As part of their recent Christmas launch, Digicel held a Celebrity Cash Grab with the proceeds being donated to the Adele School. The Digicel Brand Ambassadors – Tizzy, Chickie, Brucella Marsh, Tha Shya and Mongoose participated in the grab raising $2,300 with Digicel matching their efforts giving a total donation of $5,000.
Barbara Charles, Principal said “The Adele School is most grateful for the kind donation of $5,000 dollars from Digicel. We the staff at the Adele School are always looking to upgrade & improve the learning experience for our students many of whom face multiple challenges in their quest to gain both academic and life skills. We are currently in the process of attempting to add more space and a literacy centre as we’re full to capacity. We are also looking to acquire more appropriate learning tools for use in our reception class. The children learn best when they can experience lessons through the media of multisensory instruction, so field trips are an essential component to their program. These trips help integration & create hands on experience, but they are not all free. Having this kind and generous donation will help in so many ways to enhance both the environment and overall learning experience for all students.”
Janice Sutherland, Commercial Manager, Digicel said “We’re honoured that we’ve been able to raise these funds for a really deserving cause and this is just part of the support we’ll be providing to the Adele School this Christmas.”
The first showing of the Digicel Cash Grab can be seen in the Digicel Cash or More Cash Quiz show on ABS TV this Friday, December 2nd, at 8pm, where one lucky finalist will have the chance to grab up to $50,000.
