Assistance for 150

Shayal Devi
Sunday, January 26, 2014

BOOKS, stationery, uniforms, bags and sandals were given to about 150 students in the Western Division by the Bayly Education Fund earlier this week.

Sarojini Michael, of the Bayly Welfare office in Lautoka, said their staff and a team of volunteers including former recipients of the Bayly Scholarship Fund had helped out in the distribution of books.

"The team served up to about 150 cases in the week leading up to the beginning of the school term," she said.

"Those seeking educational assistance came from places as far as Tavua, Ba, Nadi and Sigatoka. Although full support could not be granted, our organisation still managed to help these cases by way of donated items.

"The Bayly Welfare and its recipients are very grateful to the Bayly Trust in its assistance of educational needs for these students."
