FRCS hosts Bushells biggest morning tea

25th September, 2017

The Fiji Revenue and Customs Service (FRCS) on behalf of the Fiji Cancer Society hosted the Bushells biggest morning tea last week.

“One of our values is One Organisation and I am thrilled to see the whole organization coming together as one in supporting the fight against cancer with the Fiji Cancer Society,” FRCS Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Visvanath Das said during his opening address at the event.

“We administer and carry out functions for the government and raise funds for the provision of public goods and services. For a change, the organization joined hands to raise funds for a noble cause,” Mr. Das said.

With the 2017 slogan ‘No one fights alone’, the Service joined in the fight against Cancer by donating $2126.00 to the Fiji Cancer Society.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the social club for organising this event. As an organisation, it is important that we support,” Mr. Das said.

The FRCS staff at the event had a chance to listen to the story of one of the Cancer survivors, the Vude Queen and Fijian singer, Ms. Laisa Vulakoro.

“Thank you for supporting the Fiji Cancer Society. Thank you for supporting people with cancer and those who need treatment. Your donation will go a long way in making a difference in somebody’s life,” Ms. Vulakoro said.

Society Communications Officer, Mr. Kaliova Kadomavatu expressed similar sentiments.

“On behalf of the society, trustees and the board members as well as the CEO, we want to thank FRCS in saying yes to hosting one of our iconic events, so from our hearts to yours. Vinaka vakalevu. Thank you for your generous support,” he said.

“Bushells Fiji’s biggest morning tea is a wonderful way to not only raise funds but to create awareness of the support to the overall cause. It is also a great chance for people to come together and chat about a topic that can be so difficult to discuss because it’s very personal

and because of the country that we live in, the pacific region, all the traditional taboos and the culture that we come from, sometimes it is very difficult to discuss topics such as this,” he added.
