Joyce Ottio

Over K27,000 raised for late Ottio

The figure was bumped up after yesterday’s trial match between the SP Hunters and Brisbane Broncos at the National Football Stadium.

Buckets were placed at the gates with K1,960.85 collected plus another K5,000 from the PNG Rugby Football League.

The cheque was presented to Joyce Ottio at half-time by Chairman of the PNGRFL, Sandis Tsaka.

Trust fund to fulfil Ottio’s dream

Before officially handing over the body to Ottio’s family at the funeral service held today, Chairman of the PNGRFL, Sandis Tsaka, said the Kato Ottio Trust Fund was opened yesterday.

He said Ottio had always dreamt of building a house for his mother, Joyce, and the PNGRFL wanted to make this dream come true in honour of the late SP Hunters and PNG LNG Kumuls star.

Tsaka welcomed contributions from the general public who wish to assist by depositing money into the Trust Fund.

He said the account will be closed next Thursday, January 18, at 12pm.
