Lastly the youth centre received a cheque of $1,000 which was accepted by the director of the centre, Roxann Wake-Forbes.
The money will be used to enhance the arts and culture programmes at the youth centre in Downtown Providenciales.
Wake-Forbes said that they are looking to expand all of their programmes and over the next year they plan to reach out to the outer islands by going once a month and offering some of the programmes given to children in Providenciales.
“On behalf of the Edward Gartland Youth Centre I’d like to thank you Scotiabank,” Wake-Forbes said.
“One of the things we pride ourselves on is the support from the community and Scotiabank has been one of those businesses that has constantly been there to support us and we really do appreciate it.”
The centre caters to children between the ages of 12 and 18 and offers after school, weekend and holiday activities to keep the children occupied.
