THE KIWANIS CLUB of Bridgetown launched a new-look Silver Dollar for Children Drive in Independence and Heroes Squares today.
Instead of people laying their coins on the sidewalk, 80 volunteers, from the eight recipient charities, pounded the pavements of Broad Street and Swan Street in an effort to help raise $150 000.
Kiwanis Club of Bridgetown president Ken Knight said despite the economic downturn, members of the public were still giving, even if in reduced amounts. (HLE)
