The Royal British Legion Fiji branch received a boost ahead of a golf tournament scheduled for November with a $3,000 sponsorship from BSP Life.
Major Jim Hall and Ratu Meli Vesikula said the tournament was organised to help raise funds for families of former British Army soldiers who are facing financial difficulties.
“This tournament is to raise funds which would go directly to help soldiers who are coming back and those whose families are already here with their children and are faced with financial difficulties,” Vesikula said.
BSP Life general manager sales and distribution Michael Nacola said they have had a long relationship with British Army and they were proud of the relationship. In addition, this relationship was a reason the insurance arm of Bank South Pacific gave the donation for the worthy cause.
“We have customers in the Fijian community of the British Army and this is one prime reason we have done this as we want this relationship to grow.
“We acknowledge the important contribution they have done in sending remittances back home which also helps in the growth of our economy,” Nacola said.
The event would be an inaugural one to be held every November to mark Remembrance day
BSP Life will also carry out an auction and they are still looking for as many donations as possible for prizes.
Members of the public willing to help can contact the BSP Life branch at Dominion Arcade, Suva.
