Target excites church

THE Nasea Day celebration has been hailed a success with more than $20,000 raised at the two-day event in Labasa last week.

The event, to raise funds for church development projects, saw people from all walks of life supporting the worthy cause.

Nasea Methodist Church circuit minister Reverend Savirio Vuata said they were happy to have exceeded their target of $20,000 this year.

"Now, the construction of the circuit pastor's residence will be completed and other projects that have been put on hold because of financial constraints," Mr Vuata said.

"We aimed to raise about $20,000 and it's really good news for us that we have reaped the fruit of our struggles. The turnout from the public was tremendous and we managed to collect about $7,000 from the New World Supermarket Nasea Sevens tournament and the rest from contributions made by the four sectors."

Mr Vuata said other denominations were also invited to be part of the event.

"The event was not only for Methodists, it was for everyone and it was really good to see that people of different faiths came together as one," he said.

"Next year's celebration will be bigger and better as we work towards strengthening relationships among all races in the country." Mr Savirio was grateful to the sponsors and the public for their support.
