Queen rewards two Bajans for generosity to the homeless


Share post:

Two Barbadians who have been providing free home-cooked meals to a homeless shelter every week for more than a decade, have been rewarded by Queen Elizabeth.

Trevor and Pamela Headley were yesterday named as winners of the 171st Commonwealth Points Of Light award in honour of their exceptional voluntary service.

A release from the British High Commission said the two purchase all of the ingredients to prepare hot meals in their own home, and have continued to deliver the meals throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to support to those living in the Clyde Gollop Night Shelter For Homeless Men.
