Charity set up at Mount Pleasant well advanced

(Story written by Robert Williams)

Setting up a charity  is  well advanced as  part  of  the  new  Memorandum of Understanding  between Mount  Pleasant  Academy  and  English  League  one  outfit Charlton  Athletic.

The Mountain to Valley  initiative  received  a  major  boost  this  weekend  when  officials  of  the  Charlton  Athletic flew  into  the  island  to  get close  up  and  personal  with  the  Mount Pleasant  football  family.

This  included  watching  the  Jamaica  Premier  League  game  at  Drax  Hall  on  Sunday  and  touring  the  Academy  facilities  on  monday  and  interacting  with  the  students.

Jason Morgan…..the  Chief  Executive Officer at Charlton Athletic Community Trust  explains  that  they  have  been  successful with  setting up charities  over  the  past  three  decades.

According to Morgan no time frame will be put on its completion.

The  Mount  Pleasant  senior  team  team  will  travel  to  the  South  London  club  as part of the M.OU……on a yearly basis  for a pre-season charity match at the valley.
