The next day, club leader Malai Rattanaviset led a group of Icelanders to the Pattaya school where they presented the donation to school director, Chid Suknu.

The group also provided refreshments and took a tour of the school. During their stay, they also bought some of the flower arrangements, keychains and multipurpose boxes the kids make to generate spending money.

Chid thanked the expat golfers for their kindness.
