The Social Development Department is partnering with local family owned business, LSL Bakery to produce blue cupcakes every Friday in April in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month. This year’s theme is ‘Every Child Matters’. The colour blue symbolizes child abuse prevention and awareness and its customary that all paraphernalia and tools contain the colour.

Pictured is Baker and Manager of LSL Bakery, Ms. Lestene Maduro with curated cupcakes that will be available at bakeries on Tortola and Virgin Gorda. For orders or more information on how to purchase the cupcakes, telephone 340-5151. A portion of proceeds will be donated to families in need.(Photo Credit: Franklyn Skerritt/GIS)
