World and double Olympic 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will host her ninth annual children's Christmas treat in her hometown of Waterhouse tomorrow, starting at 12 noon. The treat will actually be held at 23 Ashoka Road, where she grew up.

One additional feature this year will be a special outreach to also treat some 70 kids from the Majestic Gardens community.

"Christmas is a time for giving to the less fortunate, and my hard work has helped me to achieve, so I will always want to share anything I have or gained with them. I did experience this situation they now face, and I want to make them feel that someone cares, as it fills my heart with joy when I see the smiles and reactions of these kids," said Fraser-Pryce.

"There are so many less fortunate people in our society who needs a helping hand, and I will always reach out to them through my foundation," added Fraser-Pryce.

She will receive support from Digicel and GraceKennedy, for whom she is their brand Ambassador, and international sportswear manufacturer Nike.
