Sagicor donates to Cancer Society
Sagicor joined the world in observing Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October by donating to the Cancer Society (TTCS).
In a release on Tuesday, the Sagicor group said it held a T-shirt fundraiser – checkyoursout – which took place in its Southern Caribbean markets in support of each country’s cancer society.
On November 25, on behalf of Sagicor, its finance manager Gina Paul-Schwartz donated $21,000 to the Cancer Society.
It said the funds had been raised by clients and staff buying T-shirts, and those funds were then matched by the organisation.
The cheque handover has been the peak of a month-long series of activities which had included a social media campaign and a "Let’s talk about cancer" webinar that featured oncologist Dr Kavi Capildeo, paediatrician and cancer survivor Dr Mariama Alleyne, Dr Le Blanc and psychiatric nurse Sherma Mills-Serrette.
