Karib Cable sponsors another successful and commemorative event in St. Lucia. Karib Cable together with NTN brought the “Festival of Carols” right into the homes of the St. Lucian public by providing the broadband Internet link to facilitate a live broadcast of the night’s festivities.
The 2012 Festival of Carols, under the distinguished patronage of the Governor General of Saint Lucia, H. E. Dame Pearlette Louisy, took place at the Church of Our Lady of Assumption in Vieux-Fort on Sunday 9th December from 6:30 pm. Also in attendance was the Prime Minister Hon Dr. Kenny D. Anthony.
There were thirteen performance groups including the Royal Saint Lucia Police Band and the Assumption Knights Youth in Action Steel Orchestra.
The Festival of Carols has been organized by the Cultural Development Foundation for over ten years and in eleven of the seventeen districts of Saint Lucia.
PR Officer for the event, Mr. Jimmy Clavier stated that “Karib Cable was chosen for sponsorship because we deemed it necessary to provide a live broadcast which would allow for a wider engagement of the Saint Lucian populace.”
This ceremony was preceded by an Annual Lantern Competition where students from various schools design their lanterns and a Festival of Carols was celebrated through a church service.
The General Manager of Karib Cable Ms. Joya Martin was more than pleased to provide this service for this festive event, in keeping with its corporate social responsibility program “Making a Difference”.
Karib Cable will continue to support initiatives that enrich the lives of St. Lucians through involvement in the environment, health and wellness, culture, community projects and sports.
