DETAILS OF EVENT:
MNG - My Neighbourhood Gems Corporate CARE Programme
Date: Saturday, 3rd May 2014
Time: 8.30am to 1.30pm
Venue: Henderson Community Club
Currently, we are organising a new give-back programme under the umbrella MNG - My Neighbourhood Gems Corporate CARE Programme; it is a collaborative project involving 100 staff volunteers from a bank to partake in a half day photography programme with less privileged elderly. The event will be graced by Grassroots Adviser, Ms Indranee Rajah.
The programme includes a talk, makeover session for the elderly, a photo outing shoot and lunch.
The objective is to encourage staff volunteerism; to bring smiles to the less privileged through photography.
The outdoor photo shoot area includes Gardens By The Bay, Resorts World Sentosa, Labrador Park and Singapore River (Esplanade Area). Buses will be chartered for the outdoor shoot.
