Pink Ladies raise funds, community spirit

The Pink Ladies’ annual Christmas Tea and Bazaar at Camana Bay on Saturday had something for everyone, including a wide selection of handmade crafts, cakes and entertainment.  

The event is a major fundraiser of the Pink Ladies Volunteer Corps, which was set up in 1980 by Olive Miller MBE, and Evelyn Andresen under the auspices of the National Council of Voluntary Organisations for two main purposes: 

To provide much-needed voluntary help at The Pines Retirement Home and the Cayman Islands Hospital  

To raise funds to meet some of the needs of the retirement home, and to purchase equipment for the hospital and assist NCVO projects and other causes throughout the community. 

All of the money raised by the Pink Ladies are donated back into the community. 

This year at the bazaar, the Humane Society held a book sale, Cayman HospiceCare sold Christmas ornaments and 2015 calendars, and ARK’s “Giving is Receiving” initiative was part of Santa’s Grotto, where children submitted their Christmas wish while helping families in need.
