Freetown Choral Society Gives Aid To Cheshire Home

As part of its 70 year anniversary, the Freetown Choral Society (FCS), an organized group that promotes choral music in Christendom and also engages in charitable works, yesterday donated food items and toiletries to the Freetown Cheshire Home (FCH) located in Cline Town.

Reynold Edwin-Jones, assistant secretary of FCS said the donation is part of their charity toward vulnerable and deprived communities. “This donation is part of our goodwill gesture,” he said. Furthermore, he said the donation was made possible with support from Gento Group of Companies, Mercury International, Nesto Farm, Bolloré, Bet Salone, and Dr. Olabisi Cole. 

Making the presentation on behalf of the group, Madam Alice said the move was intended to ease the burden on duty-bearers of the Home to cater for the children during this festive season. 

Receiving the donation on behalf of the Freetown Cheshire Home, Ibrahim Bangura, the operations officer expressed his profound gratitude to the FCS. He remarked that running the Home is not an easy task and therefore appealed to the government to make timely disbursement of funds allocated to run the facility. He said they cannot admit more children into the Home because of resource constraints.

The presentation was climaxed with songs by the Freetown Choral Society 

Note: The Freetown Cheshire Home was established in 1962 to provide primary education for children with disabilities and to cater for their physical, social, medical and vocational development
