It was a celebration of 130 years of educating boy’s for Ananda College Colombo and Sri Lanka’s 100% local dairy manufacturer Pelwatte Dairy was there to support the walk and fun fair that was held at Green Path, Colombo.

The walk started from Ananda College and finished at Hawkers’ Street (Green Path) and was followed by a Mini Carnival and a Fun Fair. The funds raised at the event are to be utilised towards improving educational and infrastructural facilities of Ananda College.

Pelwatte Dairy was the main sponsors for the event which saw more than 5,000 participants. The dairy company showcased their extensive range of dairy products including exotic flavours of ice-cream and all-natural yoghurt. Delicious iced-coffee with Pelwatte ice-cream, chocolate swirl sundaes, caramel vanilla sundaes and fruit cocktail sundaes kept the crowd rehydrated throughout the hot day.  Their team was also on hand to educate visitors on the importance of purchasing locally produced milk products which are high in quality and positively contribute to the local dairy industry.
