Rawai Pool League help the The Holland House Project in Kathu.
Thank you to all the players and committee for making sure that those less fortunate get the essentials needed to get by.
The Holland House Project in Katu and houses children who do not have families or have been abused. There are currently 8 children left in the care of 4 staff who live and work there. It was a very emotional offering today, but thank you one and all especially Andre Gysin (--->) who donated 8,000 baht to the kids.
Though we only spent 13,000 baht today we will donate another 5,000 next month as promised. I could not fit any more into my car ;-) Thank you everyone in the RPL for your continued support. You are amazing.
Rawai Pool League help the Autistic Syndrome Center in Kathu.
Today at the Phuket Centre in Katu, The Rawai Pool League donated THB 15'000 to the centre that educates and rehabilitates children from as young as 5 to 18 that are autistic or have down syndrome.
This project that we decided upon came after I visited Khun Natsasi ( Head Teacher) at the centre and we talked about how the children could manage their own daily care of hens that would lay up to 150 eggs a day. These hens would come all the way from Patalung Province, and the students would collect the eggs daily in the morning, feed and give them fresh water everyday. The eggs would be used to feed the 80+ students at the centre and those who are house bound and unable to come to the centre for care. The eggs that are left will be sold to parents that bring their children to the centre and also to the local people in the area.
The profits from the eggs will be saved so that in a year from now, they would be able to once again purchase more hens for the project. The children learn new skills by keeping the pen clean, how to look after them, give a sense of responsibility to the students and above all, they really take care of the hens. It is a special time for the students to see at first hand, what it is like to nature and feed the birds and they love taking turns in mucking out and carefully removing the hens and clean out the cages by hand. The life expectancy of the hens are about 8-12 months and when they have stopped producing they are used for meals writhing the centre, this is a very hard time for the students as they get extremely attached to them over time, so it was important for us to help the Centre and buy more hens to complete the cycle. It gave me great pleasure to be at the centre and meet the farmer who brought the hens and met all the staff that worked there.
This is an on going project and the Rawai Pool League are greatful to all our patrons and friends that helped make this moment into a long and just event. Thank you making this happen everyone.
Rawai Pool League help the Rawai Temple School.

We donated, football's, netballs, basketballs, nets, volley balls, badminton rackets and cocks, skipping ropes, tennis balls, pumps and bibs in an attempt to get the students into sports.

A list of items chosen by the management was sent and we were more than happy to supply the centre with all kinds of personal gifts, so that the children would feel more comfortable with their own things. We also bought beds and duvets, sheets and blankets for new children who would be attending there after the October break.

Rawai Pool League donates a new freezer to The Good Shepherd School, Phuket Town.
The League donated a new freezer to The Good Shepherd School in Phuket Town. The backstory to this donation is a member of Phuket GOMS asked Mark Laurence if he knew anyone with an unneeded used freezer. The school's freezer had recently died, and they needed some way to keep food fresh.
Pee Ding (Pitabar), Mark Laurence (Islander Bar) and I went to the school yesterday and met with Sister Lukana Sukhsuchit who gave us a tour of the school and explained the work they do there. We all agreed that the school was a worthy cause for our funds, and afterwards we went to order the new freezer which was delivered today.
Pictured are some of the school students, the school's cook, Sister Lakana, and our RPL model representative Mark Laurence. This is the first donation (value THB 11,000) made so far from the funds we collected last season, and the Committee are working to donate more of our funds to other worthy causes in the coming weeks.
The committee is delighted to announce that the total collected for charitable causes through RPL donation boxes is THB 129,000.
This season (season 13) we placed collection boxes in each bar participating in the Rawai Pool League. Over 44 weeks of play we collected an amazing THB 129,000 which we will donate to worthy causes here in Rawai and Phuket. A massive thank you to all of you generous donors and bar owners.
