CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank has provided a much-needed boost for the St Patrick's Foundation, under its 'Adopt a Cause' and Corporate Social Responsibility programmes.

Managing Director Nigel Holness recently presented a photocopying machine at the Foundation's Seaview Gardens headquarters, home to a range of development programmes, including cosmetology, hairdressing and cake baking, catering to residents of the inner-city communities of Seaview Gardens, Riverton City, Olympic Gardens, and Waterhouse.

Declaring, "What you sow is what you will reap," Holness urged students "to study hard and take full advantage of the opportunities being afforded by the Foundation".

Hermine Metcalfe, chairman of the Foundation's board, said, "The new photocopier is a welcome boost in the administrative office and will be a great help in the preparation of documents to support class activities."
