‘Rise up Bequia’ provided substantial support to the Red Cross during the December floods of 2013.

“Last year we have provided support to 140 school children affected by the floods of 2013, painted and cleaned the Bequia Library and provided gift vouchers, valued $100 each, to 33 children still reeling from the December floods.

Admission costs — adults $20, children 12 yrs and under $10. Show will begin at 8 p.m. With the support of the general public Rise Up Bequia can continue its outreach.

Rise Up Bequia is an independent non-profit activist initiative, working for the public interest of the citizens of Bequia. They are a social activist group focusing on building and strengthening core ideas and practices of sustainable community development, education, agency and outreach.
