TRICHY: Trichy Corporation officials on Thursday gifted a bicycle to a five-year-old boy who donated his piggy-bank savings  to help cyclone Gaja-affected people in the delta districts.

The Trichy Corporation has been collecting relief materials for the affected people in Nagapattinam, Tiruvarur, Thanjavur and Pudukkottai districts for the last one week. The boy, S Pranav of Shanmuga Nagar, handed over Rs 750 worth relief materials to the Shanmuga Nagar Residents Welfare Association (RWA).

For the past two years, he has been saving the money we give him. On seeing the visuals in television channels displaying the damage caused by cyclone Gaja, he told us that he wanted to spend the savings to purchase essential commodities for the affected people,” Pranav’s father R Senthil Kumar said.

Recognising the gesture of the UKG student, the RWA in Shanmuga Nagar informed Trichy Corporation officials about it. The officials collected money from among themselves and gifted the boy a bicycle worth Rs 3,600.

“We wanted to encourage good Samaritans like Pranav so that other children of his age would get inspired to help the needy. Giving up his savings for a noble cause was widely appreciated by the corporation employees,” commissioner of Trichy Corporation, N Ravichandran said.

The civic body has so far supplied Rs 44 lakh worth relief materials to the cyclone-hit districts besides deputing 200 sanitary workers for relief works in Tiruvarur and Nagapattinam districts. It also sent 15 water tankers to Pudukottai and Thanjavur districts to address the water shortage in relief camps.
