Major sponsors Vodafone Fiji, together with Tavua Town Council, aim to get more retail businesses involved in the Vodafone Gold and Water Carnival.

Vodafone Fiji has and will continue to support and financially boost the events, activities and sports in our communities to guide our objective of positive societal footprints.

During the opening of the fiesta last Wednesday, Vodafone Fiji sponsorship manager Adriu Vakarau said: “We aim to get more retail businesses involved for this year’s carnival.

“We are positive that we will be able to raise more funds this year towards the charity chest. We are glad to put in our share towards the people of the vanua and the committee is able to support and benefit the Tavua populous.”

He also said Vodafone Fiji was proud to set a platform to share our Fijian Spirit of togetherness in the 2016 Vodafone Gold and Water Carnival.

“We have been sponsoring the carnival since 2009, which has become the pride of our gold town and a landmark event for the people of Tavua and neighbouring villages.

“Today we stand strong as a nation working our way in overcoming the losses caused by the cyclone earlier this year. This very essence of togetherness has kept us all going during the tough times we experienced in the wrath of Cyclone Winston,” he said.

“We are proud to continue to boost the carnival in extending our commitment to support the efforts of Tavua Town Council in assisting the communities in and around the district of Tavua through the charity chest. Last year’s funds were mainly donated towards the maintenance of the Tavua Hospital and we hope to reap the same benefits from this year’s carnival for the maintenance of the township.”

He said the four-day carnival also provides a great platform for businesses and communities to get together. It also provides a platform for confident young women to communicate on the issues important to them.

“I am humbled to part of the opening ceremony of the 2016 Vodafone Gold and Water Carnival and extend the invitation to the people of Tavua to turn out in numbers to support and enjoy the carnival.

The carnival queen contestants will be advocating on the theme: “Shelter for the Poor”.
