Friends and family of the late Lesley Barrow have set up a foundation in her memory.
And Lesley’s Legacy Foundation was officially launched on Saturday at the Barbados Museum where she was curator for 17 years before pursuing a career in law.

Lesley’s Legacy Foundation aims to contribute to Barbadian heritage and create a greater awareness of its links to the development history of Caribbean island nations.
Over the past year, the foundation has been working with Sheena Rose, a young Barbadian graphic artist, as she launches her career in animation.
Rose was one of three recipients of donations from the foundation’s first fund-raiser in December.
Presentations were also made to Alison Callender, curator of art and art history, and to the YWCA Building Fund. (GC)
