SINGAPORE: The season of giving has come early for some 300 seniors, who enjoyed a lunch organised by the four Accor Hotels in Singapore.
The lunch was organised together with the Central Singapore Community Development Council (Central CDC), for seniors from underprivileged backgrounds.
They were treated to song and dance performances, and also received red packets from guest—of—honour, Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong.
The red packets, containing a token sum of S$5 each, was raised by Accor Hotels’ staff members.
There was also a cheque presentation of S$14,000 to the Central Singapore CDC which will go towards supporting under—privileged seniors under the Bright Homes Programme.
The programme will equip volunteer groups and community partners with funds to cater to the social, psychological and other needs of seniors living in one or two—room rental flats.
