Barbuda relief 710x450

Going Places Travel, member company of Sun Group Inc., Barbados is giving back to the community of Barbuda with a donation of XCD$10,000.

Going Places Travel continues to demonstrate its commitment to the people of Antigua and Barbuda, by assisting students who were evacuated to Antigua from the hurricane-ravaged island of Barbuda. Five students were granted scholarships to the Christ the King High School, the lone Catholic Girls High School on the island. Students were assisted with uniforms, school supplies, text books, school shoes and backpacks. Assistance will be ongoing to the displaced children of Barbuda with emphasis on their educational needs.

Chief Operating Officer of Going Places Travel Danielle St. John shared that the company was pleased to contribute. She commented, “We were saddened by the news of the devastation in Barbuda caused by Hurricane Irma. Here at Going Places Travel we are committed to supporting hurricane relief efforts in Caribbean territories. The fact that this donation will be focused on areas of education is not only in line with our existing corporate social responsibility efforts which seek to support education, but is also an integral part of supporting Barbuda students in achieving a sense of normalcy in their lives following the devastation caused by Irma."
