Sagicor donates to St Lucia Tennis Association
Even in a pandemic the show must go on, so recently when Sagicor Life (Eastern Caribbean) Inc received a request from the St Lucia Tennis Association to consider providing support to ensure that a team of young tennis players were able to compete in the upcoming COTECC Regional Under 12 Tournament in the Dominican Republic, the regional insurance giant immediately agreed.
As a result, the Tennis Association was able to secure a donation of $10,000 from Sagicor, which will ensure that the team of three boys and three girls are equipped and present, to represent St Lucia at the tournament at the end of the month.
Sherlon Leon, Sales Manager for Sagicor Life (Eastern Caribbean) Inc in St Lucia was present to provide the cheque to Digby Ambris of the St Lucia Tennis Association. He said, “Sagicor has had a relationship with the St Lucia Tennis Association for many years now. However, it’s important that we continue to nurture the dreams of our young people during this difficult time. With that in mind providing support for the St Lucia team to attend this tournament is very important to us. We wish the youngsters all the best, and encourage them not to lose hope, continue to train and do their best, so that they’re fully prepared to continue achieving their dreams on the other side of this.”
Digby Ambris, Vice President and Manager of the Tennis Association said, “Sagicor continues to be a great partner and supporter of tennis in this country, and we are appreciative in particular of their concern with the youngsters. This pandemic has been challenging for our athletes from a training perspective, but they are extremely motivated so I anticipate that they should perform as well as they have at past tournaments and even exceed those expectations.”
The Regional Under-12 Team Tennis Tournament takes place in Santo Domingo from Friday 24th to Friday 1st October 2021.
