Lelean receives computer

IN return for being a loyal customer, RB Patel contributed a computer set complete with a two-in-one scanner and printer to Lelean Memorial School at Davuilevu yesterday.

School principal Aisea Rarokoliwa said the gift was a timely boost considering the school year had just begun.

"With the large population of students that we have, we managed to collect about $110,000 worth of shopping vouchers from RB Patel and for that, we were rewarded with this set," Mr Rarokoliwa said.

He said so far, $60,000 worth of vouchers had been collected while another $10,000 worth was left for another computer set.

"With the school roll at 1300 students, we will be able to get a lot more computers from RB Patel if we work hard on this assignment," he said.

He said they did not have enough computers for the school and the computer drive was much easy to organise than a walk-a-thon.

RB Patel Group Limited operational manager Joeli Tukana said the contribution was part of the company's corporate social responsibility and effort to support education in the community. He said they had given about 30 computers to participating schools.
