Groups get funds

Kapi-Mana News - - FAMILY/NEWS -

The votes have been counted and the cash has been gifted to four com­mu­nity groups from Z Mana. When the re­branded petrol sta­tion opened this month, it of­fered $5000 to com­mu­nity groups, ask­ing shop­pers to vote for their favoured cause. Round­ing up to the near­est $50, the money was di­vided and pre­sented last Fri­day to Bel­ly­ful ($1450), Mana Vol­un­teer Coast­guard ($1200), Mary Pot­ter Hospice ($1650), and Friends of Mana Is­land ($850). Z work­ers Raswinder Singh and Tar­min­dar Mann said it had been bril­liant stand­ing be­hind the counter to watch cus­tomers dis­cuss, pon­der and slot their chip in the vote box – of­ten re­turn­ing three or four times to give their sec­ond, third and fourth choice one also.
