The Fiji Sugar Corporation donated a total of $3706.20 to the Fiji Cancer Society in support of Pinktober, assisting women battling cancer.

FSC chief executive officer, Graham Clark said FSC was grateful to working with the Fiji Cancer Society which had allowed the staff to grow closer towards the initiative carried out.

Mr Clark said the total fund that was collected came from a series of morning teas and other means of fundraising.

“FSC is very pleased and proud to be part of the work that you do and it is something that I think, we as a team, have drawn really close to what we do,” he said.

“We have had a series of morning teas in all the mills and having one here which has been very successful and we’ve got a wellness programme in FSC, a weight loss programme, a health check programme where people get scanned for diabetes and blood pressure and they raised a bit of money doing some walk around, it was successful.”

He said the team who were part of the fundraising, showed their commitment towards giving generously for the month of October.

“The team has done quite well and what we undertook as FSC is to match whatever they raised,” he said.

“The employees raised a total of $1853.20 which FSC has matched to give a total of $3706.20 which we happily donate to your work.”

“We from the Fiji Cancer Society is blessed that we have such organisations which come forward to be part of us, not only during the Pinktober months but throughout the year, it’s a good indication.”
