Two of Saint Lucia’s iconic institutions have received support from LIME this week, in collaboration with George Theophilus, the cover subject of the telecommunications company’s 2013 Services Directory.
The two institutions, both of which cater to the needs of the elderly, are the Marian Home and the Adelaide & Frances Memorial Home. Chris Williams, general manager of LIME Saint Lucia, visited the two east Castries homes along with Theophilus on Wednesday of this week to make cheque presentations to the respective administrators.
LIME has been a consistent supporter of the elderly, having made similar presentations last year to St. Joseph’s Villa and the St Lucy’s Home, as well as doing work at Comfort Bay in Laborie and providing previous financial assistance to the Marian Home.
On this occasion, the presentations were made on Theophilus’ behalf to two of his favourite charities. Theophilus is a pioneer in the field of finance in Saint Lucia. Among his many achievements in that sphere is his creation of Financial Investment & Consultancy Services Ltd (FICS).
“We at LIME are delighted that we are able to contribute to these two fine institutions, both of which do such valuable work in our community,” said Williams. “It is timely that we take a step back and recognise and pay tribute to those who have truly stood by us through the years. As a nation we must care for our elderly, those who have paved the way for us, and to whom we owe such a great debt. The donation that we are making shows the esteem in which we hold our forebears and we are proud to stand with Mr Theophilus to support these organisations.”
Marian Home was represented by Sister Olivia Oculien, whilst founder and director Augustus Justin received the cheque on behalf of the Adelaide & Frances Memorial Home.
