Warriors game on Saturday to raise funds for Cyclone Gita recovery

The Vodafone Warriors will raise money for the Pacific Disaster Fund at Saturday night’s game at Mt Smart Stadium.

A $15 ticket is on sale for the first home game of the 2018 NRL season against Gold Coast. Kick off is at 5pm.

The Warriors will donate $5 from every ticket sold to the Pacific Disaster Fund in support of the Cyclone Gita recovery.

They will also work with the Red Cross by holding a bucket collection at the club’s first NRL trial against Melbourne at Rotorua International Stadium on Saturday at 3pm.

“We are a club with strong Pacific links and we want to do what we can to help the island nations,” Vodafone Warriors CEO Cameron George said.

The tickets for the Gold Coast game are available on pre-sale only. The offer expires at 11.59pm on March 16.

The pre-sale for Vodafone Warriors members ends at midday on February 16.

The $15 ticket offer for the Vodafone Warriors v Gold Coast match on March 17 will be available through www.ticketek.co.nz.

The tickets will be available in all areas except the platinum covered and platinum uncovered bays.

You can also make a $3 donation by texting  Red Cross 4644.

As Kaniva News reported earlier, international donors have given TP$52.6 million to Tonga to help the recovery process after Cyclone Gita.

The National Emergency Management Office said Cabinet had allocated $TP21.4 for the Cyclone sub-committee to help the recovery process.

The money would be spent on specific areas including shelter, education, food and security, and communication.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
