  Prime Minister Freundel Stuart  ( at left ) was there to support the Fund Raising event and spent some time greeting some of the other supporters.

           The Elliott And Loretta Belgrave Scholarship Trust was officially launched at a gala dinner at Government House Saturday night.          The Governor General spoke passionately about the mission on which he and his wife embarked to assist young people who could not afford to pay for their tertiary education.

         Over 350 supporters of the fund-raising event, held under a lavishly-decorated tent, listened with rapt attention as Sir Elliott outlined his vision.

          He told the men and women of corporate Barbados as well as the individual patrons present: “It seems to me that now would be a good time for those of us who can, to lend a little bit of help to those in more straightened circumstances, because talent should not be left buried in the sands of financial hardships.” (GC)
