IN GOOD COMPANY: Highlights from the holiday party season + Bishop deSouza’s send-off

ALL MY CHILDREN: Dec. 18, St. Andrew. As in years past, PM Portia Simpson-Miller opened up her Vale Royal residence to dozens of youngsters from her constituency and other Kingston communities for a Christmas treat, which included some bonding time with the PM. (Photo: OPM)

FAN FAVOURITE: Dec. 26, Kingston. Few things matter to sprint queen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce as much as the charity work of her non-profit The Pocket Rocket Foundation, which recently (in partnership with a few corporate sponsors) brought together scores of young children from Corporate Area communities for a special holiday treat, complete with gifts and fun rides galore. (Photo: Sleek Photography)

BIG BROTHER: Dec. 26, Trelawny. Like Fraser-Pryce, the World’s Fastest Man got to spend some quality time with his young fans over the holidays, treating them to Christmas presents and other goodies at a Boxing Day fair in his hometown of Sherwood Content. Meanwhile, Bolt was recently named World Male Athlete of the Year by L’Equipe, the popular French magazine that has honoured him in the past. He is also a nominee for Sportsman of the Year at the upcoming RJR Sports Foundation Awards, scheduled for Jan. 15 at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston. (Photo: Usain Bolt/Facebook)

ALL SMILES: Dec. 26, Kingston. Some of music’s finest and the fans who love them were out in their numbers at I Love Soca, “Jamaica’s Coolest Cooler Fete,” which brought electric energy to Hope Gardens on Boxing Day. Singer Chris Martin and this pair of babes were clearly having a blast. (Photo: Live Stush)

LAST RITES: Dec. 29, Kingston. The official funeral for former Anglican bishop Neville deSouza took place at Half Way Tree’s St. Andrew Parish Church, where PM Simpson-Miller and Errald Miller offered words of comfort to grieving widow Iona deSouza. Bishop deSouza, who passed away on Dec. 12, after ailing for some time, was 87 years old. (Photo: OPM)
