Fund-raising Christmas Lunch

Last Sunday saw another successful GPI fund-raising lunch.  At least 100 guests gathered to catch up on each other's news and to tuck into salt-fish and akee, jerk chicken and lots more from Geoffrey's list of delicious Caribbean dishes. 

This year, to keep us warm, we were also treated to some of Alexander the Great's fine calypso songs. Upstairs and down in the bookshop, you could hear tapping feet and voices joining in the chorus.
