New game launched to assist diabetes organisation


Share post:

THE BARBADOS DIABETES Foundation is in need of funding.

After revealing it takes in excess of $1.5 million annually to run the organisation, officials today launched a new gaming initiative to aid them fiscally.

Communications officer for the raffle-type game, Mark Anthony Thornhill, said that they understood the importance of the cause and were more than happy to dedicate all their efforts to the foundation.

He said the game – NasCash of PULL-TABS Barbados – was licensed particularly for the Barbados Diabetes Foundation and most proceeds will go towards that organisation.

Thornhill was speaking at a Press briefing at the Foundation’s Warrens, St Michael home.

Dr Cally Boyea, acting chief executive officer of the Foundation, called on the public of Barbados to be most generous in their donations.

Tickets will be distributed to various community outlets, rum shops and other businesses. (MR)
