The Bank of Nova Scotia has renewed its sponsorship of the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTYSC). Scotiabank and the RHTYSC established the highly successful relationship in 2009, and the sponsorship package for 2015 is worth $300,000.

Club Secretary/Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Hilbert Foster stated that the RHTYSC, apart from being one of the top cricket clubs in Guyana, strongly believed in making a positive difference in the lives of youths, the elderly and less fortunate. Each year, the RHTYSC, apart from its involvement in sports, undertakes over 200 programmes/activities under banners such as pro-education, anti-drugs, social, youth development, community development, charity, and awards/honour.

The long-standing Club Secretary/CEO hailed the Bank of Nova Scotia as a true friend of the RHTYSC and described it as a responsible corporate entity which has invested heavily into youth development. The Bank’s support for 2015 would assist the RHTYSC to make its Silver Jubilee anniversary celebration a success as it covers co-sponsorship for the annual review magazine, the annual Tribute to Teachers programme, a county-wide essay competition and the Club’s cricket development programme.

The RHTYSC Silver Jubilee celebration, which would be observed throughout the year, will be unmatched in the history of Guyana with special emphasis been placed on sports, pro-education, welfare of the elderly and less fortunate, anti-drugs/suicide, awards/honours, community development and assisting 25 cricket clubs in Berbice. Foster expressed profound gratitude to the Bank for its support.

Scotiabank Marketing Manager Jennifer Cipriani stated that the bank was pleased to support the work of the RHTYSC as it was fulfilling its mandate to make a positive difference in the lives of youths. She congratulated the Club on achieving 25 years of progress and noted that the Bank was pleased with its association with the RHTYSC. As a responsible corporate entity, Cipriani noted, the Bank invests heavily in sports, education, youth development, and culture.
