Supporting local charities

In previous years, we have conducted a raffle/auction raising money for a local charity. Due to the services they provide, we have always ended up donated money to the Barbados Council for the Disabled. Although we do not intend to have a raffle/auction this year, we will provide a donation box at the venue for anyone who wishes to contribute to their cause.

The Barbados Council for the Disabled is a non-governmental umbrella body championing the rights of all persons with disabilities, ensuring their full and effective integration into society. The Council's source of income is from project funding, donations and fundraising activities. The council offered the first bus service of its kind for wheelchair users in Barbados. Amongst all of their services, they provide translation for menus, notices, signs, and all other documents into Braille. It is the only Braille translation service in Barbados. Badminton in the Caribbean fully supports their cause and as with previous events, will pass on all donations to the Council prior to leaving Barbados. Don’t take our word for it, have a look at pictures from the 2012 experience and make sure you don’t miss out in 2015.
