Team Mikey Charity continues to give back. In the midst of another successful Crop-Over
Festival recently, popular entertainer Mikey continued his giving to charitable causes.
Within the last two weeks donations were made to the Campwood Children’s Home in Farm Road, St. Philip and the New Dawn Senior Citizens Home in St. John.
At Campwood, which caters to children newborn to four years old, staff welcomed Mikey with open arms and said the food items donated would be extremely handy.
They also said it would be a treat for the children to colour and draw with the supplies donated by Scotia Bank. The staff at New Dawn Seniors Home was equally thrilled that Mikey and the charity made a donation to them, voicing their pleasure that the entertainer and his team did not forget the people who helped build Barbados, also noting that every donation was welcome.
With these two donations concluding this stage of the charity’s 2013 summer programme, Mikey emphasised that the donations would not be possible without the Barbadian public who gave generously even in these hard economic times, and expressed his immense gratitude for everyone who assisted.
He also thanked Jordan’s Supermarket, which allowed the charity to set up its barrel at their various locations so persons could contribute.
Mikey said when he returned from overseas tours the charity would distribute the funds collected from the sale of its HOPE branded T-shirts to the deserving organisations chosen at the beginning of the year. (SC)
