Digicel yesterday donated a new gas stove complete with a gas cylinder and fittings to a single mother of nine as part of its 7th anniversary celebrations.
According to a Digicel Guyana press release issued on Thursday, Bridget Dundas was chosen as the recipient after her plight, including the difficulties she faced as a single parent during previous years, was highlighted in the media last year.
As a result, the company decided to pay the family a visit on Christmas day, surprising them with a complete Christmas meal, groceries and clothing vouchers as part of its ‘Brighten Someone’s Christmas’ promotion. It was further stated that after seeing the need in Bridget’s home
for a proper cooking tool, Digicel decided for its anniversary celebrations to surprise the family with a brand new gas stove, complete with gas cylinder and fittings.
When Digicel representatives arrived at Bridget Dundas’ home, she was at work but her 18-year-old son Carl McKenzie and some of his siblings were totally shocked and surprised. When contacted by phone, Dundas was very thankful, according to Digicel.
The company also said that as part of its anniversary celebrations, customers would enjoy seven days of prizes and surprises starting today and ending next Thursday. Customers are encouraged to keep their phones on and to tune in to Digicel Morning Vibes on 100.1 Fresh FM from am to 9 am (Monday to Friday) to see if they are lucky winners of ‘FREEBIES.’ Seven lucky customers can win an identical Smartphone purchased for their Valentine in its anniversary phone sale. Also, three customers who receive top up from abroad will each receive a $50,000 voucher redeemable at Kings Jewellery World, according to the release.
