The Thirukoneswaram (Trinco) Lions Club has donated a consignment of mosquito nets to Tamil students who come from poor families and are being assisted by the Trincomalee Students Welfare Fund to pursue their education from Grade one to university level. The distribution of mosquito nets took place at a function held in the Trincomalee Vigneswara Maha Vidiyalayam recently under the auspices of Trincomalee Students Welfare Fund, sources said.

The London based Sky Rose Cricket Club, run by Tamils from Trincomalee settled in the United Kingdom, has been providing financial assistance to Trincomalee Student Welfare Fund (TSWF) to implement a scheme for paying monthly allowance to deserving students who are unable to find the funds to pursue their education, sources said.
