Committee waits for funds

THE Duavata Northern Crime Prevention carnival committee expects to collect about $80,000 from this year's fete.

It is yet to receive other funds collected during the event.

Carnival committee chairman Satish Kumar said $79,000 had been received and more would be collected later. He said $6290 was raised by the queen contestants this year.

"The money left to be collected are those from stall operators and some companies and business houses that sponsored the carnival," Mr Kumar said.

"Funds collected during the event will be wholly diverted to community projects that have been earmarked by the committee. We are already working on a bus shelter at Navakasigani in Waiqele which is estimated at about $6000."

Mr Kumar said there were other projects the committee would develop to benefit rural communities in the North.
