Keshorn, bmobile bring Christmas joy

Newsday :: 18.12.2017

Double Olympic medallist, Keshorn Walcott, warmly opened the doors of his Valsayn residence, to children from the St Dominic's Children's Home – Arima and Belmont – as he and long-time partner bmobile hosted a special Christmas treat recently.

The 24-year-old javelin thrower brought early Christmas cheer to the youngsters by providing them with a day of fun and games in his backyard. Thie delighted bunch bumped around in Bouncy Castles, played basketball and capitalised on their opportunity to take photos with the 2012 London Olympic javelin champion.

Walcott revealed that he was grateful to be in TT this year for the holidays and opted to spread some Christmas joy with the local communications company.

"We wanted these children to feel love and appreciation, so I decided to open up my home to them. Connecting with them has been a learning experience for both me and the kids. They always have the weirdest questions. I feel very pleased to partner with bmobile once more and treat the kids of St Dominic's Home," he stated.

Keshorn Walcott sports oversized glasses while holding this child on a day of fun with St Dominic's Home.

One of Walcott's personal highlights of this event was interacting with a child who had not yet mastered the art of eating with a knife and fork.

Walcott added with a smile, "Whenever somebody teaches me something, I always feel the need to teach somebody else. I remember a few years ago I was the same. And as big as I am, I was taught, so I just decided to help him out."

TSTT's Vice President of Marketing, Camille Campbell, expressed pleasure to have jointly hosted the St. Dominic's Children's Home Christmas Treat with the national hero.

"Giving back to our citizens is a key element in our day-to-day operations at bmobile. We have assisted multiple homes through our Book Buddies (textbook and school supplies distribution) Programme earlier this year, and we saw this opportunity to bring smiles to the young ones at St Dominic's, as an avenue to spread the Christmas spirit. We have always endorsed Keshorn and working with such a role model has always been an uplifting experience, especially when children are involved," Campbell declared.
