The University of the South Pacific’s (USP) Lautoka Campus collaborated with the Fiji Cancer Society to host Pinktober Morning Tea at the Campus venue on 19 October 2016.

The fundraising event was attended by invited guests from Lautoka’s corporate and business sector together with staff and students of the Campus. Flour Mills of Fiji also came on board as one of the major sponsors for the worthy course.

Lautoka Campus Director, Dr Pramila Devi commended the audience for a positive turnout at the event, and conveyed the Campus’ support and encouragement towards the Fiji Cancer Society.

The event also saw the presence of three cancer survivors as guest speakers. The three women survivors were Mrs Sue Daurewa, Mrs Pat Bennion and Mrs Dorothy Mataka. The survivors shared brief anecdotes of their struggles and triumphs in their fight against cancer.

While each had their own story, the commonality was the strength derived from family support together with the individual’s personal determination.

Lautoka Coordinator of Fiji Cancer Society, Ms Balava Tora expressed her gratitude to the spirit of commitment shown by everyone as part of the event.

She further shared her challenges and turmoil faced in the fight against cancer.

The ambience at the event radiated of Pink generosity and a total of FJ$383.00 was collected.

Other sponsors included Chandu’s Restaurant, Janice Hanfakaga, Bargin Box, cash donation from Rams Cleaning Services and well-wishers of USP Lautoka Campus
