ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Caribbean Insurers Limited has announced that with proceeds raised from its annual Soap Box Derby, two local non-profit organisations and one educational institution are in a better place to achieve their objectives.

The two non-profit organisations are the BVI Cancer Society and Miss BVI Kadia Turnbull’s Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance while the other entity to benefit is the Eslyn Henley Richiez Learning Centre.

CIL ‘sociably responsible’

At a simple presentation ceremony on July 24, 2017 President of the BVI Cancer Society Ms Gloria A. Fahie expressed gratitude to Caribbean Insurers Ltd.

“I have been watching this company for a very long time and I have noted that they are very sociably responsible, they give back to the community all the time and they give to the [BVI] Cancer Society every year.”

Therapeutic water fountain for EHRLC

Principal of Eslyn Henley Richiez Learning Centre (EHRLC), Ms Vansittart Huggins received a cheque valued One Thousand, Six Hundred dollars ($1,600), which the insurance company secured from one of their partners, Morgan White Group.

According to Brian W. Jermyn, Managing Director of CIL, Morgan White Group made the donation to CIL specifically for the territory’s lone school for persons with disabilities.

That money will be used for the construction of a water foundation in the school’s compound at John’s Hole and will be used by the students as a means of therapy.

“Morgan White Group has been one of our partners in the Soap Box Derby and they do like to do some things to help out in the BVI Community and this year they have partnered with the Eslyn Henley Richiez Learning Centre so that they can get the water fountain,” said Mr Jermyn.

Additional help for the project at the leaning centre is being undertaken by Ground Works BVI and the water fountain is expected to be ready for the start of the new academic year.

The 2nd CIL Soap Box Derby was held on the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) Paraquita Bay Campus on Sunday July 9, 2017 and attracted more than 20 entrants.
