Women of Lautoka look forward to another Labour of Love (LOL) market day after it turned out to be a successful one at the Narara Parade last week.

The LOL market was organized by the Labour of Love Foundation, which saw a lot of under-privileged women, the disabled and the youths show case their talents to earn a living.

The president of the LOL Foundation, Paula Rafiq said the market was busy, which was overwhelming, and vendors hope for another one next month.

?It was a big success as the markets were busy whole day and the vendors were really happy, and they are hoping for another market day to be organized next month,? he said.

The market day also featured entertainments from Lautoka?s very own Simla Boys and VOU Dance group from Suva.

A total of 40 vendors were selling at the market.
