Thank you Flow Trinidad and Tobago / Columbus Communications for your generosity in donating Flow Free Service door prizes to the UKWC Diamond Jubilee Ball. (Photo by Rachel Lee Young shows MD of Columbus Communications, Brian Collins, with some of the prize winners)
The Jubilee Ball was a glittering occasion! Wonderful decorations courtesy Brian MacFarlane, very civilised music, surprise appearance by Wendell Constantine, lots of door prizes, raffle and silent auction.
We had a nice write up by Anne Hilton (past UKWC president) in Newsday.
Lots of photos in our Photo Album.
From the caption:
Lance-Corporal Andrew “Piper” Parsons gives the children of the Princess Elizabeth Centre a musical treat. Parsons and Brian MacFarlane will be guests at a gala fund-raising Diamond Jubilee Ball at the Hyatt Regency, Port of Spain, on June 9 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. Parsons has been flown in especially for the event and has been loaned to the UK Women’s Club by the London Scottish Regimental Band. Photo: Abraham Diaz.
Trinidad and Tobago is now officially a developed nation.
When the OECD DAC list was updated in October, Trinidad was missing from the list, which means it is no longer classified as a developing nation.
So I guess we can expect less overseas aid in the future...
