The Police Cooperative Credit Union (PCCU has once again partnered with the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF) in sponsoring the annual Police Christmas Caroling Contest. Since 2012, the Police Credit Union has been the major sponsor of this very important event on the calendar of activities of the organization and the citizens of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
On Monday November 11, 2019, Mrs. Ayanna Samuel, manager of the PCCU handed over a sponsorship cheque in the sum of $3900 to Commissioner of Police, Mr. Colin John to offset expenses for this year’s contest. During the handing over ceremony, Mrs. Samuel said that the PCCU operates as one of the premier financial institutions in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) and has been in existence for the past sixteen (16) years. She disclosed that while the PCCU is the smallest credit union in SVG, it has an asset base of over 19.1 million dollars.
According to the manager, the PCCU continues to partner with the RSVGPF on numerous activities and has chosen once again to sponsor the Police Caroling Contest for the seventh (7th) consecutive year. She claimed that PCCU endeavours to honour its corporate social responsibility to the community of SVG and encourage persons to join the credit union. Mrs. Samuel reminded all that anyone can join the PCCU because as its motto says “you don’t have to be a police to be a member”.
Commissioner John in accepting the cheque, expressed gratitude to the PCCU on behalf of the Police Force for sponsoring the Police Caroling contest. The Commissioner said that the PCCU was born out of the Police Force and it is very commendable that the PCCU continues to give back to the police force in many ways including this sponsorship. Commissioner John said that he is very optimistic that the PCCU and the Police Force will continue to work together in the future to realize tangible and mutual benefits to both organizations.
