The Bequia Mission holds first Benefit Dinner

Providing help and hope to the people of St Vincent and the Grenadines for more than 40 years, The Bequia Mission held its first Benefit Dinner in Bequia, on March 10.{{more}}

The dinner was held at the Fig Tree, where short speeches were given by different persons, including those who benefited from the charity. There was live music from the Farine band.

A slideshow was presented on the work of the Mission, and a raffle, which included prizes such as day-tours through the Grenadines, sponsored by Sunsail St Vincent, amongst others, was drawn.

The Bequia Mission is an entirely voluntary, non-profit, non-denominational charity, dedicated to providing social, educational, and medical assistance to individuals and charitable organizations in St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Each year, the Mission ships educational supplies to ten schools in Bequia. In addition, a feeding programme for disadvantaged children is supported, and several deserving students are also sponsored, so as to allow them to attend college in St Vincent. The Mission also makes charitable donations of medical supplies to both the Bequia Casualty Hospital and Paget Farm Health Clinic.

The Mission is also engaged in supporting the Lewis Punnett Home, the House of Hope Society, the Bread of Life Children’s Home, St Benedict’s Day Nursery and Children’s Home, and the Liberty Lodge Training Centre for Boys.
