Women Who Care are a group of like minded women who having made Antigua their home, wanted to give back and help those in need. Their objective to provide financial help to local people in their time of need. They do this by selling second hand books outside the Epicurean Supermarket in Jolly Harbour the first Saturday of every month.
Woman Who Care are Janda Spinks and Christine Williams from the UK and Hanna Pinsent from Canada. Janda and Christine live on the South of the island and Hanna spends 6 months of year here in Antigua. Having been in action for the last two years a number of worthy charities and individuals have benefitted from the ladies determination to help out. During the first year the monies raised was given solely to SANDS Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society and then donated to various charities and local causes. Others who have benefitted are the Salvation Army, the Youth Sailing Programme in Jolly Harbour who provide free sailing lessons to local children, families in Urlings and Johnsons Point whose houses burnt down, Tindale Seven Day Adventist Church Community Services, an employee of Epicurean with a brain tumour and the Mental Hospital.
Woman Who Care also provide a service to those people on the island who love to read and they get regular customers each month who not only buy the books but donate them as well.
Woman Who Care is very grateful to Epicurean who allow them to sell from their supermarket and also to their customers who faithfully come and purchase and donate the books.
They currently have a large selection of German books and Italian children’s books.
