The spirit of Christmas was definitely in the air on Saturday as entertainer Terry Mexican Arthur and his team of ‘elves’ took to the streets to spread good cheer.
Saturday marked the seventh year for the Love Day project, conceived of by the former Square One band member.
With steel pan, drums and other musical instruments in hand, he and his team of eager volunteers made a scheduled stop at the Geriatric Hospital on Beckles Road, St Michael, where Mexican described the energy and vibe as simply “amazing”.
“We brought lots and lots of sunshine to the patients, the elderly who paved the way for us,” he said.
The group also pitched a tent in Queen’s Park, The City from where they distributed food, clothing and other items to members of the community, including several people in need.
“Love Day was just so great today. Thanks everyone,” he said at the end of the highly rewarding exercise.
As in previous years, several well-known entertainers, including other former Square One band members, came out to give back to the community.
The Barbados Vagrants & Homeless Society was also on board with the project.
However, Mexican singled out Miss Universe delegate Shannon Harris for her support.
“All the very best as she represents Barbados at Miss Universe,” he said, while stressing that “today [Saturday] was awesome”.
