Since 1878 Victoria Mutual has partnered with “industrious, but financially excluded Jamaicans, to assist them with savings and home acquisition”. One hundred and forty years later, the company has remained relevant as it has kept customer and member satisfaction at its core. On Sunday, November 18 the member-focused and customer-obsessed Victoria Mutual team invited close to 200 members, customers and well-wishers to celebrate the company's milestone at the Courtleigh Auditorium. Guests noshed on catering from the Courtleigh Hotel and Suites and enjoyed the ambience created by the Victoria Mutual team that was assisted by K Mc & Associates Marketing Solutions Limited.


The 140th anniversary president's cocktail and cultural concert delighted guests with a University Singers recital and performances from De Cho-R'Us and Dance Xpressionz. De Cho-R'Us told the history of Victoria Mutual in song and incorporated the recitation of different service pledges by current Victoria Mutual team members into the performance.


The University Singers' 12-song multi-genre set comprised hits from its recently concluded 60th anniversary season and all-time cultural favourites. The performance was beautifully composed of classical, negro spiritual, blues, Jamaican folk and reggae songs. Dance Xpressionz performed a retrospective of Jamaican dances from yesteryear to present day that made many guests bob their heads as they travelled down memory lane. Everyone in the audience agreed with emcee Fae Ellington who said: “Dance is such an important part of our cultural expression.” The De Cho-R'Us, University Singers and Dance Xpressionz performances reflected the growth and history of the nation and that of Victoria Mutual.


The Victoria Mutual 140th anniversary event was a strong showing of Jamaican heritage and pride. It was a great event to celebrate the financial institution's milestone but also to remind of the rich history and indefatigable spirit Jamaica's forefathers. Tuesday Social has highlights.
