A MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR indoor facility is on the cards for the Young Men’s Christian Association on Pinfold Street, Bridgetown.

General secretary of the 135-year-old organisation, David Norgrove, said plans for the building expected to cost in the vicinity of $10 million, were currently with the Town Planning Department, and philanthropy and the generosity of Barbadians were being sought  in the interim to fund the venture.
