KANA Construction continued its good community obligation by giving K50,000 to support new franchise, Hela Wigmen in the Digicel Cup this year honouring a pledge the company made earlier in the year.
Only established in the nation’s capital for three years, the nationally-owned company has grown from strength to strength helping various sporting organisations in the country.
Managing director Roxon Undi from Karanas village in Ialibu, Southern Highlands, when handing the cheque to the Wigmen said the company continue its sponsorship in the future.
“Kana construction is happy to jump on board and fulfill the commitment we made to the Wigmen earlier and as always, we have to support our country men in things like this,” Undi said.
The company has its branches in Tabubil, Lae and SHP.
The announcement is sure to lift Wigmen when they fly up to Lae to play the Snax Lae Tigers.
Wigmen’s chairman Gai Pobe thanked Undi and his company for supporting the franchise and took the chance to clear the air on their home ground situation.
He said the Wigmen would still play their home games in Port Moresby while work was carried out back in Tari for the new venue.
Pobe said media reports on the issue of the new franchise was misleading as talks were now in progress with PNGNRL to see them return to PRL.
