The staff of bmobile’s West Mall Retail Store took time on Independence Day to host a community outreach event at the Fifth Company Baptist Primary School in Moruga.
Spearheading the initiative was retail branch manager Joanne Duntin-Noel.
Principal Andre Carlisle Bramble was delighted that his school had been selected again to facilitate the outreach and also receive book bags and stationery items courtesy Duntin-Noel and bmobile. Bramble said at the handover: “We at Fifth Company Baptist Primary are quite happy for this contribution made to us courtesy bmobile.
This area is considered to be socio-economically depressed and it is good that they have presented us with some stationery and school bags for the children.
We’re always glad when stakeholders come out and assist us. We are very appreciative that they selected our school. I enjoyed the entire presentation they did for us and we’re very grateful.”
Bmobile also invited residents of the rural community to the event, and gifted them with discounted prices on mobile phones and other special offers. Residents opted to capitalise on these offerings, inclusive of new unlimited plans with unlimited data, local and international text messages and unlimited calls to any local network, said a media release.
Rainer Dobring though, was so committed to acquiring a wireless LTE device that he trekked all the way from Chaguaramas to Moruga to secure this product.
Duntin-Noel was pleased with the outcome of the event: “We also invited the churches and other groups from within the community to come out and sell items (local dishes and drinks) so that their respective organisations could benefit from the activity. And for the kids, we featured bouncy castles, face painting and a variety of interactive games.”
