Vodafone Fiji Limited held a special lunch at the Uprising Beach Resort yesterday.

The occasion was to honour the Vodafone Fijian 7s reps and their families after a good start in the 2015-16 World Sevens Series.

Vodafone Fiji sponsorship manager Adriu Vakarau said it was their way of showing the players that they care.

“We are thankful that everyone was represented, “he said.

“For those who are married they bought their wives and children and those who aren’t brought their girlfriends and parents.

“It shows us that they value our relationship and we want to show them that we are not only here as sponsors but to ensure that their families are happy as well.

“This lunch is a thank you to the players for past two legs and we also wanted the players to bring their families to show them where their sons, husbands and boyfriends train.

“It has been a wonderful turnout and it was really good seeing the families of the players together.”

There was an exchange of presents as Vodafone gifted the parents, wives and girlfriends with Christmas hampers while the players got a smart phone each.

Meanwhile, Vodafone Fijian 7s captain Osea Kolinisau thanked Vodafone for the lunch as the players are on taboo and not allowed to drink alcohol or kava.

“Big thanks to Vodafone; this is the first time this has ever happened to have a lunch and being presented with gifts.

“It’s a good initiative from Vodafone to show the support they have towards rugby and the players,” Kolinisau said. Edited by Osea Bola
