Volunteers with the Love Day Project went into communities today to spread Christmas cheer to Barbadians.
In addition to the sounds of the Tuk Band, many volunteers, including entertainers, walked through various communities, singing Christmas carols, handing out gifts to little boys and girls, hampers to the elderly, and lots of smiles.
It was a fun-filled activity which started with a visit to the home of Calypsonian Smokey Burke who has been suffering with serious health challenges, which started earlier this year.
Speaking with Barbados TODAY at Queens Park, where the volunteers assembled, and a Christmas lunch was shared to less fortunate individuals, founder of the Love Day Project which is in its ninth year, Terry “Mexican” Arthur, said once again, Barbadians were generous in their donations, to assist the Project in carrying out its mandate of bringing joy to the less fortunate at Christmas time.
“We are getting ready to go into some neighbourhoods just to spread some love, play some music, give out some gifts and some hampers. It runs right down to probably the 10th of January, as we go through different parts of Barbados. This is one of the biggest in terms of the number of volunteers. The goal is to spread some love,” Arthur said. (AH)
