THE Maont Tolo pan-pipers from East Kwara’ae have over the weekend helped raised more than $5000 in aid of a new local South Seas Evangelical Church (SSEC) Church in Kwaibaita, East Kwara’ae, Malaita Province.
The pan-pipers who raised the money during a one night performance put on a string of cultural and contemporary sound tracks and dances, all to the amusement and amazement of everyone that attended the fundraiser.
Speaking to this paper after the show, group leader, Lea Ago said that it was indeed encouraging to see a lot of people supporting the fundraising drive toward building the new Church.
He added that as a group, his group was indeed honored to be part of the program as well.
“It is indeed good to be part of something big, something major like this. Something that would contribute immensely to the establishment of the new Church building,” he said.
Mr Ago meanwhile thanked everyone who has supported, including the deputy Prime Minister and Member of Parliament for East Malaita, Manasseh Maelanga.
Mr Ago also thanked Church leaders and chiefs who have contributed one way or the other toward the growth and successful organizing of the program.
