This was revealed in the society's financial report submitted at the branch's AGM in Labasa over the weekend by the North development co-ordinator Michael Shawcross.

Mr Shawcross also revealed at the AGM that the branch managed to generate income of $3396.50.

"The branch had started off the year 2013 with a bank balance of $8.50," he said.

"Last year, we received donations of $251.50 with fundraising raking in a total of $1714.20.

"We also received a reimbursement of $501.05 from the national office and collected a total of $929.75 from standby fees."
