In order to facilitate and enhance interaction between LLF and
our beneficiaries, an Annual Holiday Party was held @ Universal Studios
Singapore on 9 September 2011.
The reason why Universal Studios Singapore was selected as the
venue of our event for year 2011 is because for our outings, we strive to
choose places which will cater to the wide age group of our beneficiaries and
their family members. Additionally, as much as possible, LLF hopes to bring
them to places which they are interested but do not have the time or means to
go as a family due to various reasons like monetary costs, physical
restrictions as a result of medical condition etc…
When approached by LLF, Universal Studios Singapore kindly
charged us at a special rate for the entrance tickets and also for our lunch.
Additionally, a surprise appearance of Madagascar characters was arranged for
our beneficiaries and their family members.
Being a non-profit organisation without government assistance,
it is difficult for LLF to conduct activities and outings on a regular basis
without sponsorships or donations. Though we do have a regular base of donors
and sponsors, the funds raised are mainly used to provide financial assistance
for our beneficiaries’ high treatment costs. Therefore, the sponsorship by Mr.
Anson Ng for our entrance tickets was deeply appreciated.
The event would also not be a success without the help of our
volunteers who helped to ensure the order of the group, especially when moving
from one attraction to another. The dedicated volunteers ensured all the
beneficiaries and their family members had their meals served correctly before
they could finally take their lunch break. LLF would like to thank SMU Rotaract
Club for asking their members, namely Ms. Grace Tay, Mr. Ong Chu Xian, Ms. Tan
Li Wei, Ms. Tow Meizhen and Ms. Yeo Lian Ping, to assist in the event. LLF
would also like to thank our individual volunteers, namely Ms. Garett Ann
Ocampo, Mr. Muhammad Shafii Bin Md Said, Mr. Nicholas Tay, Mr. Ong Jian Jun,
Ms. Prudence Eve Poh and Ms. Wong Manyan.
