AARON HUMES Reporting: The Purple Spirit Band of St. Luke Methodist Primary School this afternoon received a timely donation of musical instruments, without which they were in danger of being unable to participate in the annual Band Fest sponsored by LOVE FM.

They are a favorite in the City for major events, and the Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation and Poverty Alleviation stepped in today under the Community Action for Public Safety Project (CAPS).

Minister of State in the Ministry and Lake Independence area representative, Mark King, said that the school and surrounding area will continue to benefit from the program, which tackles the problem of youth development especially for out-of-school youth.

Accepting the donation on behalf of the school and the band is their manager and vice-principal, Carolyn Welch, who gave thanks for an end to a decade of frustration and decaying instruments.

King’s boss, Minister Anthony Martinez, promised more to come with the concurrent Southside Poverty Alleviation Program, including repairs to one leaking roof.

The CAPS project goes for four years at a cost of $10 million, and includes upgrades to Gwen Lizarraga High School, Wagner’s Youth Facility and the Youth Cadet Corps among others.

It is sponsored by the Inter-American Development Bank.
