Three institutions Friday presented cheques totalling GH¢ 240,000 in support of the activities lined-up to mark the 50th anniversary celebration of the creation of the Brong-Ahafo Region.

Dormaa Traditional Council and Customs Inspection Company Limited donated GH¢ 10,000 each whilst the State Insurance Company presented a cheque for GH¢ 40,000.

Receiving the cheques in Sunyani to coincide with the inauguration of the official cloth for the anniversary, Mr. Kwadwo Nyamekye-Marfo, Regional Minister, thanked the donors and expressed the hope that the gesture would inspire other organisations to donate.

He appealed to individuals and organisations as well as citizens at home and abroad to financially and materially support the celebration.

Mr. Nyamekye-Marfo commended the traditional authorities who led the struggle for the creation of the region, formerly known as Ashanti-West in 1959.

As part of activities to mark the celebration there will be a tree planting exercise, quiz competition, clean–up exercises, cultural activities as well as a durbar of chiefs and people of the region.
