The Management and staff of Swire Shipping Fiji, their families and members of the Swire Shipping Fiji Warriors team gathered at My Suva Park in Nasese on Saturday morning for their first community work for this year.

Swire Shipping Human Resource Manager Ashika Chand said the community engagement was part of Swire Shipping’s plan to devel­op a spirit of common interest and sacrifice within their staff.

“The community engagement we are carrying out today is part of the first of four that has been planned for the year,” Ms Chand said.

“We aim to create a team bonding spirit within our staff where they participate collectively in commu­nity work,” she said.

“In this community work we are collecting rubbish from My Suva Park till the end of the Nasese fore­shore.

“We intend to motivate people to look after our available resources for our future generation.”

Sixty-five staff members were in attendance with their families and five members of the Swire Ship­ping Fiji Warriors team.

“We gathered at 6.30am at My Suva Park and started the day with prayer, safety briefing, rubbish col­lection material was distributed to teams and we started collecting rubbish from My Suva Park till end of Nasese foreshore.

“We finished at 8.30am and all had a healthy breakfast, various sand­wiches, fruits and tropical fruit juice.

“Kids played in the park while staff and their spouses played vol­leyball.

“We have started with the en­vironment clean up then we will move to schools, hospitals and old age homes.

“Our team at Swire Shipping is al­ways willingly going an extra mile to give back to the community and we strongly believe that together we can achieve more.

Swire Shipping Regional Man­ager – Pacific Islands Chris De Vil­liers said it was a great effort by everyone as it was a great chance of bonding as a team.
