Sport Minister Olivia Grange says that the Government is giving substantial financial support to the family of slain national football player, Tarania Clarke.
Minister Grange met with Tarania’s mother Charmaine Riley Clarke, her sister Tina Darby and coach Xavier Gilbert at the Minister’s offices in New Kingston.
The meeting took place ahead of the Service of Thanksgiving for Tarania set for the Excelsior High School Auditorium on December 22.
Tarania, who was stabbed to death October 31, also captained the Excelsior High School football team and was a member of the Waterhouse Football team in St. Andrew.
She will be interred at the Meadowrest Memorial Gardens.
