AS PART OF celebrations for the 50th year of Independence, the Nation Publishing Co. Limited will tomorrow launch its Pride-Up Barbados promotion to encourage all citizens to show their national pride.

The company will be hosting “Pride-up” Friday for customers at Nation House, Fontabelle, St Michael from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Throughout the day, people who purchase copies of the company’s Independence publication entitled 50: The Barbados Legacy will get a chance to win prizes by spinning the Wheel Of Independence, or taking a chance at the game Bajan Plinko. The commemorative magazine chronicles the last five decades of Barbados in an informative and exciting way.

“Pride-Up Barbados was conceptualised as a way for persons in Barbados to show their pride not just on Independence Day, but also leading up to this significant milestone,” said Valerie Hope, Head of Marketing & Communications, Nation Group.

“We hope that many members of the public as well as organisations will take up the call and showcase a level of national pride never seen before for our golden jubilee.”

People are also being encouraged to dress showing their national pride and share photos on social media using the hashtag #PrideUpBarbados.

The public can also listen to Starcom Network stations on Fridays for the segment Barbados We Honour to keep up to date with all of Nation Publishing’s 50th anniversary celebrations. (PR)
