Great response to Alkins’ appeal


MORE SUPPLIES are on the way to the thousands of people in the Caribbean affected by recent hurricanes.

Chairman of Calvin Alkins Customs Services Inc., Calvin Alkins, said his organisation did business in the territories affected, including Dominica and Barbuda. Once he found out about the damage they suffered due to the turbulent weather systems, he said he felt moved to help out.

Alkins said he reached out to Hartley Henry, adviser to Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, and pledged their support, sourcing one boat as a start and soliciting the help of members of corporate Barbados.

However, as supplies began to pour in, Alkins said he realised more than one boat was required.  (TG)
