Bumble Bee Seafoods in partnership with Kombat Sportswear Supporting Grassroots Programme provided $2,000 worth of sponsorship to the Ovalau Rugby Union.

Programme coordinator/spon­sorship manager Malakai Yamai­vava said the Under-19 team and women’s team got training vests.

Yamaivava said the sponsorship was provided to assist their par­ticipations in the Vodafone Vanua Championship.

“We believe that through our lit­tle support it will help players showcase their talents and skills in rugby,” Yamaivava said.

He said Bumble Bee Seafoods was introduced to Fiji as a strategic lo­cation to process Albacore Tuna in 1999.

“This long-standing arrangement which was recently renewed for a further 10 years, has proved hugely beneficial to both Bumble Bee and Fiji over the period,” he said.

“Through our social responsibil­ity programmes, which include Day Care Centre, a school for the disabled, health initiatives and sporting activities, Bumble Bee seized the opportunity in reaching a broad spectrum of youths across Fiji through the Kombat Sports­wear Supporting Grassroots Pro­gramme.”

“We have facilitated the supply of kit, training aids and tourna­ment events across Fiji, reaching great numbers of participants and supporters of Fiji’s beloved game, rugby,” he said.

“We are proud to be a supporter of this initiative and have the op­portunity to give back to the com­munities.

“We wish the Ovalau rugby team the very best in the Vodafone Va­nua Championship 2020 and hope they qualify in the Skipper Cup Premiership in 2021.”
