H.E. Lady Sandra Williams accepted a donation of EC$2100 on behalf of the Halo Foundation, from Lady Alice Roberts of Roberts & Co., Attorneys at Law. Each year, a sum of money is collected from the staff at Roberts & Co., and the amount is matched by the law firm for contribution to a chosen charity.
Lady Williams expressed appreciation to the management and staff of Roberts & Co. and stated that at the request of Lady Roberts, the funds will be used specifically to assist the Sunshine Home For Girls. Consequently, the donation will be applied to the “You Can Help!” campaign which is an initiative of the Antigua and Barbuda High Commission in the United Kingdom. The campaign supports three causes in Antigua and Barbuda — inclusive of the Sunshine Home — as these causes continue to face additional challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, over £30,000 has been raised from a £145,000 target.
