Police donate hampers to elderly West Berbice women

Twenty less fortunate elderly women in West Berbice felt special last week when officers from the Fort Wellington Police Station presented them with food hampers.

This exercise, which was part of an “outreach programme to give back to the community,” was done in collaboration with Commander of ‘B’ Division, Assistant Commissioner, Brian Joseph and the Fort Wellington Station Management Committee.

The officers, headed by Sergeant Cynthia Kelly, distributed the hampers at Hopetown, including to the oldest woman, 99-year-old, Jamie Mc Almont and at Bath Settlement and Bush Lot.

The women were grateful for the gesture and some even became emotional that the officers had reached out to them to ensure they enjoyed their Mother’s Day.
