Contestant raises funds

VODAFONE Fiji Hibiscus queen contestant Miss Carpenters Fiji, Neetika Sahai yesterday morning hosted her first charity drive at the My Suva Picnic Park in Nasese.

The drive, which hosted large crowds of people to a morning of beach and waterfront clean-ups, allowed the contestant the opportunity to raise funds to be given towards charity, post-Hibiscus.

Ms Sahai said the turnout was encouraging and the support she received from fellow contestants, colleagues, family members and friends at the work-a-thon was overwhelming.

"I was so happy with the turnout today (yesterday), especially because my family travelled from Navua to be here with me and fellow queen and king contestants also made the effort to come and support me.

"The work-a-thon was a clean-up of the foreshore here and it took place really early, starting around 7.45am and finishing at about 9.30am."

She said prior to the clean-up, forms were handed out to members of the public and corporate bodies which asked people to pledge a certain amount of money towards the event.
