St.Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Shariena Mills, Business Manager of the West Indies News Network, WINN FM, says the company has decided to give back to the community as part of its 20th-anniversary celebration.
According to the WINN FM Business Manager, the company will host a Charity Walk, from which proceeds will be donated to three charity groups.
“We’re having a “Winning with WINN” Charity Walk, our first and hopefully annual charity walk, and we’ve decided to support three Charities (Non- profit organisations); which are the Cardin Home, [because] you have to look for those who do not have anybody to look for them; no matter what age they are; the Children’s Home and PALS (Paediatric Assistance League of St. Kitts and Nevis.”
Speaking on “Island Tea” with Jade and Azem on Tuesday morning, September 27, Mills said WINN FM has made it through a global recession and a pandemic with the help of the community and as such, giving back to the community is the least that can be done.
“What I realise is, it’s been a rough road for the past two years for everybody, including the media companies and the media groups, and we have to be grateful and thankful that we’re still in business because of our supporters and our listeners. So what I decided for 20 years is that “we need to give back.” Twenty years, you couldn’t make it as a business without people supporting you nonstop. So we have to give back. We have to give back to the community because, without the community, we wouldn’t have anybody supporting us.”
The walk will be held on Saturday, October 01, 2022. The Board of Directors, Management and Staff, are inviting all supporters and listeners of WINN FM to attend.
Mills said, “ It is going to start at the parking lot next to Caribbean Cinemas, and we’re going to be there at 5 a.m. There is a registration fee, and all the funds will go towards the Charities. So, we’re asking people to sign up for just $30.00. The first 50 [persons] that register will receive a free WINN t-shirt to celebrate 20 years as a big milestone. So, we’ll get fit, and we help a cause at the same time.”
The Winning with WINN Charity Walk will start from the parking lot by Caribbean Cinemas, unto the Bypass Road heading east, then to the Kim Collins Highway, onward to ECCB, and return via the Industrial Site unto the Bay Road and will end at WINN FM’s office at Sand’s Complex, Basseterre. All participants will receive healthy refreshments. Prizes will also be awarded to the first person to complete the walk, as well as the youngest and eldest participants.
