A Cdn$2,000 cheque from the University of Guyana Guild of Graduates, Ontario, Canada, was presented recently to UG Vice-Chancellor Dr James Rose by Director of the Office of Resource Mobili-sation and Planning (ORMP), Dr Marlene Cox.

The cheque is the second donation by the body to assist UG in recovery activities following the 2005 flood that affected most of coastal Guyana. The first was given to the government last year, a UG press release said.

The Ontario Guild is UG's most active alumni group and it has made other contributions, including donations to the Endowment Fund, and provision of nine annual Convocation awards over the past 11 years to outstanding students in each of the faculties.

"The university is encouraged by the support and commitment it has received from the Guild of Graduates in Ontario, wishes them well and looks forward to their continued support," the release said.
