Nassau, Bahamas - Lady Ingrid Darling, wife of former Governor General the late Sir Clifford Darling today accepted an invitation by the Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre (SRC) to serve as Patron of the 2019 Sandilands Fair.

Personally accepting the invitation from  Hospital Administrator Mary Lightbourne-Walker, Lady Darling expressed delight about serving, “I am pleased to once again be a part of this worthy effort to stage the fair this year, raising funds for one of the most important institutions for the care of our country’s elderly and disabled citizens”. She warmly recalled the days when she served as patron with her husband Sir Clifford Darling, “My husband, served as Patron of the Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre for many years. He especially enjoyed touring the wards, sharing time with the patients and staff, sometimes entertaining them at our home, but most of all, he looked forward to participating in your annual activities including the Fair”.


Retired SRC employees including former Hospital Administrator Dorothy Hepburn, and Senior TCN Laural Butler have also signed-up to work on this year’s fair set for Saturday, 28th September 2019.  The last grand SRC Fair was held more than decade ago in 2007. The funds from this year’s fair will go towards creating the Geriatric Hospital Recreational Lawn Project, and the Therapeutic Gardening Project.

Lady Darling’s acceptance to serve as the Patron of the Renaissance Fair was also based, she said on her desire to play a role in reducing the stigma that looms over mental health issues in The Bahamas.
