4 August 2017

Road Town, British Virgin Islands, 4 August 2017 – During the first seven months of 2017 Harneys has sought to positively impact the BVI community through its ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, contributing over $20,000 to 17 community groups including:

In addition to these and other sponsorships and donations throughout the community, Harneys has continued to strengthen its longstanding partnership with its adopted school, Francis Lettsome Primary School (FLPS). During the first half of 2017 Harneys supported initiatives at FLPS including a Saturday reading programme, the second annual Science Fair; and the Science Saturdays enrichment programme. Science Saturdays, a partnership started in 2016 among Harneys, FLPS, and Cedar International School, provides FLPS students with the opportunity to explore the world of science, technology and mathematics.

Chief Operating Officer Felice Swapp, who is a member of the CSR Committee, said: “At Harneys we recognise our responsibility as a leader within the community. We are pleased to support initiatives that foster education, youth empowerment, appreciation for the arts, and the overall development of the BVI.” 

Harneys will continue to support the local community through its sponsorship of education and youth programmes. Upcoming sponsorships include the BVI Heritage Dancers, H. Lavity Stoutt Community College’s 23rd Annual Performing Arts Series, and the Elmore Stoutt High School’s Debate Competition.
