Fifty people, mostly senior citizens, from the City of Bridgetown were treated to a special breakfast on Christmas Day.
Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey Bostic welcomed the seniors to the Barbados Labour Party headquarters on Tuesday to share in a nutritious breakfast which was prepared just for them.
Barbados Labour Party candidate, who will attempting to win the seat in the upcoming general election, told Barbados TODAY that this was first of what he hopes will be an annual event.
“I invited seniors, especially those who live alone because I didn’t want to bring away those who had families, so that they could have some fellowship on Christmas Day with some other people. We made sure they had some breakfast and enjoyed themselves for a bit and did not have to spend the whole day at home,” Bostic said.
The event which started at 8 a.m. and ended around 10 a.m. included an impromptu singing session. (DS)
