CONTESTANTS of the Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North brightened the faces of patients when they visited the Labasa Hospital yesterday.

The smiling contestants injected an atmosphere of excitement at the hospital as patients took time out to meet and greet them.

For recovering mother Adi Asenaca Sukuna, who gave birth to a healthy boy on Tuesday, she said meeting the contestants was something she did not expect.

Mrs Sukuna was happy and excited to meet the contestants.

She said she would return home to Galoa Island in Bua with fond memories knowing that her newborn baby had met the contestants.

Meanwhile, the contestants along with the festival executive committee members also gave a TV and refrigerator worth about $2000 to the hospital's dialysis centre.
