Going Places Travel, member company of Sun Group Inc., Barbados is giving back to the community of Barbuda with a donation of $10,000.

Going Places Travel continues to demonstrate its commitment to the people of Antigua and Barbuda, by assisting students who were evacuated to Antigua from the hurricane-ravaged island of Barbuda.

Here at Going Places Travel we are committed to supporting hurricane relief efforts in Caribbean territories. The fact that this donation will be focused on areas of education is not only in line with our existing corporate social responsibility efforts which seek to support education, but is also an integral part of supporting Barbuda students in achieving a sense of normalcy in their lives following the devastation caused by Irma."
