In March of this year cyclone Winston devastated the Northern islands of Fiji and you will recall that we decided to donate our returned rain jackets to the children of Taveuni in Fiji. Finn Gough also raised around $2,500 at his school, which they decided to put towards buying sporting equipment including rugby, netball, volley and soccer balls. 

Thanks to the Harlequin community and the children at St.Bernadette's School, West Ivanhoe.

Rosa, Ben, Jay and I had the pleasure of distributing these around the island to the worst affected schools and villages. I have attached a link to a 2 minute movie that summarizes the day we spent spent giving out the goods. For those who would like to hear some of the moving words of thanks from some of the school principals I have also attached a link to the album. of around 50 photos and video clips.
