Hasim Khan, a renowned businessman in Seaqaqa, felt so blessed after hosting the Vodafone Fijian 7s squad members at his home during the team’s Northern tour last week.

Khan has been running the Seaqaqa Shopping Centre for over 20 years and is keen supporter of the community sporting activities. He is also willing to help the small town in sponsoring its sports events soccer, rugby or netball.

Las Friday was a different feeling for Khan as he was asked to help in hosting the World Champions.

“Thank you very much Vodafone Fiji for bringing the Vodafone Fijian team to Seaqaqa.

“This experience will be with us for the rest of our lives. We met our national heros in person and it’s my pleasure hosting them here at my Shop,” Khan said.

Vodafone Fiji chief executive officer Pradeep Lal said the programme was part of their plans taking the national heroes to communities.

“This is part of a new programme by Vodafone that we will take our sporting hero’s to the communities which may not have the opportunity to meet them.

“We are proud to be associated with this initiative as it benefits the community directly. Vodafone also thanks Mr. Khan for hosting the players,” Lal said.

Khan and his staff waited for the players at his supermarket and greeting the players with cheers of joy. He also made a surprising presentation to the team when he presented certificates of appreciation and each players getting a medal labelled “in recognition of outstanding contribution, exceptional dedication, strong commitment and stunning performance for our nation.”

Meanwhile the 12-member Vodafone Fijian 7s team will be named today.
