DeFreitas thanked Smith for the donation on behalf of the Union. She said it will be very useful in its tournament against the British Virgin Islands.

Captain of the St.Vincent and the Grenadines Rugby Team Phillip Alvis told Smith the new kit will come in handy, because the previous uniforms were ruined.

He said the team is looking forward to playing in them with a lot of pride and honour, as it strives to win the competition.

The St.Vincent and the Grenadines Rugby Union has been in existence since January 18, 1998.

The organization recently held its general elections and DeFreitas was re-elected President, unopposed.This is her fourth time as President.

Some other members elected to the executive are Phillip Alvis, First Vice President; Kelly Glass, Second Vice President; and Leonard Matthews, Treasurer.
