The provision of equipment, refreshments, uniforms, and continued development of the community’s youth are the areas that have been identified to benefit from Callaloo Cay’s most recent donation to sports clubs in Old Road.  On Thursday morning, managers and players of the Old Road football club and the Callaloo Cay Young Lions, gathered at the Old Road football field to receive the donations from Callaloo Cay Senior Vice President of Business Development Dawood Shah.  Chesley Browne, manager of the Old Road FC accepted the USD$3500 donation on behalf of the team.   He says the team has been able to maintain a stellar record due in part to the contribution of corporate sponsors like Callaloo Cay. He says the funds received will go a long way towards ensuring that the members are able to focus on improvement. “We are about youth development and to be very honest, we are happy to have Callaloo Cay on board.  It’s a great feeling for us, it’s something we really appreciate and hope will continue.” Browne added that he looks forward to seeing the continued development of the community with the contributions of Callaloo Cay.  For the last four years, the Old Road FC has maintained a position within the top four teams on island and have won back to back championships.     Ruby Williams, Secretary of the Callaloo Cay Young Lions received a USD$1500 donation on behalf of the team and also expressed her gratitude.  She says the funds will be an integral part of ensuring that the team is able to keep abreast of all team related and management expenses.   Speaking of his company’s rationale for these sponsorships, Shah says “these donations are in line with our commitment to the Old Road community and especially to youth development.  It is one of the principles carried through all of our initiatives and it is one we intend to maintain as we move towards breaking ground on the first phase of our development. “In November 2015, Callaloo Cay contributed a combined USD$10, 000.00 to both teams.  In May 2016, they also handed over a refurbished sporting complex consisting tennis, basketball and netball courts in Old Road.
