People’s Leasing & Finance PLC, the leading nonbank finance sector company in Sri Lanka conducts Christmas carols every year in remembrance of Jesus Christ’s birth.

Last year too in December the company held the Christmas carols session at the head office premises with the participation of its employees. The carols were attended by PLC CEO/GM Sabry Ibrahim with the senior management along with the workforce and their families.

Fr. Camillus Fernando who was the special guest announced a Christmas message.

The company also facilitated the choir of Prestantia Music College as support for them to raise funds in order to take part in the World Choir Games 2020 in Belgium. 

Sabry Ibrahim on his participation at the carols said, “Our company conducts this Christmas carols session every year with the entire world that commemorate Jesus Christ’s birth. This carols session is presented each year by the Christian and Catholic devotees in the company with dedication. It is really nice to see all our employees joining hands with their Christian and Catholic friends to make this carols session a success.”

Santa Claus appearing at the event to offer gifts to all was a soothing and happy moment.
