The BB CARES (Community Activities Rallying Everyone to Serve) encourages all BB Companies to rally friends, parents and stakeholders to spend a weekend with beneficiaries from various Voluntary Welfare Organizations (VWOs) over a day of activities.
Our annual BB CARES Anchor Event was held on 19 July this year at River Safari. Boys from 1st and 19th Singapore Companies, along with volunteers from City Developments Limited (CDL), arrived at River Safari early in the morning, all ready to welcome the beneficiaries from Fei Yue Seniors Activity Centres (Holland Close and Teck Whye). They were divided equally into groups made up of Boys, CDL volunteers and beneficiaries in each group. Groups gathered among for a sing-along put up by Boys from the 1st Singapore Company.
It was a pleasure to have Mr Alex Yam Ziming, Member of Parliament, Chua Chu Kang GRC, grace the event as our Guest-of-Honour. A token of appreciation was also presented to our sponsor, City Developments Limited.
After the prize presentation, the groups set off excitedly for a tour of the River Safari. Many of the beneficiaries were first-time visitors to the new attraction while others were more than happy to be in the company of Boys and volunteers.
It was a fun day out and we hope that it was a great experience for our Boys, CDL volunteers and our friends from Fei Yue Seniors Activity Centres!
