Wray & Nephew Ltd donated $100,000 from the International Women’s Day ‘Redefine Sisterhood’ promotion which ended in March.

J. Wray & Nephew Limited through its brand, Sangster's Jamaica Rum Cream, donated J$100,000 to Woman Inc. The donation came from proceeds of the Sangster's Jamaica Rum Cream 'Redefine Sisterhood' campaign with the intention of offering support and raising awareness of Woman Inc and the work that they do.

The campaign encouraged the breakdown of gender barriers and to inspire further progress for women. It also asked participants to upload a photo to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram of women who inspired them, using the hashtag #SupportOurSisters. J. Wray & Nephew Ltd donated JMD$100 for every qualifying photo. Additionally, the same contribution was made for every purchase of 750ml or 1L bottle of Sangster's Jamaica Rum Cream at Hi-Lo and PriceSmart stores.
