Pond Island – Fun-loving Jouvert jumpers will just about go to any length to celebrate the “Spirit” of carnival – and Jouvert Specialists, “Nothing But Alcohol” (NBA) are no exception.
The NBA team are teaming up with their lead sponsor, TelCell to bring some added excitement to this year’s jouvert jump, with lead “imbiber” Duncan van Heyningen, dropping by TelEm Group’s main office on Pond Island this week to exchange jouvert Tees with Lead Customer Representative, Suraj Ramdas of TelEm Group.
Both expressed their excitement about the buzz that is ringing through carnival this year in anticipation of the biggest (and loudest) Jouvert jump up to date.
“Everyone is knocked out at our NBA mock up Tees, which at a first glance looks like the real thing, until you take closer look. But it’s all in fun and in the spirit of Jouvert,” jokes Duncan.
“As the main sponsor of Carnival 2015, TelEm Group and sister company TelCell are happy to partner with fun-loving revellers such as Duncan and his NBA crew for the Jouvert event on Monday, said TelEm Group carnival core team coordinator, Cheryl Rismay.
Duncan mentioned that for a second consecutive year, their Jouvert Troupe will be contributing to a special cause after Carnival. “Last year we donated to the Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation and this year we are donating a portion of our proceeds to the HIV/Aids Foundation. The colours of our shirts this year are therefore Red”, he continued.
The Tees are being sold for $25 each at Booth 23-24 in the Carnival Village and with it, you can enjoy the NBA Jouvert Troupe, lots of TelCell goodies and more.
“We are planning to attract upwards of 600 participants in the TelCell/NBA troupe for Jouvert, so we would advise everyone to buy up their Tees early before they are all sold out,” continued Cheryl and Duncan.
Cheryl said participants can expect excellent music from the Small Axe and an overall fun and safe environment, wholesome fun, soft beverages and water to quench the thirst of revellers on the road.
