Bond to the rescue

JAMES Bond fans will get a chance to watch the latest spy flick in style and raise funds for a worthy cause courtesy of the Rotary Club of Nadi.

A wine and cheese event will be held at Village 4 Cinemas in Lautoka tomorrow at 7.30pm to assist development at Buruwa Youth Memorial School in the interior of Nadi.

Nadi Rotary Club president Krupesh Patel said the fundraiser came in the wake of a visit to the rural learning centre.

"The school, which is situated close to an hour's drive from the Nawaicoba Rd junction, is virtually home to students from distant communities. Because of the vast distances from the school, children from Class One are boarding there. During our visit we noticed that there were only toilet facilities for girls and nothing for the boys' hostel. That's when the idea to hold this fundraiser came about," he said.

"The choice of the latest James Bond movie, Skyfall, came about because Bond movies are always something that people look forward to. Ticket sales at $25 per head are proceeding well and we hope to raise just over $2000 from this event," he added.

Mr Patel said the total cost of the sanitary block at the school had been pegged at $40,000 and more fundraisers would be held in the future towards the project.
