Legendary Knights the celebrity charity dinner and auction held on October 13 by the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Sir Vivian Richards and the Lord’s Taverners, as part of the Lord’s Taverners 65th Anniversary tour raised US$11,320.

The funds raised were split equally between Sir Vivian Richards’ charity of choice, the St. John’s Anglican Cathedral  for continuation of restoration work, on the cathedral, and the Friends of the Care Project, Sugar Ridge’s charity of choice.  Sugar Ridge, was the exclusive hotel partner for the touring Lord’s Taverners.

Donation presentations to the charities were held today at the St. John’s Anglican Cathedral and Sugar Ridge. Presentations were made to the Dean, The Very Reverend Rudolph Smithen and Mr. Grantley Samuels - Treasurer to the Vestry at the St. John’s Anglican Cathedral.  A presentation was also made to Jo Ann Reddick, board member of Friends of the Care Project at Sugar Ridge. In attendance at the presentations were: Duncan Lewis, Head of
