J. Wray & Nephew Limited (JWN) is for the fifth year recommitting its support of the St Andrew South Police Youth Club's Summer Camp Programme. Through JWN's Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, over $2 million has been donated to the initiative in the last five years. The camp targets vulnerable and at-risk communities and aims to achieve positive behaviour modification through counselling sessions, team-building activities and skills training.

This year's camp will directly impact 100 students from communities such as Majesty and Olympic gardens, and will focus on children that are exposed to abuse and violence.
