The East Basseterre event was held on Sunday afternoon, 16th December 2012, at the Newtown Playing Field where hundreds of kids received Christmas gifts and enjoyed party favors, food and drinks and bouncing castles.
“It was a lot of work but well worth it as we were able to bring Christmas cheer to hundreds of kids in the community, said Event Main organizer Lawyer Natasha ”Shanny” Grey. “It was obvious that the children enjoyed themselves tremendously and the east Basseterre group was certainly even more delighted to bring smiles to those kids,” Grey continued
On Tuesday afternoon, 18th December 2102, the Central Basseterre Committee held their Christmas Children’s Party at PAM Headquarters. Once again hundreds came out and enjoyed bouncing castles and gifts. However the two big attractions at the event was the arrival of Santa Clause as well as the Face Painting which saw hundreds of children lining up to get their faces painted and to receive their gifts from Santa.
“I was overwhelmed by the amount of children and their response to the event. Particularly the face painting,” said PAM Deputy Chairman Jonel Powell. I was really delighted at the number of children that turned out and to see the joy in their faces. I think the PAM Central Basseterre Group certainly did a fantastic job in organIsing this event,” Powell continued
The Groups in the remaining constiteucnies are expected to stage similar event over the next few days leading up to Christmas.
