(CNS Local Life): A group of 25 fathers, who were acknowledged and nominated by their family members, have won prizes in the Family Resource Centre’s (FRC) #beadaddaily challenge. Tying the annual contest in with last month’s Father’s Day, the centre asked children across the Cayman Islands to write in to share anecdotes on how their fathers are there for them daily. Entries were emailed or posted onto the FRC’s Facebook page using the #beadaddaily hashtag.

Several entries also included pictures showing how fathers contributed to the well-being of their children.

“Society is often guilty of underestimating and undervaluing the role of good fathers,” said the centre’s programme coordinator, Charmaine Miller.

“The #beadaddaily campaign is just one way of acknowledging the powerful and enduring influence fathering has on children. Numerous studies show that those who have been cared for by fathers are usually more confident and more emotionally stable as adults.”

Winners and their families recently received their prizes at the FRC, though the grand-prize winner, Orvin Campbell, who won a $250 Camana Bay gift voucher, was off-island. The other winners were given various gift certificates.

We have created a new system to help us address questions we receive from the public for the press briefings. We are getting hundreds every day and it’s impossible to read and deal with them while the PB is in process as there are a lot of moving parts to being able to do the Zoom meeting, take notes and respond to their info in real time.

So we are asking people to send their questions each day BEFORE NOON to: covid-questions@caymannewsservice.com

This will give us a chance to read, sort and consolidate the questions so that we get to the issues that people are most concerned about.

Thanks for your help. In the meantime the ones you have sent will be sorted and collated.
