Ever since the founding of the Pattaya Sports Club in 1979 and then forming an association in 1996, the motto of the club has been Promoting Sports and Supporting Local Charities.
This has been most prevalent in every aspect of the club’s operations. The communities, especially the underprivileged children in and around Pattaya, have been the beneficiaries of the PSC’s commitment to help the needy for over three decades.
This year the PSC came forward again to present educational scholarships to 200 students worth a total of 200,000 baht.
Maurice Roberts, President of the Executive Committee of the PSC, along with Community Service Chairperson Ngamjit ‘Noi’ Emerson and Dick Warberg represented the Pattaya Sports Club in meeting and personally presenting the kids with their scholarships.
The presentation ceremony was held on May 31 at the Salatte House near Khao Chee Chan where leaders of the local public and private sector were present to welcome and thank the benefactors.
Community leaders included Sakorn Leungon, Khao Chi Chan Deputy Mayor, Pol. Capt. Yongyuth Kongthong, Sub-Inspector at Huay Yai Police Station, Pol. Capt. Rungsuang Wichaiyuth, Sub-Inspector at Na Jomtien Police Station, Apiwat Jaiyungyuen, Director of Ban Thungkom School, and executives of 21 area schools.
Roberts said that the recipients of the scholarships are chosen by a school committee and the recommendations are sent to the PSC for consideration and approval. “This year we are extremely proud and happy that we could help 200 children from 21 schools in our communities to continue their education.”
Children were treated to a wholesome meal including drinks, with the highlight being the ultra-popular ‘Ancient Warrior Ice-cream’
