R.C. Manubhai has stepped up to sponsor the Rakiraki Football Association for the 2016 Courts Inter District Championship. Company product manager Shanil Patel believes the $2000 sponsorship is all for a worthy cause.

In handing over the cheque at their Raiwaqa branch store yesterday, Patel says, the sponsorship was made to help rebuild Rakiraki Football after the devastation caused by Cyclone Winston.

“RC Manubhai is very proud to sponsor the association,” he said.

“It was very much-needed after Cyclone Winston struck earlier this year. For a small club this could be difficult if they don’t have enough revenue coming in. We wanted to be a point of revenue for them, to rebuild and start moving forward and it’s good to see that they are taking part in the IDC. Hopefully the donation will help them towards the future and to rebuild the facilities they need and provide the much-needed equipment.”

Rakiraki Football president, Shaneel Gounder, thanked their sponsor for the timely boost.

“It was very hard to get a sponsor and this is a timely one for Rakiraki especially to come and participate in the IDC in Suva,” he said.

The R.C. Manubhai Rakiraki side take on Vatukoula at 11am today at Bidesi Park.
