A BIG THANK YOU from #SSTore

Dear SST Family

We would like to THANK YOU for your generous support towards our recent pop-up #SSTore!

During Badge Ceremony on 10 January, a group of us with some student volunteers pushed our little pop-up #SSTore around school and advocated for the Fight against Diabetes: Don't Sugar-coat it. Along with our advocacy message, we sold sugar-free soya milk and handmade keychains. With your support, we were sold out and collected over $900.00. 100% of the sales proceeds will go to the running of some of our student-initiated projects organised by our very own ACE leaders.

Our next pop-up #SSTore will take place in soon! Do keep a lookout for where we ‘pop-up’! More details will be sent out at a later date.

If you are interested in helping out for the next pop-up #SSTore, scan the QR code below to sign up as a volunteer:
Once again, thank you for your generous contributions during Badge Ceremony!

Regards
Lam Yan Yu, S4-04
