HFC Bank has presented a cheque of $15,000 to Fiji Cancer Society.
The amount is a culmination of the banks staff fundraising campaign held in the month of October which was matched cent to cent by the bank.
HFC Bank CEO, Rakesh Ram says through their ‘Women in Leadership’ initiative, the bank provided their 6 women leaders with the opportunity to plan, coordinate and lead the bank’s Pinktober fundraising initiative.
Mere Cavu (Manager Credit Approvals & Asset Quality), Shilpa Jogia (Senior Business Relationship Manager), Ateca Whippy (Manager Lending Support – Retail), Shimal Naidu (Customer Advocate), Georgina Naigulevu (Senior Manager Applications, Projects & Innovation) and Ashwindar Singh (Manager Retail Assurance) were selected and they started the bank’s Pinktober fundraising campaign with an awareness talk from breast cancer survivor Vosita Tokalauvere together with Fiji Cancer Society personnel.
HFC Bank says this was followed by fundraising through staff mufti, walkathon, morning tea, kati and Pinktober T-Shirts.
They say Damodar Events, Hot Bread Kitchen, Lami Kava and Vodafone Fiji also stepped in and supported this cause by sponsoring prizes for the Banks Walkathon.
The committee acknowledged and appreciate the overwhelming support from the entire HFC Bank staff who collectively raised the highest amount ever contributed by HFC Bank to Fiji Cancer Society.
