Castries, Saint Lucia: Day #26 in the 2022 Northern Cluster Grassroots/ Ministry of Youth Development and Sports continued on Friday, August 26, with more enjoyable activities. 

As per the camp schedule, the campers experienced their 2nd Sleep Over for this year’s cricket camp. The highlight of the night was a “Talent Show” put on by the campers. Out of a cast of 6 contestants, ten-year-old SHEBA JN PIERRE rocked the crowd with her sensational dancing talent.

She received a cash prize for her effort. The other contestants also had the group screaming with laughter and excitement as they put on their performances.

M.C Skyy Smith did a great job in hosting the show.

Thanks to our judges, Bernie Joseph and Afra Forde, for doing a wonderful job.

Preceding the talent show, the campers were divided into four groups who competed against each other in several activities including catching, target throwing and bowling at the stamps.

On Friday, August 26, the Grassroots campers presented to former Gros Islet cricketer/umpire/selector and administrator; TIMOTHY ‘ALECO’ DELFUS a donation of grocery items and cash. DELFUS, now in his early 80s was extremely grateful to the Grassroots campers for this timely contribution.
