Culture Minister Dr. Frank Anthony, after receiving the cheque, thanked CHEC for coming on board and encouraged the company to play an even bigger role in Mash 2015.

Dr. Anthony said “… we are working hard to preserve our culture and to ensure that our children understand their cultural heritage so that they too can pass it on, and CHEC support certainly helps with this.”

All prizes for the Mashramani competitions will be awarded at a Prize Giving ceremony to be held in March.
