ROUND HILL, Hanover — Following an extremely successful year of fund-raising, Hanover Charities will today disburse approximately $70 million to several organisations across Hanover, as well as more than 150 deserving students in the parish, during its annual awards and grant ceremony at the Round Hill Villas in the parish.

This year the charitable organisation, which has been in existence for 61 years, raised a record-breaking US$600,000, primarily from its main fund-raising event, the Sugar Cane Ball.

Thalia Lyn, CEO of Island Grill and NCB Foundation chair, will be guest speaker at the ceremony, while Members of Parliament for Hanover Eastern and Hanover Western, Dave Brown and Ian Hayles, respectively, are expected to bring greetings.

Some of this year's beneficiaries include the Hanover Parish Library, Hanover Infirmary, Green Island Primary, Esher Primary, and the Cecile Clare Kitchen of Love.

Additionally, scholarships will be awarded to students in a variety of disciplines, ranging from teaching, medicine, agriculture, tourism, hospitality, and engineering.
