Mothers honoured


Carlyn Leacock and Shem Goddard

Mother’s Day 2013 might be forever etched in the minds of 11 special women.

Yesterday during the 13th annual Mum this One’s for You show, held at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, 11 mothers, one from each parish across Barbados, were treated like royalty.

Heather Greene, Inez Pearl Barrow, Nadene Wilkinson Cora Griffith, Patricia Corbin-Alleyne, Deborah Anderson, Shirley Roberts, Angela Young, Audlean Chandler-Boyce, and Sylvanie Layne, Jennifer Baker were recognised for the roles they play in their communities.

The “queens” and the audience were also treated to performances from some of the top entertainers including John King, Carlyn Leacock, Mac Fingall. Biggie Irie and Philip 7 and Desmond Fowl Weekes, Kareem and Zikiya Agard, and the Israel Lovell Foundation Drummers and Dancers.

The women, all over the age of 35, are selected by Pauline Hunte who goes into the community. She searches for mothers who have been contributing to the nation all their lives.

In an earlier interview with Barbados TODAY Weekes said the motivation for starting the show was to recognise and honour the mothers who “have been out there working hard and have produced children who have gone worldwide and contributed to the world scene”. (DS)
