NOTICE
from the
Broadway to Barbados Charitable Trust

The Broadway to Barbados Charitable Trust (BBCT) regrets to advise that it has found it necessary to suspend the holding of the Broadway to Barbados Show for 2018.

For the past five (5) years the Broadway Show, which has served as the centerpiece of our fundraising activities in support of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH), has been held annually at the Frank Collymore Hall.

In 2016, we received a VAT exemption in writing for 2017 from the Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA) upon the understanding that all contributions by BBCT would go to the QEH. A similar request to BRA for the 2018 Show was made but to date, no written reply has been received.

In addition, while attempting to reserve dates at the Frank Collymore Hall for the 2018 Broadway Show, we were informed that they could not reserve any dates unless the VAT request was approved in writing, by the Ministry of Finance. To date, such confirmation has not been received.

Regrettably, BBCT is therefore unable at this late stage to arrange for a 2018 Broadway Show even if the VAT issue is now resolved. The producer of the Broadway Show, Mr. Neil Berg, has however committed to the 2019 Show with an exciting new production and we eagerly anticipate a firm resolution to the outstanding impediment.

During 2018, we expect to continue with further commitments for the QEH, in association with Partners and develop programs in support of our “Supply Pack Program” which provides critical care supplies for the benefit of caregivers and patients. Additionally, we shall seek to identify new projects which will supplement our efforts to improve critical care at the QEH. As of this date, BBCT has raised $2,859,649 and made commitments to the QEH of $2,016,141 in relation to new equipment and maintenance support, training programs and supplies in association with its Partners and Supporters.

Sincerely,

Trustees of the
Broadway to Barbados Charitable Trust
