This marks the fifth occurrence of such an undertaking which commenced in 2013. The barrel of items donated includes children’s clothing, toys, books, and adult wear.
As commented by one of Benchmark’s directors, Sheldon ‘Eggie’ Sealy, “The intent is always for the diaspora to give back as much as they can to the needy and indigent in the community. We are proud of BMFG’s collaboration over the past few years and quite confident that their distribution will meet the needs of those most in need.”
Ms. Synthia Thomas – Secretary of the BMFG – expressed sincere thanks to Benchmark Entertainment who have been ever supportive of the group’s work towards assisting the less fortunate in the Babonneau community. Moreover, she wished them every success in their future endeavours and hope that they continue the good work.
Benchmark Entertainment has notoriously hosted an annual Diaspora Boatride during the Carnival season dubbed “Carnival Diaspora” but decided this year to expand with an inaugural festive season boatride. Branded as ‘No Stoosh 758 Edition’, the boatride will take place on Sunday, 20th December 2015.
