Scotiabank renews sponsorship of GRFU Teach Them Young Programme

Scotiabank yesterday renewed its sponsorship of the Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU) Teach Them Young Programme.

During a simple ceremony at the rugby field in the National Park, the bank’s representatives, George Scott and Rohan Albert ceremoniously presented a cheque to one of the participants of the weekly Saturday Programme.

According to the programme’s coordinator, Troy Yhip “the funding is used to offset meals and other things.”
