THE general manager and publisher of Fiji Times Ltd, Hank Arts, thanked all loyal readers, customers and suppliers of The Fiji Times in raising $30,000 for their Hibiscus Festival charity chest.

Mr Arts said the money would go a long way in assisting the education of needy children.

Miss Fiji Times Charlene Lanyon's choice of charity was the Foundation of the Education of Needy Children (FENC) Fiji.

Mr Arts commended Ms Lanyon and fellow The Fiji Times journalist and Miss Dove Alisi Vucago for their effort and hard work throughout the week-long festival.

"A very big vinaka vakalevu to all our loyal readers, customers and suppliers for all your support during the Hibiscus Festival. It was a challenging ride, busy but fun," he said.

"To the staff of the Fiji Times, thank you for so enthusiastically supporting the queens, and of course the final result of raising $30,000 towards the chosen charity of FENC Fiji.

"It will make a difference to young lives and this was the driving force behind the Hibiscus project."

Mr Arts also thanked the company owners and its directors for their generosity in allowing them to give to charity.

"And last but not least congratulation to the organisers for a job well done," he added.

Miss Fiji Times was the third runner-up and was also awarded the Best Research Topic and Miss People's Choice while Miss Dove was awarded the Best Sarong wear.
