Angels at heart


Added 08 November 2012


With Christmas in mind, the Barbados Prison Fellowship launched its annual Angel Tree project yesterday. The project collects donations of gifts and food items  for children between the ages  of six months and 16, whose parents are in prison. Here, the chairman of the Barbados Christian Council, Monsignor Vincent Blackett (left), and the executive director of the fellowship, Thomas Watts, lighting the Angel Tree at the Barbados Public Workers’ Cooperative Credit Union at Belmont, St Michael.
