Skelding said: “The Caribbean is such a special place for so many of us at The Brighter Group and an area of real expertise – we care passionately about the islands and the people who rely on tourism to make a living.
“The pandemic has been particularly brutal in the travel industry and we want to make sure that we are doing our bit to help inspire people to return to the Caribbean when lockdown lifts which is why we are delighted to offer our digital expertise on a pro bono basis.
“We want to do what is right for our tourism family in these trying times and help where we can. It is part of our FINN Partners manifesto to ‘make a difference in the world’ and part of our ethos it to collaborate where we can which is why we are delighted to be working with the CTO UK, its members and new PR team to amplify all the excellent stories coming from the Caribbean.’
