Raising money for the Thai children of Chaloklam

A few days ago at Sail Rock Divers, the expat and local Thai community of Chaloklum came together to celebrate the retirement of a highly respected teacher “Mr Oot”. The event was organised not only to thank Mr Oot for his years of service but also to raise money for the local village school to have a drinking water filtration system.
Over 300 people attended the fundraiser from all over Koh Phangan, Thanks to everyone involved, It was a fun and successful party. Even the Karaoke was good !
The total amount raised from this evening was a staggering 38,000THB.
Check out some of the pictures and see how happy the kids were.
