Twelve days of CitCo Christmas charity

Darrell Bradley

The countdown is officially on to December twenty-fifth, that most wonderful time of the year as the song goes. But for many, especially after a year of tragedy, it will not be so special. So while you get into the Christmas spirit with the traditional decorations, trimmings and lots of family time, the Belize City Council is hoping that residents will also share the Christmas spirit with others. On its own, the Council is repeating an initiative from last year – its own twelve days of Christmas. Today, the first day, Mayor Darrell Bradley and councilors gave residents of Sister Cecilia Home for the Elderly a day out including free lunch at B.T.L. Park. He told us more about their charity campaign on Thursday.

 

Darrell Bradley, Belize City Mayor

“The idea was the during the Christmas season, we really can promote a great degree of goodwill and a good spirit amongst members of our community and I think that we should show ways of compassion and service to others. From December first which will be tomorrow until twelve working days into the month of December. The various staff of the City Council including various departments will be mobilizing to do random acts of charity and kindness within the city. Tomorrow we will be mobilizing an event with some of the older people within our community who are often times forgotten. That will be coordinated by the office of the Mayor, so members of our council and myself will be sharing a meal and sharing some entertainment and fellowship with older people within our community. We have various other projects that involve going to schools; we have repair works that involve refurbishing, to a minor degree, people’s homes. We have various sanitation projects that will be going on through these twelve days.”
