PHUKET: Cindy Ratcliffe, President of the Phuket International Women’s Club (PIWC), has called for businesses and island residents to sponsor, donate prizes and attend the PIWC’s annual fund-raising Gala Ball, this year to be held at the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Beach Resort & Spa on November 18.

“We intend to make this event a glittering evening of revelry and fun. To help us achieve this, we are hoping for many sponsorships, donations and table bookings from businesses and residents of Phuket and other provinces,” said Mrs Ratcliffe.

“Our aim is to raise funds for the education of disadvantaged Thai children whose families would otherwise be unable to afford their schooling. We firmly believe that the best way out of the cycle of poverty is through education and working together.

“We now have more than 220 students, many of whom have benefited from the generous donations and sponsorships from last year’s ‘Evening with the Stars’ event. This year, we are aiming to raise funds to ensure that our existing scholarship students can continue their education as well as providing scholarships for deserving, new children to receive an education,” she said.

This year’s Gala Ball is themed “Italian Masked Venetian Carnevale”.

All sponsors will have their names and company logo displayed in the program booklet, which will be given to all 450 guests at the event.

Strong wind and waves this morning closes Phuket’s beaches, one swimmer rescued | The Thaiger

Phuket’s Rawai Mayor, Aroon Solos, ordered all beaches in the area to close after a foreigner was rescued this morning after being unable to make it back to shore. The foreigner was swimming off Ao Sane beach, just north of the popular Nai Harn Beach, when lifeguards were sent out to help bring him back to shore. The recent weather has been partly attributed to Tropical Storm Noul as other beaches areas around Patong have been closed since Friday. Mayor Aroon ordered both the Nai Harn and Ya Nui beaches closed until further notice. Noul crossed over the Vietnamese coastline […]

Phuket residents going hungry after local government assistance runs out | The Thaiger

Residents in Phuket, particularly those living in and around the west coast townships, are reportedly going hungry as the government’s municipal budget to provide food has been depleted. Despite efforts to revive tourism in the area, thousands of people are still in need of donated food to survive and continue to queue up for donated food every day. A public relations staff member at the Patong municipality says, sadly, there is no budget to do any more food handouts in the near future and that there is no word on when or if there will be any more handouts.
