All hands on deck


Share post:

FOUR MONTHS AFTER she lost her home and all her possessions to fire, Esther Clarke may soon be turning her own keys again.

Some good Samaritans in the close-knit community of Sion Hill, St James, have come together to rebuild Clarke’s house in Brathwaite’s Road, following a blaze last October 12 that left her four children, her sister and the sister’s child, and a grandson homeless.

Neighbours, players and administrators of the nearby Newbury Sports Club, residents of Westmoreland and Orange Hill, all in St James, have put their hands to the plough in a collaborative effort, which started a few weeks ago, to ensure Clarke’s wood and wall structure is rebuilt.

They have been aided by monetary donations from the Mount Zion’s Missions, St James Methodist Church, the Seventh-Day Adventists and Carlton Mount Calvary churches, as well as members of corporate Barbados. (AGB)
