The Miss Vodafone Savusavu Carnival committee collected $62,000 during the four-day event, says carnival committe chairman Vijay Chand.

Mr Chand, who is also the Special Administrator Sa­vusavu Town, paid tribute to the people of Savusavu for taking part in the festivi­ties.

“We would like to thank the people of Savusavu for their continuous support throughout the four-day event and we look forward to your support in years to come,” Mr Chand said.

The closing ceremony chief guest, Assistant Min­ister for Local Government, Housing and Environment Lorna Eden applauded the committee for choosing the theme ‘Go Green – Stop Global Warming’.

“As you are all aware our Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama recently returned from New York where he was co-chair of the World Ocean Confer­ence alongside Sweden,” she said.

“In November this year, our Prime Minister and Fiji will be the President of the Conference of Parties on Climate Change – COP23, which will be held in Ger­many.

“These are huge achieve­ments for Fiji, and we shall all be very proud to be Fi­jians now, more than ever before.”

More than 500 people turned up for the closing event at the Narain Grounds on Saturday night.
