Book Chair Donation

Miss Nadine’s Preschool got a surprise last week when the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Sunrise delivered two book chairs filled with books for the little readers.

With funds from their popular Buy A Kid A Book program that Rotary Sunrise held this year in February, the club was able to donate the chairs filled with hundreds of books along with a $1,000 gift certificate to The Book Nook for future book purchases.

Complete Services KY donated the materials and labour for the two chairs, and Rotary Sunrise purchased the books and special padding to create a comfy corner for little readers to snuggle into.

Literacy Director Hendrik van Genderen had this to say,

“Handing over the chair at Miss Nadine’s Preschool was such a rewarding experience. The Club hopes this donation will enhance the children’s love to read and judging by the happy reception from staff and children, the chair will be a bonus for all. This project was made possible because of the excellent teamwork of the Literacy Committee and the generous donations from the public.”

The donation reflects Rotary Sunrise’s continued commitment to supporting literacy in our islands. President Stacy Parke commented that, “One of the main focus of Rotary Sunrise is literacy and ensuring that at children of all ages are given the access and opportunity read. Creating this unique and fun library chair for the children was a labour of love. The members of the Club all supported the initiative, and we are thankful for the usual support of the community with the Buy A Kid A Book fundraiser.”
