Pattaya journalists put down their notepads and put on aprons as they served lunch to students at the Redemptorist School for the Blind.
Atipbdee Boonchalee, editor of the Sieng Siam newspaper, led the group to the school to show they are not just news reporters, but also care about people who care about the community as well.
The menu included stir-fried ribbon noodles topped with thick gravy, various sweets, fruits and ice cream. The cost to the group was 6,500 baht.
Dawan Lueprom, Atipbdee’s mother, said she was happy to have attended and was happy to see the kids enjoy the company of the journalists.

“Some journalists were not able to make it, but they contributed cash to help buy food and other items to show their support while some brought their own food and drinks to share. It was a great way to show support,” she said.
Before departing, the journalists contributed 25,000 baht to the school. They noted the students are still in need of basic necessities such as talc, soap, toothpaste, clothes, and milk.
