The Capricorn Coast embraces Fijian Friday

IT'S all about the floral today as the region gets behind the Fijian Friday fundraising efforts.

Community members and businesses across Capricornia are donning their best Fijian/Islander clothes in support of the people of Fiji in the wake of Cyclone Winston.

Over 40 people were killed when the monster cyclone hit Fiji last month, in what was one of the most powerful cyclones ever recorded for the area.

The efforts were organised by Vanessa Rauluni and Coal Train.

All participants are asked to drop their collections at Coal Train office before March 8, and a report of funds collected and their distribution will be made public.
