FOR the past seven years, at Christmas and Independence, the Rotary Club of St Augustine West has been decorating the medical paediatric ward two at the Wendy Fitzwilliam Paediatric Hospital, Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex (ESMSC) at Mt Hope.
This Christmas, due to the covid19 restrictions the club was unable to decorate the ward. Instead, members decided to light up two trees at the hospital. On December 5 the lights were officially turned on by club president Curtis A Gopie and Beth Castillo, assistant to the property manager at EWMSC.
“In doing so we not only brought cheer to the one ward, but the whole of the paediatric hospital,” Gopie said.
The children and staff were entertained by Edwin “Uncle Crazy” Ayoung and Kizzie Huggins.
