Angostura hands out Legacy $$
The National Centre for Persons with Disabilities received a $260,000 contribution from the money raised by Angostura’s Legacy dinner, dance and auction held on August 4 at the Hyatt Regency. Executive managers Alana Beaubrun and Genevieve Jodhan visited the facility in San Fernando to present the cheque to the CEO Dr Beverly Beckles. A release from Angostura stated that, Beckles, who graciously accepted, said: “This is indeed a wonderful gesture being made by Angostura to our organisation. We work hard to maintain our facility to better able to assist those in our care. We will put this to good use.”
The money will go toward installing a gym at the New Street location. This will help those who use the facilities to maintain a healthy way of life, and will help the centre to fulfill their mission of “providing effective and efficient training and rehabilitative services for persons with disabilities that enhance the quality of their lives and promote their integration into the wider community.”
Angostura CEO, Robert Wong stated: “Angostura is happy to have been able to facilitate the accumulation of this sum of money through our efforts in celebration of the 50th anniversary of our country. “What is more fitting than to contribute to an organisation which looks after the often forgotten members of our nation’s society.”
