WEST END, Tortola, VI - Persons in the First District community are continuing to play their part on the road to recovery following Hurricane Irma that ravaged the territory two months.

On Friday, November 10, 2017 businesses in the First District donated water to the Leonora Delville Primary School, with a commitment to donate other items towards rebuilding the school located in Capoon's Bay.

Honourable Andrew A. Fahie, First Distric Representative and Leader of the Opposition, said "The Principal and staff of the school recieved over thirty cases of drinking water and the assurance of donations in the future towards the rebuilding of the school building."

The building that housed the students of the Leonora Delville Primary School was severely damaged by hurricane Irma on September 6, 2017 along with other schools across the territory.

Donations & Pledges

Donations and pledges came from Tatoo's Trucking, Jerry's Car Rental, Kelly's Tire Shop, Tempo Racing Team and the Hon Fahie.

Principal Mrs Pearlette Frazer-Smith, along with her staff and students, welcomed the donations to the school as well as the pledges made for the rebuilding process.

"The school is currently housed under tents on the Capoon's Bay field due to the extensive damages to the school building. The businesses joined with the First District community efforts to play an integral part in the rebuilding process of both the Isabella Morris Primary School in Carrot Bay and the Leonora Delville Primary School in Capoon's Bay," explained the Opposition Leader.

He revealed that the first district community has already contacted all the requisite education officials on their intent to work hand in glove in the restoration of the two public primary schools in the First District.

Commending the businesses that donated, Hon Fahie said, 'kudos to our first district businesses for their thoughtfulness and great community spirit. Kudos also to Mr Hodge of Tatoo's Trucking for giving away a few well designed T-shirts that advertises his business Tatoo's Trucking. It only takes a spark to get the fire going. Together we will always achieve more."
