‘A St Mary Me Come From’ furnace of giving

Author: webmaste | Filed under: Charity

Clifton “Capleton” Bailey walked his talk in a big way on Thursday September 13, 2007 as he made presentations to a number of schools and organizations, using funds raised at his annual Benefit concert, A St Mary Mi Come From, that took place on August 5, 2007. Annotto Bay’s Grays Inn Sports Complex was buzzing with excitement, as children from different schools performed with dance, song and cultural recitation. One school’s choral group presented a moving song written especially for Capleton, whose altruism and thoughtfulness has impacted the lives of so many.

Capleton’s manager, Claudette Kemp, said ‘A St Mary Me Come From’ “marks Capleton’s contribution to the community”, naming the Port Maria Hospital (a new X-Ray machine), Islington High School (a computer lab) and the Annotto Bay Hospital ($500,000 to build a waiting area for patients), Port Maria Primary School, the St. Mary Police Youth Club netball and football teams among the numerous beneficiaries over the years.
