These youngsters were among the first to receive free exercise books at the annual back-to-school fair put on by Tango’s Entertainment and main sponsor, Digicel, in Montego Bay recently.

Last week, scores of children from Montego Bay, St James, turned out for a day of fun, frolic, and gifts as Tango's Entertainment, in association with Digicel Foundation, staged its annual back-to-school fair, where the youngsters received much-needed school supplies.

The children, whose ages ranged from three to 16, received Digicel-branded schoolbags and exercise books as well as geometry sets, pens, pencils, crayons, paint sets, and rulers.

The youngsters also benefited from free health checks and enjoyed kid-friendly meals from Reggae Jammin' and were entertained by Tifa, Ding Dong, Lemon, and a magician.

Ryan Prendergast, the director of Tango's Entertainment, expressed much gratitude to Digicel and the other sponsors that included medical personnel, Honey Bun, Bigga, National Bakery, Elite Concept Solutions, and Sweetie.

"This fair would not have been possible without the help of our sponsors," said Prendergast. "We are happy that these corporate companies understand the importance of corporate social responsibility. When you see the smiles on the faces of these children, it makes the event well worth it every year."




Danielia McLean, Digicel sponsorship manager, said her company was extremely delighted to contribute towards meeting the needs of students and their parents at this time of the year.

"More parents are showing a greater level of involvement in their children's education. We want to encourage them by helping out with the cost of sending their children back to school. At the same time, we want the children to feel that Jamaica is still a caring society. That's why we've also twinned this effort with a fun day of activities and entertainment for them to enjoy and have great memories of summer," McLean said.
