Residents at the East End Sunrise Cottage were presented with a 32" flat screen television courtesy of Cayman National.

The Sunrise Cottage is home to six seniors and is managed by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).

DCFS Adult Special Needs Programme Supervisor Dawn Rankine said the new TV replaces a small screen set which had stopped functioning after it was struck by lightning earlier this year.

"Television is the residents' primary source of entertainment, and it was a great loss when the other one was damaged; I thank Cayman National for considering the needs of the residents," Ms Rankine said.

In making the presentation, Cayman National's Corporate Communications Senior Executive Claudia Welds said: "Cayman National's commitment to corporate citizenship includes ensuring that our elderly are provided with the care that they deserve.

"We are pleased to make this donation in order to provide the clients of the East End Sunrise Cottage with a medium whereby they can be kept informed and entertained and continue to feel a sense of belonging in our society."

Others present at the handing over were DCFS Disaster Services Coordinator Lynda Mitchell, CNB's Executive Assistant Christy Braggs, and Sunrise Cottage staffers and residents.
