The group traveled to George Town to join Deputy Governor Franz Manderson on the steps of the Government Administration Building to mark the day.

Sunrise has a busy few weeks planned in the lead-up to the Christmas holidays.

On Wednesday, Dec. 12, it is inviting the public to a Sunrise Family Christmas Service. The event takes place in the John Gray Memorial Church Hall from 6:30 p.m.

The theme of this year’s service is “Jesus is the Light of the World,” and all Sunrise clients will be featured in the program. While attendance is free, Sunrise extends its appreciation for any donations the public may wish to make.

If you value our service, if you have turned to us in the past few days or weeks for verified, factual updates, if you have watched our live streaming of press conferences or sent an article to a friend... please consider a donation. Quality local journalism was at risk before the coronavirus crisis. It is now deeply threatened. Even a small amount can go a long way to sustaining our mission of informing the public.
