VR donation IMG 6465THPC has joined Mr Seng Thammavong of the Long Thep Ice Company and Lao Ford City to arrange a US$1,500 donation to Vientiane Rescue. The THPC General Manager, Mr Robert Allen teamed up with Mr Seng on June 22 to present a cheque to volunteers from the rescue service.

The donation came through an unusual process, instigated by Mr Seng after he won discount vouchers towards the purchase of Ford vehicles while playing in golf tournaments. Hearing that THPC were looking to buy Ford cars for the company fleet, he offered the vouchers to Mr Allen on the condition that half the money was donated to Vientiane Rescue.

THPC, which supported Vientiane Rescue in 2014, was pleased to take up such an offer and borught the matter to Lao Ford City, who generously allowed the discount vouchers to be transferred. The funds will go towards funding the excellent work that Vientiane Rescue's volunteers do every day and night in Vientiane, assisting those who are caught up in accidents.
