ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The Digicel Back to School Tour came to an end with a visit to the Claudia Creque Educational Centre on Anegada today (Monday September 22, 2014). This was the last of four separate school visits during the month of September.

The Joyce Samuel Primary School, the Elmore Stoutt High School and the Lady Limers of Cane Garden Bay also benefited as part of this terms Back to School tour with Digicel.

These schools were chosen in response to letters received looking for assistance with various activities that would benefit pupils directly. Copy books, pencils, penmanship books, sports balls, drawstring bags and the Marine Awareness Guide were among the items donated by Digicel.

"It is important to us at Digicel that we offer items that the pupils really need" said Jasmine A. Perez, Marketing and Public Relations Executive at Digicel.

Digicel did not act alone on the Back to School Tour. Copy books, pencils and penmanship books were purchased in conjunction with the National Educational Services Company, the Marine Awareness Guide was donated by Alooking Glass, and the balls were donated by the BVI Rugby Team.

The Lady Limers also supported the initiative and had this to say "Lady Limers, a group of women, from Cane Garden Bay were very pleased with the overwhelming response for this Back to School initiative. A large part of the success can be credited to Digicel who did not hesitate in contributing books, supplies and bags to students and teachers".

Conor Looney, Digicel CEO added "Giving back to our community is part of the unique Digicel culture and we are delighted to assist schools across the territory in providing the best possible start this academic year to hundreds of students."

    Finally a phone company actually giving assistance to the school on Anegada. WOW!! it must have rained cats and dogs. Thanks for travelling all the way to Anegada and supporting the Claudia Creque Educational Center. Anegada has always been left out whenever it comes to rendering assistance to the youth of Anegada. I pray and hope that was not a one time gusture and that other business will follow suit. Thanks DIGICEL, the Biger Better Network.
