VALLEY, Virgin Gorda, VI: The Miss World Organisation through Julia E. Morley made good on their promise to one of the school’s primary sponsors and community activist Mr Allington O. Creque aka “Gumption” with a with $5k supply donation to the Valley Day School.

Back in February 2018, the international pageant organization took the decision to make a first time trip to the Virgin Islands after learning from the then Miss World BVI Ms Helena A. Hewlett, of the devastation the territory suffered from the hurricanes of 2017 and its determination to recover.

Determination & passion

There was also determination displayed when the local Miss World BVI Organisation did all that it could to ensure that the local queen Ms Hewlett attended the international pageant even as the territory faced devastation.

During the visit to the territory, Ms Morley and her delegation included reigning Miss World Manushi Chhillar, 2016 Miss World Stephanie M. Del Valle of Puerto Rico and five continental queens accompanied by local queens Ms Hewlett and the 2016 Miss World BVI Kadia Turnbull.

They visited several schools, organisations and places included the Valley Day School at Virgin Gorda where they saw the first-hand impact Mr Creque was making in the lives of the children and teachers. This resulted in a commitment of $5k worth of needed supplies for the school.

The supplies arrived in the territory with the assistance of Ministry of Education and Her Majesty’s Customs who facilitated duty-free exemptions for the items and Virgin Gorda Transport/Speedy's Ferry sponsored the shipping of the items from Tortola to Virgin Gorda. It was taken by the Territory’s first Mr World BVI, Temulji O. Hughes and Miss World BVI 2018 Yadali Thomas Santos and other members of the local organisation.

Supplies already in use

During the brief presentation event on Monday, many of the students recalled the February visit of the International Miss World Contingent and were elated to receive the donated items. In fact, the painting supplies immediately went into use as some of the students commenced a painting project with Miss World BVI.

Mr Creque who was on hand said that he was pleased that Mrs Morley visited and contributed to the school. He also spoke of the importance of education and community engagement.

Both Mr and Miss World BVI noted that the donation is a demonstration of the Miss World Organization’s mission to inspire leadership qualities in young people, as well as promote commitment to the community, encourage academic excellence and reinforce high ethical standards.

    Thanks to the Ms. World Organizations both local and international for a job well done. As parent with children who attended this school, I can say this donation will be greatly appreciated. Once again a big thank you to this organization and all those who assisted in making this possible. Thank you all.
