Former national middle distance star Waveney Benn continued her contribution to sports development in Guyana by making another presentation of equipment on Monday to burgeoning entity Three Peat Promotions.
It was the second gesture of goodwill from the former athletic star following donations to the Demerara Cricket Club and the Malteenoes Sports Club.
Coordinators of the Guinness Cage Championship, Three Peat Promotions, received a quantity of footballs from Benn at her North Ruimveldt abode.
Angel Stuart received the equipment on behalf of the entity.
In brief remarks, Benn revealed that the donation was made possible through the efforts of UK-based Software firm 1E and its staff, who all contributed to the procurement of the balls.
Benn, who dominated the local circuit in the late 1970s and early eighties before migrating to the United Kingdom, returns annually to give back to aspiring young athletes.
She has now ventured into other disciplines, notably cricket and football. According to an official release from Three Peat Promotions, “This is not the first time that the UK Software firm 1E has supported Benn in her endeavour and according to her CEO Sumir Karayi expressed delight in extending his goodwill once again.”
Benn added, “I have an excellent relationship with my Company and Staffers and I would like to extend my gratitude to all of them, especially to Mr. Karayi and Denise Shillito, we are a family.”
In response, Stuart thanked the former track star for the contribution and urged that the two entities remain committed to the development of local sports.
