Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation president Sandeep Chauhan said the donation was a token of appreciation for the performance of the players during the World Sevens Series.

“The boys are doing a very wonderful job despite not winning the World Sevens Series title,” Chauhan said

“Not only the companies but individuals donated and we raise $77,000 in a few minutes.

“Our members wish that this money goes to the players as we did this for them.

“All Fijians should rally behind the team once again as they have played well and good role models to the young generation.”

Fiji Airways Fijian 7s coach Gareth Baber thanked the business community for their contribution.

“We are so grateful for the generous support,”Baber said
