Carnival aims to raise $30k

THE Farmers Carnival committee hopes to raise $30,000 at the fete this year, says president Udit Narayan.

After naming the five contestants in Lautoka on Saturday, Mr Narayan said the carnival had no major sponsor this year.

"Our theme remains the same, to raise funds to help underprivileged children," he said.

"We don't have any major sponsor this year as none in the business community has come forward to support us.

"We have tried to get some sponsors but we have been unsuccessful."

"I don't know why business communities are reluctant to come forward to help."

He said farmers had contributed immensely towards the development of the country and people should be willing to help them.

"The main aim of this carnival is to help the underprivileged children, especially those children in rural areas."

He said preparations for the Farmers Carnival would begin a week before the event started.
