GRENADA CO-OPERATIVE BANK LTD INITIATIVE FOR THE RESUSCITATION OF CARLTON HOME, SUPPORTED BY GUARDIAN GENERAL INSURANCE (OECS) LTD
St. George -- Grenada Co-operative Bank has announced its plans to make a difference to the landscape of Grenadian society by commencing a new initiative at the Carlton Home -- a facility for the care, counselling and rehabilitation of alcohol and substance abusers.
Following a call by the bank for an initial five year project, positive responses were received from Jonas Browne & Hubbard (Grenada) Limited, Guardian General Insurance (OECS) Ltd and FLOW Grenada, each of whom made a sizeable donation to the programme. A representative from the bank and each of the contributing Companies will form the basis of a Board of Trustees for the funds donated to Carlton Home.
Mr. Ronald Hughes, Managing Director of Guardian General Insurance (OECS) Ltd, believes that there are already a large number of persons who, with the needed treatment and support, have a good chance at returning to a productive, meaningful and healthy lifestyle.
Co-Op Bank has advised that all "Pump It Up" registered participants, will have the opportunity to voluntarily donate a few dollars extra which will be earmarked for the Carlton House programme.
