THE Labasa branch of the Red Cross spent a total of $1535.65 in expenses last year as part of its operations cost.

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."

Mr Shawcross said their net surplus and deficit totalled $1870.35.

Branch members selected Jone Taufa as their new president, who said he was ready to serve and train volunteers under his leadership.

He also urged the volunteers to make a stand this year and be the change their in their communities.
