“Diagnostic Radiology is in full support of and would like to commend the Diocese in their efforts to help those in need. We are appreciative for the opportunity to be involved.” said a Diagnostic representative.

The fundraising tournament has become a permanent feature in the golf calendar and is held on the Friday before Independence Day. It is well attended by golf pros and golf enthusiasts, and CEO of Neptune Mobile and national player Julian Jordan who entered a team, gave the Golf Classic a thumbs up.

“The RC Diocese Charity Golf Classic is a great way to support a worthy cause while having fun with friends and networking with business partners. I am familiar with the social programmes of the Roman Catholic Church which has been helping people in need for many years,” said Jordan, adding, “I would like to encourage other persons in corporate Barbados to enter a team next year or make a donation.”
