SENIORS from Flanker, a community outside of the St James capital, Montego Bay, have heaped praises on the Sandals Resorts for work it has been doing in the community. “Sandals is always looking out for Flanker,” said a joyful Myrtle Oates, a golden-ager and long-time resident of the community, during a special treat for the elderly staged by the Sandals Foundation ambassadors in the Montego Bay region on Wednesday at the Flanker Peace and Justice Centre.

“Butch’ Stewart (Sandals chairman) and his people who work for Sandals are good people and anywhere they go God will bless them,” Oates said, while sharing in the sumptuous meal and entertainment provided by the Sandals Foundation team which has been bringing Christmas cheer to that community for the past several years. The previous day, the Foundation staged a treat for some 200 children at the same venue.
