Monday February 16th 2015, Anguilla; On Saturday, February 21st , 2015, Renuka Harrigan, founder of the Arijah Children’s Foundation will be hosting the second annual Love Tennis Tournament in support of the Centre sponsored by Digicel.
The tournament was an arousing success last year and promises to be even more effective this year. The purpose of the name, ‘LOVE Tennis’ is marked towards children with special needs, for the game of tennis, and Love for the Arijah Children’s Foundation.
On Monday the foundation received a donation of EC$5400.00. The funds donated was a result of Digicel support towards the Arijah children’s foundation event.
Ms. Harrigan, founder of the foundation, expressed her gratitude to Digicel saying, “It is really a pleasure to receive such a meaningful donation. It is a meaningful gesture and we are thankful from the bottom of our hearts.”
The privately run school now has 25 students and is dependent on corporate funding and support.
Supporting the Arijah second annual love tournament was the brain child of Digicel’s Head of Commercial, Kerchelle Jn C harles. She stated that “this year, Digicel is focusing on “breaking barriers and opening doors”. It is so very important for us to support all special needs foundations within our society. Activities such as these are important because they bring the students out of their homes and classrooms to socialize with each other, offer invaluable support to each other and of course to simply have a good time. Digicel has been a great supporter of the Arijah’s Children foundation and I am happy to once again be on board of this major event”
Marketing Executive Roxanne Webster commented, The Digicel team is always happy to show support to the youth and fostering of young children in Anguilla. We are proud to be involved with this initiative and it gives us great pleasure to know that the students will be able to get this uplifting experience as well as support towards the foundation.”
Through the kind and generous donations of many individuals, businesses and community groups, the Arijah’ s Children Foundation opened on September 6, 2010 and today provides daily educational and therapeutic programs and services for Anguilla’s children with special needs.
