Changing one child can ‘make a difference’


Share post:

The difference needs only to start with one child.

This was the view of trustee of the Sandy Lane Charitable Trust, Pippa Challis, during the opening ceremony of the start of another season of the Sport For Life programme at Kensington Oval on Saturday.

“The way the trust looks at it is if we can change the life of one child then we have made a difference. If we can change the life of one child and one family in Barbados then we might be moving the boat somewhere else, we might be changing the direction of the nation.

“I have just handed over a cheque of $25 000 to keep the programme running but your deal is that you have to be the best that you can be and come out and try,” she said. (RG)
