Shop N Save Supermarket renewed their partnership with Athletics Fiji with a sponsorship of $65,000 yesterday.

Athletics Fiji president Joe Rodan Senior said financial support was what drove development while at the same time getting more people involved with the sport.

“Athletics Fiji has a four-year plan and this plan is workable if we have proper finance and we are very fortunate that Shop N Save Supermarket is renewing its contract with us,” Rodan said.

“The big event now is the Rio Olympics in August and we have been giving our athletes the best chances of qualifying for the Olympics by sending them overseas to compete and meet the required times.

“I want to thank Shop N Save for coming on board and for establishing this wonderful relationship.”

Shop N Save Supermarket director Nisheel Deo said they were happy to carry out their social responsibility in giving back to the community.

“Shop N Save Supermarket is one of Fiji’s largest and growing supermarkets with its presence in almost every corner in Fiji,” Deo said.

“This has enabled us to fulfil our social and corporate responsibility and continuously give back to better our community.

“We have always regarded sports as the perfect platform to play our part in encouraging all Fijians to maintain a healthy and a good lifestyle.

“We hope to continue our support and development of our talented athletes across Fiji.”
