FORMER Cabinet Minister Tennyson Wells and his wife Stephanie donated $20,000 to Urban Renewal 2.0 to aid in its initiatives for social reform yesterday.
The couple, who presented the cheque to Prime Minister Perry Christie at the Cabinet office, said it was important that Bahamian youth are assisted and encouraged.
“This Urban Renewal programme has had much success,” Mr Wells said, “this country and the young people of this country really need help. I just want to encourage the Prime Minister to keep going with these people who are working with you to make sure to make it bigger and better than it is now. I hope that this demonstration would guide others to do likewise and help build the Urban Renewal foundation.”
A majority of the funds will be used to buy musical instruments for the Urban Renewal band.
