THE Hilton Organisation has received much-needed assistance of $5000 from the Fiji Fuel Retailers Association.

Hilton Special School headteacher Merelesita Qeleni said the assistance would go towards fuel for its two buses.

"We are very grateful and happy that the association thought of us," Mrs Qeleni said.

"This assistance will help us with fuel for our two school buses for two to three months."

The Hilton Organisation transports up to 68 children with special needs daily from Lami, Suva, Nausori and Korovou to the school and back, covering about 130 kilometres per day.

Fiji Fuel Retailers Association president Naseer Khan said the assistance was for a worthy cause to an organisation that made a significant contribution to children with special needs.

"We decided to support the organisation's transport costs because we are in the transport business," Mr Khan said.
