A ‘colourful’ morning for Kavieng

New Ireland’s provincial capital Kavieng was abuzz with colour this morning.

This comes after the Islands Petroleum Kavieng branch held it’s annual charity colour run.

This is the second time for the event to be held as with other centre’s around the country.

Over 500 residents and visitors took part in this morning’s event.

Kaviengs Islands Petroleum branch Manager Sutharsan Shingarabelu confirmed that up to K22,000 was raised from the event.

“ All proceeds from the shirt sales and registration fees will go to the Kavieng General Hospital, and we are greatful to all the major sponsors who came good with the money,” said Sutharsan Shingarabelu.

A team from Poliamba Oil Palm also woke up as early as 3am just to make it to the event.

The New Ireland Triathlon club led the warm up and warm down sessions.

While a number of local groups provided a number of performances to keep everyone entertained.

The organizers hope next year’s event will be even bigger and better.
