Pen fundraiser (29 July - 7 Aug 2019)

Dear SST students

My name is Chua Xing Zi from S305. We are a group of ACE leaders who started the interactions@LengkokBahru with a group of under-privileged old folks. Most of these old folks live alone in a one-room rental flat and rely on public donations and social services to get by. They get together on every Saturday afternoon at the void deck of Block 52 Lengkok Bahru for lunch and interaction with some volunteers from "The Saturday Movement". We approached "The Saturday Movement" and requested to join them in their interaction sessions.

We are planning 2 Dazzling Saturdays with them. (Join us!)
1) 3 August 2019 - Jewellery making
2) 31 August 2019 - A visit to Jewel, Changi Airport

To carry out the programmes on these two Saturdays, we are doing a pen fundraiser from 29 July 2019 - 7 Aug 2019. The funds will be used to purchase materials and refreshments for the jewellery making session and the outing to Jewel. You may wish to pre-order the pen refills/ pens and pick up your purchases at the canteen during your recess time between 5 - 7 August 2019. Please bring your cash when you pick up the items.

We hope that you will be able to support us!
Thank you!

Yours sincerely
Chua Xing Zi S3-05
