Friday,  November 27, 2009  Communities on the island, particularly those situated in the  south, are to benefit from Saint Lucia’s first mobile counselling coach.  A fund raising concert to acquire the fully equipped vehicle is scheduled for December 5, at the Gaiety on Rodney Bay.


The concert is being spearheaded by the Rotary Calabashers Performing Group. Chairman of the group Mr. Malcolm Charles says the mobile counselling coach is one of several initiatives by the Rotary Club of Saint Lucia to give back to the community.


Several years ago the Club introduced the mobile blood bank.


“It is felt that if we create a counselling clinic, in other words a mobile clinic, an advisory service on wheels,  to do with career counselling, small business development reproductive health and general counselling, we could go around the island where young men and women are hanging out and provide free advise on their future,” Charles said.


He says once acquired, the mobile counselling unit will be handed over to the government of Saint Lucia. 


Meantime, the concert  will feature a thirty year journey of music to coincide with Saint Lucia's commemoration of  thirty years of independence.


“We start from pre-independence, so all music we played before independence, the songs our parents sang or we sang. Then we go on to the independence era and then we will be doing the various songs which came to our shores from around the world. Afterwards, we move to the cultural performances segment.”


Charles anticipates that many Saint Lucians will turn out to enjoy the show while contributing to a worthy venture.
