The St. Peter HIV/AIDS Education Committee is reaching out with a free gospel concert in Speightstown on September 14.
Several well-known groups and artistes, including the Silvertones, will be sharing their talents under the theme “Reaching Out” at the Speightstown Esplanade.
The combined choir of Calvary Baptist Church, hailing from St. Joseph, Repaired Worship Ministries of St. Peter and the remarkable saxophonist Ricky Niles will be among the ministries in gospel performing from 6 p.m to 9 p.m.
The St. Peter HIV/AIDS Education Committee is one of several islandwide working under the aegis of the Community Development Department to inform and educate citizens about protecting themselves from the deadly disease.
The arts and sports are among disciplines adopted under this strategy.
An officer of the Community Development Department said members of the HIV/AIDS Committee would be visiting homes and public meeting places in the environs of Speightstown to share information and hand out flyers.
The Committee is also appealing to Barbadians to bring non-perishable food items to the gospel concert at the Speightstown Esplanade for donation to the HIV/AIDS Food Bank on Jemmot’s Lane, St. Michael.
