Sport: Solomons govt funds children's futsal team trip

9:19 am on 31 December 2015

The Solomon Islands government will provide funding for two children's futsal teams to travel to Australia tomorrow for the Australian State Championships.

The government says its last minute financial intervention came after the Solomons Sport Coalition said its efforts to fundraise for the trip still left it US$9,960 short.

The prime minister Manasseh Sogavare says his government is pleased to assist such a worthy cause.
