Earlier today (July 24) at the 4,000-seat Indoor Stadium at Saphan Hin, Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong presided over the start of a two-day event being held from 8am-4pm today (July 24) and tomorrow (July 25) to mark His Majesty The King’s 66th Birthday which falls on Saturday (July 28).

Later, at 1:30pm, people who had registered to take part in the event went to Saphan Hin’s football stadium and pledged “we will do good things with our hearts” in front of HM The King’s image.

Volunteers were then taken by shuttle bus to clean local canals and other designated areas.
