Raiwaqa Raiders received a timely boost yesterday after getting a $6000 sponsorship from their naming rights sponsor Blue Gas yesterday.

The secretary for Raiwai Youth and Community Council, Joe Nasilasila, applauded the assistance.

“We are so delighted and excited we got the assistance by Blue Gas. We acknowledge the Blue Gas managing director Ajay Punja for helping with our preparations for going down to Lawaqa Park for the Vodafone 9s tomorrow (today).

“The first sponsorship was when they supported us with $250 for the third and final inter-lane tournament that we had last month.”

Nasilasila said the package also includes the naming rights to the Raiwai Community Centre.

“It’s going to upgraded and renovated soon with the help of Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.”

Punjas operating manager James Lee said they believed in working with the communities especially a place like Raiwai where a lot of people are involved in sports.

“We’re working with the Raiders management to make sure it goes a both ways where we help each other out, so that we can both grow together.”

The Raiwaqa Raiders will be competing in the Vodafone 9s Tournament at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka today.
