ONE of Ghana’s financial institutions, Cal Bank, at the weekend donated an amount of ¢10,000 to the Street Academy in Accra.
The donation was in support of the annual Street Academy X’mas party which came off at the premises on Saturday.
Speaking to the Times Sports, Cal Bank Director of Operations, Mr Peter Hall, who made the donation on behalf of the bank, assured the institution of their support whenever they are called on.
“Street Academy has been one institution we have been supporting for some time now and because of the relationship we have with them, when they call on us, we deem it as a social responsibility to support.
“Having been in operation for the past 30 years, we support and give back to the less privileged in communities through our social responsibilities.
Our support falls under sports, health, culture and lesser known sports, and over the years Street Academy and other institutions have received our support when they call on Cal bank,” he stressed.
Receiving the dummy cheque was the Director of Street Academy, Mr Ataa Lartey, who thanked Cal Bank for their timely support during this pandemic and assured that, it would be put to proper use.
“I want to thank Cal Bank for their unflinching support for the past years and also coming to our aid whenever we call on them. On behalf of the Street Academy, we say thank you for this kind gesture and we are very grateful,” he added.
Street Academy, a non-profit sports and cultural institution, which has been in existence for the past 25 years, sees to the well-being of the less-privileged in society.
The Academy uses education, culture, and sports to expose the hidden talents of the less fortunate children living on the streets of Accra.
