More than 300 staff, families and friends of Westpac Fiji celebrated the festival of light in style on Friday.

Many dressed up for Diwali during their pre-Diwali celebrations at the Vodafone Arena in Suva.

Westpac Fiji general manager Brent Hooker’s wife, Rachelle Hooker said: “This is a celebration to bring the Westpac families together and enjoy the festival.

“I hope this year’s Diwali will bring joy and prosperity in everyone’s life,” she said.

Mr Hooker at an ealier Diwali celebration in the West said, this festival of light was the metaphor of knowledge, where decorated homes with lights symbolise destruction, of negative forces and true knowledge.

“Fiji is truly an example of how through knowledge and understanding, ignorance can be dispelled and multiple communities can come together and live together,” he said.
