A GOOD Samaritan from Australia gave eight sets of jerseys to the Rockets volleyball club from Kinoya.

The club, which plays in the University of the South Pacific Islanders Volleyball Association (USPIVA) competition, was struggling to buy the proper uniforms and sees this assistance as a timely one.

Club official Viniana Seru said they required proper uniforms to play in the weekly games because USPIVA was following international rules in its competition.

The club has 35 members most of who are still in either high schools or tertiary institution.

"The rest are unemployed youths living in Kinoya.

"This club is formed to keep unemployed youths away from criminal activities," Seru said.

"We are thankful to the person, who wished not to be named, for this generous contribution."

Seru also thanked the community members for their contribution in building the team.

She said the Kinoya Police Station officers were also pleased with their effort to minimise the crime rate in the area.
