It's the season of giving and Sagicor has gotten into the spirit by joining forces with one of Barbados' most recognised charities.

Dozens of less fortunate individuals and families will enjoy a much better holiday season thanks to efforts by Sagicor and the Lions Club of Barbados South’s annual hamper drive.
