiative.

“I think it was a very creative way to bring families together, especially the youth.

“You guys did a wonderful job, I think everybody did a great job and we congratulate you for playing hard and placing in the top three,” Medford said.

Scotiabank plays a major role in youth development through its Scotiabank Bright Future Programme, by supporting education, arts and culture, as well as sports and environmental projects.

The Scotiabank Bright Future Programme also reaches out to underprivileged and abused children, as part of its corporate social responsibility.
