THE 14th Rotary Golf Tournament 2014, an annual sporting event which ended yesterday at Royal Brunei Golf Club in Berakas, has raised more than BND22,000, as announced by the Rotary Club BSB past president Ricky Ng.
In his speech, Ricky Ng, on behalf of the club’s President Kenneth Ling, expressed his appreciation and thanks to all golfers for playing in the tournament.
“Year after year we have received your unconditional support and contributions. We deeply appreciate them,” he said, adding that their kind gestures had helped make a difference in the lives of these students.
The club supports some 20 needy students each year with the objective of helping them to complete their education from primary to secondary and even until tertiary level.
“With the funds, we are also helping rural students to have a good start by providing them with basic essentials and school projects. This year, we plan to assist as many as 250 students through this initiative,” he said.
“Over the past 14 years, we have raised more than BND200,000 worth of bursary awards benefiting over 150 needy students.”
