The DFCC Sports Day was held on a grand scale on April 30 at the Havelock Sports Grounds.
Themed ‘Aluth Avuruddai DFCC Api’, a wide range of competitions were organised right through the day. Seven teams participated from across the bank’s branches and were named after lagna (astrological signs) in keeping with the theme.
DFCC has a history of encouraging sportsmanship and encourages its team members to compete in various sports at the company, mercantile and national levels.
The DFCC Sports Day started off at 8:00 a.m. with a four kilometre marathon around the Havelock Town area, followed by a cycle race. Thereafter, over 30 traditional Avurudu events were worked off throughout the day including favourites such as kotta pora, flag and pole, lime and spoon, etc. The active participation of staff across its branches was evident as they had all converged enthusiastically for the event.
