Staff Spread Christmas Cheer

December 21, 2018

Patrons of the Barbados Welfare Department and pediatric patients of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital will have a slightly merrier holiday season, following a donation of children’s gifts from Banks Holdings Limited (BHL) staff.

Dozens of wrapped presents were donated to the two facilities during December for distribution on Christmas Day.

The initiative was conceptualized by the company’s People Department. People Manager Banks (Barbados) Breweries Ltd. (BBBL), Gracelyn Barker, says staff members wanted to ensure that the most vulnerable in the community had a happy Christmas.

“We asked staff to purchase a child’s toy or book of their choice, which we donated,” she said. “BHL is always looking for ways to make a positive impact in our communities, and there is no better time to reach out than at Christmas.”

People Officer BBBL, Danielle Maughn, says plans are already underway to expand the initiative in 2019. “We had an extremely positive response to the project which we want to expand on in the future. The goal will be to work with more vulnerable groups and charities and to help more people.”
