THE Port Moresby Fiss-Potts Rugby Club hosted their fifth annual rugby 10s charity tournament at the Sir John Guise Stadium on Saturday.
Ten teams took part in the day-long tournament which ended with a cheque presentation of K15,000 to the Links of Hope PNG orphanage.
Club president Jack Kariko acknowledged the teams for their support in helping to raise funds.
“This is a charity tournament where the registration fees collected from the teams go a long way in supporting a charity or a cause that the club see that doesn’t receive much attention in the community,” he said. “This tournament is one of a few activities that we’ve run this year and we really appreciate the effort put in by all the teams.”
Seruma Numa, a volunteer with the Links of Hopes, thanked the club for their support in helping disadvantaged children whose lives have been affected by HIV/AIDS.
“Fiss Potts have been supporting us since last year and they’ve done it again this year,” she said. “We really appreciate the donation. It’s going to go a long way in supporting our programmes for children who are impacted by HIV/AIDS.”
She said the money would also be used to help improve access to health and education for the children. The donation is part of the club’s goal in supporting and creating awareness for organisations that help communities.
