Honiara Eve Zumba exercise class as part of its quarterly charity initiatives, donated school stationaries to the Red Cross Special Development Centre at Rifle Range yesterday.

Eve Zumba class instructor Evelyn Basi said these charitable incentives from her class are about giving back to the community.

She says the donations are funded through her class session takings and there will be three more charity events from her class later on this year.

“Our takings every day we set aside amounts towards charity,” she says.

Each year in October Zumba classes in Honiara combined for the Pinktober, which is their major charitable event for breast cancer.

Principal Jiope Ralulu Iputu in receiving the donation thanked the Zumba ladies for their timely support.

“These will help towards the students learning and we really appreciate the donations,” Mr Iputu expresses.

The Special Development Centre is one of the programmes under the Red Cross umbrella for children with disabilities.

Seventy-eight students with special needs enrolled this year in the school.
