It was all for charity, and the members of the Queen’s College Association and their friends had a great evening of camaraderie at the Barbados Yacht Club earlier this month.

Highlight of the fund-raising tea party was a bonnet parade and the ladies pulled out the stops to let creativity flow. The result was an array of interesting headpieces.

Proceeds from the event will go towards a scholarship fund to support one QC student’s studies at the UWI, Cave Hill. (GC)
