Students at the Junior Plus Preparatory in St James raised US$8,000, the American Friends of Jamaica forked out US$14,000 and committed a continuation of funds, and Rainforest Seafoods has planned a Seafood and Family Fun Day for February 2013.

These are just a few of the donors and activities planned around raising continuous funding for the 'We Care for Cornwall Regional Hospital' initiative, launched at Sandals Montego Bay on Tuesday morning.

Come Ash Wednesday, February 13, 2013, Rainforest Seafood will stage a seafood family festival targeting no less than 10,000 patrons at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Centre, Montego Bay. The primary focus of the event is to donate 100 per cent of profits towards the 'We Care for Cornwall' group, says Jody Smith-Hussey of Rainforest Seafoods.

"We will be showcasing the best seafood dishes recipes that Jamaica has to offer," stated Smith-Hussey.

Some of the most exciting culinary talents on the island will be on show, with vendors from Little Ochie, Middle Quarters, Hellshire and Port Royal. "Local favourites such as Scotchies and Gloria's Port Royal will be participating in the family fun day, revealed Smith-Hussey in a sneak preview.

We Care for Cornwall is being led by Brian Jardim, Mark Hart, Eleanor Miller, Adam Stewart, Candis Craig, Paula Kerr-Jarrett and Dmitri Singh.

The group is driven by a mission to enrich and inspire the lives of community members while recognising the urgent need for improved services and better equipment at the Cornwall Regional Hospital.
