The Joy Spence Appleton Estate Rum Experience (JSAERE) and the J Wray and Nephew Limited (JWN) Foundation joined hands for Labour Day 2019 in support of the Maggotty Health Clinic and Maggoty High School, both located in St Elizabeth.

The team did painting and landscaping to give the Maggotty Health Clinic a much-needed facelift.

The clinic, as explained by Public Health Nurse, Karleen Williams-Cranston, is the only one in the area that offers a wide array of health treatments and care to hundreds of persons weekly.

In addition to work at the health clinic, the high school was presented with a donation of $300,624 from the JSAERE and the JWN Foundation, to facilitate their own Labour Day undertaking.

The front of the school had been noted to have lacked a paved roadway, which resulted in injuries to students and staff, and damage to vehicles because of the uneven terrain.

Additionally, the dust from the roadway has been a source of respiratory issues for both students and staff, as explained by Maggotty High Vice-Principal, Andrew Morris.

The JSAERE & JWN Foundation efforts were geared at giving back to the community in which they operate, offering support to the community that has contributed to the success of J Wray and Nephew Limited over its long history.
