Mayor Reports Good Response To Rose Hill Fire Appeal

Castries Mayor, Peterson Francis, is reporting a good response to an appeal by his office for donations to victims of the Rose Hill fire on New Year’s day.

Francis says he is very pleased with the donations and contributions made to his office by members of the public and some corporate entities for the victims.

Seven houses were destroyed in the early morning blaze.

Mayor Francis disclosed that the most significant donation came from the Salvation Army.

That organisation contributed a number of items, including school stationery, grocery items, mattresses and clothing, Francis stated.

Members of the public also contributed various items.

Francis lauded the efforts of all who made donations.

“We wish to thank the Salvation Army for such a substantial contribution. We also wish to thank members of the public for responding to our cry to assist the victims. I am very contented with the many donations,” he said.

“This shows that in times of need and tragedy, our people can come together. Everything contributed will go directly to fire victims through Volunteer Saint Lucia,” Francis added.
