The St. Christopher National Trust is appreciative of your continued loyalty and unwavering support of the work that we do. We are grateful for the many opportunities that we were able to serve you over the years while we work to ensure that our history and heritage remains protected and preserved for future generations.
Last year (2020) was a very difficult and trying year for all of us but through the challenges we have persevered. Even with a locked down economy and little to no income being realized, the Trust was able to accomplish several major projects and retain all of our staff. This could not have been possible without the support of the Government and many thoughtful and caring individuals and companies. Here are some of the what we have been able to accomplish in 2020:
Our Special Exhibitions – in 2020 we mounted two major exhibitions: “Sir Kennedy Simmonds…A National Hero” and “Christena Disaster… 50 Years Later”. These two exhibitions are not only major accomplishments, but addedfeatures to the National Museum as they were mounted during a time when resources were scarce. The Trust expended approximately $22,000 EC to mount these exhibits and, we continue to welcome donations towards defraying these costs. Both exhibitions are located in a special room within the National Museum and will remain open for viewing indefinitely.
Heritage House Story Telling Series– despite COVID19, we were able to present our 4th annual Dasani-Harpers Heritage House Storytelling series. This year we accommodated a limited number of children in the Museum however, thanks to the generosity of ZIZ Broadcasting Corporation, we were able to carry each session live for all children to have the opportunity to hear the stories and learn our history. The Eight-week sessions continued to be sponsored by Dasani Water and Harpers Office Depot with support from members and individuals who make it possible each year for the Children to come free. For this year’s outdoor activity, children were taken on a historic train tour around Basseterre sponsored in part by Sugar City Train.
Online Presence – through a grant from the International National Trust Organization (INTO) the Trust has began the process of digitizing its Documentation and Research Centre and adding an online store feature to our Website. Members will soon be able to access certain documents online as well as conduct business with the Trust including, renewing their membership or making donations. Members can renew their annual membership by visiting our Giftshop in the Museum Building, mailing your payment to P O Box 888, Basseterre or paying online at Membership – St. Christopher National Trust.
As you go through the process of budgeting and making your new-year resolutions, we ask that you remember the National Trust during this process. A donation of any amount would go a long way in making sure that we can continue to operate efficiently in 2021.
