3 Tuesday 24th November 2015 MUSTIQUE CHARITABLE TRUSTS AUCTION The Trusts will improve the opportunities for children young people and vulnerable adults while supporting the development of sustainable local communities throughout St Vincent and the Grenadines. 1 WELCOME MESSAGE Dear Friends of Mustique A very warm welcome to you all from the Trustees of the Mustique Charitable Trusts. Once again we are extremely grateful to Viscount Linley Orlando Rock and The Directors of Christies for their generous support tonight. 2015 has been another inspirational year for the Trusts. During the year the Trusts have helped more than 50 charities and organisations across a broad spectrum of the community in St Vincent and the Grenadines. None of this would have been possible without your generous support and for that we thank you all. It really does make a difference in a country that so often struggles financially to support its most vulnerable citizens. So please be generous and rest assured your donations are very much appreciated. We do hope you have a wonderful evening.

Twenty- one students were on board. Despite heroic rescue efforts 8 students died 2 were unaccounted for and 12 were injured. The Trusts responded by visiting the bereaved families to assess immediate needs and provide practical and financial help and met with the Government to assess longer term issues. The Trusts provided EC100000 to assist with the purchase of a new school bus in order to help reduce the chance of recurrence of this kind of tragedy. The new school bus arrived at the village on 19th March 2015. The Prime Minister Trustees and many members of the local community took the opportunity to come together to remember those who had lost their lives. WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT WE WOULD BE UNABLE TO RESPOND TO REQUESTS FOR HELP IN TIMES OF DISASTER 6 THE TRUSTS AT WORK SCHOOL MEAL PROJECT The Trusts investment in this project ensures that every day 350 school children receive a hot lunch and provides employment opportunities for members of the local community. Without this nutrition many students would simply not be able to return to school for the afternoon session. Something as simple as a nutritious lunch can often make the difference between academic success and failure. 7 THE TRUSTS AT WORK WORLD PEDIATRIC PROJECT Each year World Pediatric Project WPP mobilises pediatric diagnostic and surgical teams to provide specialist care at Milton Cato Memorial Hospital care that would otherwise be unavailable e.g. neurosurgery orthopaedic and re-constructive surgery. WPP anticipates reaching 650 children in 2015. The Trusts continue to support this important project which gives children access to lifesaving care. 8 THE TRUSTS AT WORK TREE PLANTING The Trusts support Treelympics a tree planting initiative that mobilises schools all over the world to plant trees and educate students about preserving the natural environment. The Vincentian students were excited to take part in the project and to learn about the tree planting process. 116 schools took part in the project and 12000 trees were planted. 9 THE TRUSTS AT WORK CRAFT FAIR Guests on the island were delighted with the variety of arts crafts and handmade items on display at the inaugural Mustique Craft Fair on the 5th August 2015. 35 artisans from St Vincent and Bequia participated and welcomed the opportunity to showcase their hand crafted items to the Mustique market. Banana art bags baskets jewellery note-cards soaps and beauty products were the top sellers. This was a real unification of the communities and sales were brisk 10 THE TRUSTS AT WORK BURSARY SUPPORT There are now 16 MCT students supported at the University of the West Indies Open Campus in St Vincent through the Trusts Bursary Programme. Awardees receive a contribution towards academic fees and a laptop. Online studies make for an intense schedule as the students balance studies with work and home life. Assigned mentors and a study buddy has made a huge difference in overcoming any challenges encountered. A special bursary was given to Kenville Horne for a laptop to assist with online studies for a Young Leaders programme at Oxford. Kenville was honoured with a Commonwealth Young Leaders Award from HM The Queen in June this year.
