Barbadian donor agency gets boost during British Airways’ 60th Anniversary – YWCA begs Media to help refurbish Deacons’ property

The Breakfast Club is not to be confused with the John Hughes’ film classic of 1985, this is the important initiative from the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) situated in Deacons, not far from Chanell Supermarket in Blackrock.

It is a YWCA programme which allows children of less fortunate families to get a healthy meal in the morning and learn in a mutually interactive way after class but before heading home, this drive is now over 1,000 strong and such a weekday event can dent the pockets of the most generous souls.

British Airways celebrating its 60th Anniversary with Corporate Responsibility, Ms Taylor asked for BA to purchase the goods needed not just for transparency but so BA could see how fast the money disappears when helping children get good meals.

Outgoing President of the YWCA, Andrea Taylor, told a gathering of journalists how the initiative expanded beyond their wildest expectations {CLICK ON FOLLOWING ICON FOR FULL AUDIO: SMARTPHONE AND TABLET USERS, PLEASE CLICK ON  Ms Taylor‘s NAME FOR A LINK TO HEAR}

While Ms Taylor is pleased at how BA directly provides assistance with the Breakfast Club, she also feels it is a shame how so few other corporate entities donate or volunteer especially because Barbados is under such fiscal duress at the moment {CLICK ON FOLLOWING ICON FOR FULL AUDIO: SMARTPHONE AND TABLET USERS, PLEASE CLICK ON Ms Taylor‘s NAME FOR A LINK TO HEAR}

The YWCA President has pointed how the facility’s exterior has run ragged due to diverting funds towards the Breakfast Club, and Ms Taylor wants even the Media to come forward and donate muscle, brushes and paint to make the Deacons complex look resplendent once more – Andrea says she will do the video, photos and writing while Media make the YWCA look pretty again {CLICK ON FOLLOWING ICON FOR FULL AUDIO: SMARTPHONE AND TABLET USERS, PLEASE CLICK ON Ms Taylor‘s NAME FOR A LINK TO HEAR}
