A soldier who suffered a gunshot injury to the neck at Camp Cumuto on Tuesday has died.
However, an investigation has been launched into the circumstances surrounding his death.
Players of the Maloney Pacers Basketball Club and youth development programme will be hosting a “Breakfast Fund-raiser” to raise funds that will go towards travelling expenses for the FIBA/Antilles 3x3 International Youth Championships, set for St Lucia next weekend, where they will represent T&T.
Pacers will take their talents to tackle the best the region has to offer in the boy’s competition.
Representing T&T in the girls’ division is Enterprise Golden Stars, led by former outstanding player and head coach Eric Knights.
Both teams emerged winners of the inaugural National Under-17 3x3 Championships hosted by the National Basketball Federation of T&T’s (NBFTT) late last year.
The Maloney team fund-raiser is carded to run from 7 am – 11 am on Sunday at the Maloney Indoor Sports Arena.
The breakfast menu includes roasted, fried, sada and coconut bakes with a variety of fillings like saltfish, smoked herring, baigan choka, pumpkin choka, potato choka, sausage, egg, and cheese. The drinks options are coffee, tea bags and fresh juice. Sweetbreads and cakes are also on sale.
Each breakfast costs $30.
