Jamaica Crime News, Westmoreland: Leroy Thompson, is a single parent who resides at Cooke Street, in Savanna-la-mar, Westmoreland and he is now making an appeal to members of the public for assistance towards his daughter’s education.
The 39-year-old Bag Juice vendor says he is now faced with crucial challenges to give his 7-year-old son Levan Thompson, and his 11-year-old daughter, Valena Thompson, a good education.
Thompson who plays the role of mother and father to both his children stated that, his job of selling bag juice can hardly meet the needs of his children, especially his brilliant daughter.
He mentioned that his daughter is doing well in school and for several years now she has emerged among the top students in her classes
Young Valena has cropped several awards through her brilliance, but he has come to a crossroad where he does not have the money to fund his daughter’s education.
Her aim in life is to be a lab technician and Thompson’s dream is to help his daughter so that she can one day meet her dreams, but for now, it is only a dream because he cannot afford the proper food, clothing and education for both his children.
Miss Marlet Mitchell-Davy, the class teacher at the Sir Clifford Campbell Primary school which Valena attends, says she is a promising student, who is very bright, hardworking and always looking ahead.
Anyone wanting to assist Mr. Thompson can contact him at 876 318-8771.
