HELPING the less fortunate and equipping them with the basic essentials to live a happy and productive life is what the 31 Club is all about.

Spokesperson for 31 Club Charity Outreach Anne Collinge said that the ladies of the club were inspired by the news that two pupils from Hillcrest were determined to go back to school after suffering extensive injuries in an accident, saying: “The lads were left disabled and the 31 Club ladies wanted to give them a head start on the new journey they are about to take — which is why we donated iPads to them.”

The pupils, whose names are known to the Fever, were admitted at the Hillcrest Government Hospital under the care of their Occupational Therapist, Wadine Estrice, who said they were very excited to be going back to school and can’t wait to make new friends.

Speaking on behalf of the hospital, Estrice­ said that they are very happy for the boys to be going back to school to further their studies.

“We are happy for them because the hospital only caters for older people and now they will get to regroup, meet people their age and have a new start,” said the occupational therapist.

In conclusion, the young men thanked the 31 Club ladies for equipping them with the iPad and hard drive, saying that they know how expensive these things are and they are really grateful for them.
