Thanks to you, our guests, True Blue Bay Resort is able to give back to the Grenadian community. Owners Russ and Magdalena Fielden, have always been willing to help members of staff and the local community.
Russ is passionate about education, energy savings and getting things right, he teaches and helps as much as he can at Vendome Primary School, coaching many of the kids and bringing them to the resort when possible for meals and field trips, he also offers financial advice to all our staff and has set up a very successful savings fund with the money many of you so kindly contributed after Hurricane Ivan. He is in constant discussions with our Electricity Company Grenlec to find ways to save energy.
Many local events are also sponsored throughout the year: Grenada Triathlon, Grenada Sailing Festival, Drum Festival, schools events and community happenings.
Every year True Blue Bay Resort is happy to provide complimentary accommodation to the volunteers from the Children’s Health Organization Relief and Educational Services (CHORES). This is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian children’s health organization based in Jacksonville, Florida.
Founded in 1989, CHORES is comprised of pediatricians, pediatric surgeons, occupational and speech therapists, prosthetic specialists, and many other professionals, all willing to donate their time and expertise to assist with children’s health care in Grenada. The work they carry out here is invaluable and we feel privileged to be able to assist with their works. For further information on CHORES visit www.choresforthechildren.org.
Every summer in the quiet tourist months, True Blue Bay Resort invites the Queen Elizabeth Home to bring the children to the resort to play at the kids’ playground, swim in the pool and have lunch at the restaurant. Also, on Boxing Day, we invite the staff and kids to True Blue for a Christmas party when the kids have fun around the resort and then stuff themselves with turkey and ice cream.
Our guests often join in the fun and help with the entertainment of the kids. The Queen Elizabeth Home is a charity in Grenada which is located in Tempe just inland from St George’s. This valuable charity provides shelter and support for poor, orphaned or abused children, giving them access to schooling and further education to integrate them with the wider Grenadian community. Donations, books and school supplies are always appreciated by this organization.
As arts and crafts are Magdalena’s passion, twice a year she invites local crafters to participate in a Craft Fair. The Restaurant and Bar are converted into a market and up to 40 crafters and artisans come and display their merchandise. Every December the local community and tourists look forward to the Annual True Blue Christmas Bazaar, now running for 12 years and the Easter Bazaar in its 4th year.
Artisans are also encouraged to come and sell their goods on busy nights at the restaurant; guests are encouraged to support them, as they really need the business.
We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and bring supplies for area schools or medical clinics in need, you'll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
