    Mihintale Lake House Aloka Pooja gets Munchee support

    June 13, 2019

    Ceylon Biscuits Limited, a co-sponsor for the 57th Mihintale Lake House Aloka Pooja organised by the Associated Newspapers of Ceylon Limited (ANCL), yesterday presented the sponsorship cheque to ANCL Deputy General Manager (Advertising) Waruna Mallawaara Munchee, the flagship brand of Ceylon Biscuits Limited (CBL) and the market leader in Sri Lanka’s biscuit industry, has come forward to support the Mihintale Lake House Aloka Pooja and many other religious activities during the forthcoming Poson season, as a part of its CSR initiatives.

    As many Sri Lankans consider Poson Poya as an important religious, cultural and social event, Munchee would like to join hands with everybody in all endeavours to follow and promote the meaningful doctrine preached by Arahat Mihindu at Mihintale or Missaka Pawuva. As such, in connection with the Poson Festival, Munchee extends its support to many activities including a Bhakthi Gee competition among Dhamma schools in Anuradhapura, in association with the Shasanarakshaka Balamandalaya and the Divisional Secretary’s office.
    Groups from around 100 Dhamma schools are expected to take part in the competition which is being organised for the second time. The winners of the competition will present their performances on June 17 near the Sandahiru Seya, Anuradhapura, from 6.00 pm. Arrangements have also been made to serve pilgrims coming to Mihintale on June 15, 16 and 17 with Munchee biscuits. As a measure of support for environment protection, Munchee will distribute environment-friendly bags to devotees flocking to Mihintale during this season.
    In addition, Munchee will donate Pin Poth to all devotees observing sil at Mihintale on Poson Poya. The Pin Potha is a book used by Buddhists to write all meritorious work done by them. This book has been printed under the Munchee sponsorship for distribution among Buddhist devotees and Daham Pasal children. Munchee as a truly Sri Lankan brand has been in the forefront of corporate social responsibility in many areas, including education, arts and culture, sports, disaster relief and community development.
