A charitable foundation will hold its second annual ‘Ready, Set, Learn!’ back-to-school drive on Saturday afternoon, 24 Aug. at Constitution Hall in George Town.

Free school supplies will be available from Pursuit of Excellence – The Lloyd Barker Foundation from 1‑5pm on Saturday to those in need of additional supplies or for those who are unable to purchase supplies, according to organisers.

The event, at the former George Town Town Hall, will also feature face painting, light refreshments and entertainment, including a guest DJ. There will also be a paediatrician on site to deliver guidance and tips to facilitate healthy learning throughout the school year.

Last year, at its inaugural school supplies drive, the foundation gave away supplies to 217 students.
