DR Joseph Haynes and his wife Esther, through their Health and Wellness Clinic, last Friday delivered on a promise and donated two lawn mowers to the Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC) which is in preparation mode for the new school term where sports will be featured prominently throughout Linden and Region 10 (Upper Demerara/Upper Berbice.
The new Honda brand and the reconditioned Troy Built manufactured lawn mowers, according to Dr Joseph Haynes, are two of the best brands one can find.
At the presentation ceremony at the Haynes Mall in Amelia’s Ward, Linden, and in the presence of his wife Esther, president of MSC Avery Trim, 1st Vice-president Norris King and General secretary Joseph Chapman, Dr Haynes noted : “My wife and I decided that we are going to do our part in ensuring that sports continues to be played at a level that is professional … we are fulfilling a promise that we made some time ago, actually before COVID-19, and so we can get the ball rolling as sports coming up and I think it is just in time for the level of the grass to be the way.”
He added: “We have a bigger plan but that will take some time as we plan to get a riding lawn mower for the Mackenzie Sports Club, so that it would be much easier and much faster to get the job done. Once you use them with care they can last a long time. They are quality mowers that should last a long time and they require very little maintenance.”
The Haynes called on the MSC management Committee headed by Avery Trim to maintain the level and the standards for sports like cricket and football among other sports and games at the main sports facility in the town of Linden.
He mentioned his aim to return the 20/20 football tournament which he created a few years ago at the MSC and said we plan to also do it again hopefully by the end of the year and he intends to get the 20/20 to reach World Cup standards saying “I know it is going to the World Cup.”
President of the MSC, Avery Trim, in response stated, “I would like to say a hearty thank you to Dr Haynes and his wife for this timely contribution. We appreciate the fact that you would have come in at a time which school sports is on the schedule and will start this month.
This would indeed be a good gesture to showcase that businessmen in Linden do care about sports in Linden. These two machines would definitely be used for its intended purpose.
