THE Leadership Fiji Alumni has given more than $600 worth of school supplies for students affected by Cyclone Evan in the west.

Comprising graduates of the Leadership Fiji program, the alumni presented the school supplies to The Fiji Times Limited last week.

Alumni president Praveen Maharaj said the alumni executive committee continued to organise opportunities for graduates to not only extend their learning from Leadership Fiji but also provided opportunities to be engaged in community work such as supporting the education of those less fortunate.

"The appeal organised by The Fiji Times and Williams and Gosling was also an opportunity for the Leadership Fiji Alumni to give back to two organisations that have been long time supporters of the Leadership Fiji program," he said.

While receiving the donation, The Fiji Times Limited general manager Hank Arts thanked the alumni for its generosity.

"The amount of gifts received over the past few months has been quite extraordinary," he said.

"The people of Fiji are most generous when it comes to issues like this.

"In particular, I thank those companies like Williams and Gosling and the Rotary Lautoka team that so generously gave their time to distribute the gifts for all their efforts."

The Leadership Fiji Alumni also acknowledged the support of the Reserve Bank, Westpac and the National Fire Authority's Suva Fire Station for their assistance.
