Digicel, the “Bigger, Better Network”, is again working with the Junior Chamber International Barbados to ensure that its annual fair themed ‘A Special Day for Special Children’ is a success.

The fair, which comes off this Saturday at Ilaro Court – the official residence of the Prime Minister, is also in collaboration with the Barbados Council for the Disabled and provides a day of amusement, activities and live entertainment for some of the children with disabilities on the island.

Digicel’s commercial director, Alex Tasker applauded the JCI for its continued efforts to stage the event each year stating: “We understand and appreciate the importance of such initiatives for children with disabilities and disadvantaged children in Barbados and are pleased to continue to offer our support of this and similar activities that seek to provide the children with an avenue for excitement and enjoyment.”
