A TOTAL of $1200 is up for grabs at the two-day Macuata Division Methodist Sevens tournament in Labasa.
And 22 teams from the three provinces of Cakaudrove, Bua and Macuata are playing their hearts out to walk away with the prizemoney.
Organiser Reverend Waisele Vuli said the tournament was aimed at raising funds for the upgrading of the Nasoso Methodist Lay Training Centre in Naduri.
"We are hosting some fine young teams who have prepared well for this tournament," he said.
"The winner walks away with $1200 while the runner-up will take home $500. The other winners will also be awarded with prizes.
"We are aiming to raise $5000 from this tournament and the money will be used to upgrade the centre. Part of the money will also be used to purchase stationery for the students."
Vuli said the response from the public had been overwhelming.
"The support is tremendous and in the first day, about 1000 people turned up. We would like to thank Digicel and BSP for their sponsorship."
