Brunei Cosplayers @ Pusat Ehsan 6th Charity Bazaar 2011

The Pusat Ehsan 6th Charity Bazaar 2011 saw the set up of 100 booths selling necessities, food, drinks, toys and others, as well as numerous activities such as horse riding, super bike ride, flying fox, reptile exhibition and the presence of cosplayers.

Representing the Brunei Cosplayers, Juw Ydee who is also a cosplayer himself, took the initiative to be involved with the event by inviting his fellow cosplayers, said that the main reason he wanted to join the event was for charity, and also to showcase and introduce cosplay to the student of Pusat Ehsan and also to the public. Another cosplayer who goes by the name of Storm Trooper, share his experience at Pusat Ehsan, saying he had great time as crowd take the opportunity to take photos with him and also for being able to donate to charity too.

Visitors to the carnival were offered a five-piece coupons booklet, priced at $5 each with lucky draw serial numbers printed. These printed numbers are dropped into the lucky draw box for a chance to win attractive prizes.

Pusat Ehsan is a non-profitable welfare NGO, providing quality learning and training, care and rehabilitation services to its 136 members at the centre and it has 27 members at its Kuala Belait Branch and needs no less than $40,000 a month to cover the costs for the provision of programmes for the special needs.

To date, the centre has been able to cover this cost with the assistance and support from all generous and caring parties in the country yet the centre always makes efforts to upgrade and increase its funds from time to time by conducting various activities such as the charity carnival.

In a press release, the management expressed their appreciation to all contributors, participants and others involved in the smooth sailing of the event and thanked members of the public for their encouraging response.
