Alpha brings cheer to sick children
The Alpha Club of Hindsbury Primary School brought Christmas cheer to the patients of the Paediatric Ward of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) yesterday morning as they showered them with gifts and songs of the season.
Teacher Rosamond Payne-Harewood said the club was a spin-off from the Optimist South of Barbados. It consisted of 18 members and had been functioning for about three years.
“Every year they have been doing various projects and this is one in which the club members hold cake sales and other activities in which they raise funds to buy gifts for children in the children’s ward at the QEH, because they want to see these children at the QEH happy for the Christmas season,” she added.
