They prepare hot meals in their own home, and have continued to deliver these meals throughout the pandemic, providing vital support to those living in the shelter.

Craig Fulton, Chargé d’Affaires, British High Commission in Barbados, said:

“To prepare and supply meals for 30 homeless men every week for over fourteen years, especially throughout the COVID pandemic, is an extraordinary feat of generosity. I salute Trevor and Pamela for their outstanding contribution to those in need in Barbados.”

Trevor and Pamela Headley said:

“We are humbled to receive this award for our work with the Sir Clyde Gollop Shelter here in Barbados. For us, creating access to nutritious meals is more than meeting a basic human need, but creating a sense of community. The men at the shelter are a great part of our lives and supporting them is both a pleasure and a blessing! Thanks to our family and friends who over the past 14 years have supported our efforts, emphasizing the power of working together to create a positive difference.”

The daily Points of Light award recognises outstanding individual volunteers - people who are making a change in their community.
