The Lautoka Ratu Kadavulevu Old Boys Association donated $600 to the Western Cancer Support Group members at the Waterfront Hotel on Tuesday.

Chairperson for the Western Cancer Support Group Balavu Tora commended the association members for their efforts.

“I thank the members of the group for supporting the Pinktober awareness and thank them for their initiative,” Ms Tora said.

Ms Tora said that this was the first time the RKS Old Boys Association has contributed towards the Pinktober and they have pledged their full support towards the Pinktober month in the coming years.

President for RKS Old Boys Lautoka Branch Inoke Vosailagi said that they were happy to be able to contribute to such a worthy cause.

“We started advocating for breast cancer when we lost one of our member’s mother lately,” Mr Vosailagi said.

“She was diagnosed with cancer when she was on her late stages therefore we have decided that we needed to raise some money during our soli for this cause,” he said.

He said that cancer awareness was very important as early detection could save someone’s life.

Mr Vosailagi confirmed that the former scholars of Delainakaikai have marked fundraising for Pinktober in October as their yearly event.
