Twenty-five children from the Maxfield Park Children's Home in Kingston were recently treated to an all-expense-paid excursion to Dolphin Cove in St Ann by Sterling Asset Management. It was a day of fun and frolic for them.

Richard Lawrence, childcare coordinator and social worker at the home, described it as an experience that would reside in the children's minds for a lifetime.

The children participated in an educational nature tour, petting of some exotic birds and animals, and watched dolphin and shark shows, among other activities.

Kevin Richards, vice-president of marketing and sales at Sterling Asset Management, said the company has been a supporter of the home in various ways over the years, including giving academic support to present and former wards.

He said this ongoing financial support covers the cost of school fees and after-school lessons.

"We believe in giving back and providing academic support to children," Richards said.
