10-Year-Old & Gombeys Donate To Family Centre

July 5, 2018 | 3 Comments

Family Centre is singing the praises of young Xenai Savery who decided to donate to the organization, and as a result, has inspired his Gombey troupe to do the same.

After Xenai’s 10th birthday donation to The Family Centre, in the amount of $1,000, Warwick Gombey troupe wanted to support, encourage and celebrate his philanthropic heart by graciously giving up their pickings from Heritage Day and donate them to the Family Centre.

Irwin Trott, the troupe leader and his Captain Harley Place joined Xenai in presenting a check to the Family Centre, adorned in his regalia.

According to the Captain, Warwick Gombey Troupe believe in highlighting, uplifting and supporting their dancers. They chose to support his gift and to give him a spotlight for his generosity.

“If our youth are our future, then our future is very bright”, stated Martha Dismont, Executive Director of Family Centre. “Xenai’s giving spirit is truly inspiring, and his efforts shed a light on what young people can do when they put their minds and hearts to it.”

According to Xenai’s mother, Xenia Williams-Savery, “Xenai was so touched at the age of 7 when we, as a family, decided to anonymously provide a Christmas to a family through the Family Centre.

“When he received his Gombey check this year he’d asked if we can use it and give to a family again. There wasn’t enough time to arrange it and it was then that he’d decided instead of accepting gifts he will accept donations for the Family Centre.”

Mrs. Dismont concluded, “If children are the best ones to lead the way to what we should be doing for our future, then, please lead the way! We need to celebrate their goodness and good will. Family Centre is pleased and thankful for Xenai’s gift, and with his Gombey troupe, we celebrate his spirit and generosity!”

    This is a wonderful story and one that is a pleasure to read.

    At ten years old to have such a caring heart shows that you can give early and often in the spirit of caring for one another on this island.

    We as adults have a lot to learn from this young person – thank you for this lesson today Xenai.
