Businesses in Cayman are helping to fund the upcoming 50th anniversary celebrations of Barbados’s independence this year.
Goddard Catering Group’s Anthony Franklin recently handed over a check to Juliette Gooding-Michelin of the Barbadian Consulate, and Ishmael Goddard, proprietor of No. 1 Shoe Shop, has also pledged his company’s sponsorship, Ms. Gooding-Michelin said.
“We are very grateful that these community-minded corporate citizens have responded to our appeal for sponsorship, and hope that their contributions will inspire others, including the Barbadian-owned or managed businesses, to help make this a memorable occasion,” she said.
Barbados will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its independence from Britain on Nov. 30. Activities planned in Cayman include a dinner and ball at the Kimpton Seafire resort, a church service at St. George’s Anglican Church, a Bajan cultural fair at the Lions Centre and a Bajan Expo.
