John Barnard, local representative for United Insurance, presented the supplies to the staff at the hospital.

It is our duty as a good corporate citizen to give support to those institutions and activities which add value to the lives of the people in our communities and we are indeed happy to make such a worthy donation to the hospital,” said Barnard.

The hospital also received an added bonus, as Barnard and a few friends also made a personal donation of a few additional medical supplies and a refrigerator to the island’s sole medical facility. Sister Peters and the staff of the Bequia Hospital, when receiving the supplies, expressed their sincere gratitude for the donations and the support of United Insurance and its associates.
