MEMBERS of the Lovoni Titans Rugby League Club in Suva celebrated the Fiji Day holiday by participating in a clean-up campaign on Wednesday.

While the rest of the country enjoyed the day with various activities organised to celebrate the day, members of the Lovoni Titans team took time out to clean up parts of the area where they live.

The Lovoni Titans is a team made up of youths from Lovoni settlement in Samabula, Suva. Team official Walusio Ratulevu said they decided to help clean up parts of their settlement to get the boys engaged in something useful on that day.

Ratulevu said they also wanted to clean their settlement to assist the families of Indians of Fijian descent as they would be celebrating Diwali next month.

“This is the second clean-up campaign in our settlement this year and the boys have really enjoyed doing something useful,” Ratulevu said.

“While the boys are helping clean up our settlement it also gives them the opportunity to improve on their bonding and build on teamwork.

“They really enjoyed the day and have also managed to open up relationship with their neighbours.”

Ratulevu said they wanted to thank people and organisations that had assisted them in the two clean-up campaigns they had participated in this year.

“We would like to thank the Indian High Commission for giving us some money, the Suva City Council for the gloves and garbage bags and also the many individuals who have pitched in to help us get the work done,” he said.

“After seeing the success of the work we have done we have planned for more clean-up during the public holiday next month,” Ratulevu said.

“We are a new club in the Fiji National Rugby League competition as we joined this year but we have seen the potential these boys have and we want to see them develop into better rugby league players,” Ratulevu said.

“By participating in these type of work we will be able to get the boys focused on better things apart from just drinking alcohol and grog during the holidays and festive season.”
