Young members of the Sharks Swim Club were distributing hampers to to the less fortunate in the community of Faux A Chaud Saturday.
Spokesperson for the group of youngsters, Anya Hilaire, told St Lucia Times that the young sharks undertake the exercise every year.
“We collect items to put together hampers for the less fortunate and we give them out to different people in different parts of Saint Lucia,” Hilaire disclosed.
This year, a total of 87 hampers are being distributed by the group.
Hilaire observed that there are a lot of clubs and church groups that young people can get involved in to keep themselves occupied and less likely to engage in negative behaviour.
She told St Lucia Times that the young sharks visited various Massy supermarkets asking people to donate cash or items towards the hampers.
Members of the the Sharks Swim Club have represented Saint Lucia nationally, regionally and internationally in swimming competitions and events.
The club comprises an estimated one hundred persons.
