PHUKET TOWN: Tesco-Lotus Superstore will stage a free concert this Saturday (October 26) to collect relief items for victims of the floods in Northern Thailand and Isarn. Original artists featured on the limited-release CD “Pleng Phuket” (called “Pleasant Tunes of Phuket” in English), along with Phuket student bands, will take to the stage in the supercenter’s carpark from 2 pm to 7pm. Store Directing Manager Vilai Chaiviseth said, “A lot of people affected by the flooding in many provinces need help, especially donations of consumer goods and food. “Officers from the Phuket Provincial Office will help accept donated items at a booth set up near the stage. They will forward the items to the flood relief center in Bangkok,” she explained. “Even if Phuket hasn’t been affected by flooding, many thousands of people are waiting for our help in their hour of need,” she added. Of the many popular Thai singers expected to perform are Aekachai Srivichai, popular for his Southern Thai numbers, actress Kaewalin Cottland and singers Nadda Wiyakarn, Pom Autobahn and Pong Na Palian.
