Rihanna is getting into the holiday spirit by donating $1.75 million dollars to a Barbados hospital in memory of her dear Gran Gran Dolly.
Rihanna broke the news of her grandmother Clara “Dolly” Braithwaite’s death back in June via Twitter: “Goodbye #grangranDOLLY get your beauty rest until I see you.”
The singer visited the hospital Saturday with her mother Monica Fenty and Dolly’s husband Lionel alongside her.
The 24-year-old’s generous donation, which led to the radiotherapy department at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown to be renamed the Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine, has paid for vital pieces of equipment.
In a statement to E! News, the singer said, “This was my way of giving back to Barbados, in a form of philanthropy, by assisting the QEH in its continued modernization program…I believe that this will have a huge impact on the people of Barbados. This was all done to save lives or at least extend them.”
Way to spread some holiday cheer Robyn, enjoy your family, friends, and Christmas “trees”.
