Singapore Turf Club’s inaugural Books and Toys Donation Drive raised $30,000 and collected 2,100 books and toys for children and youths from Beyond Social Services. The donation amount was raised through the sale of Singapore Turf Club merchandise on 25 and 26 July and matched dollar-for-dollar by the Club. These donations were presented to Beyond Social Services during a get-together at the Singapore Turf Club Riding Centre for 30 children and youths and families. Activities like horse patting, craft and refreshments were provided to lend to the air of revelry.
On the afternoon of 11 June, 31 youths from CARE Singapore, accompanied by staff-volunteers of Singapore Turf Club visited The Bicentennial Experience at Fort Canning Centre. The showcase enabled the youths to enrich their learning and gain a deeper understanding of Singapore’s 700-year history through a series of immersive, interactive and multimedia displays. The outing provided an opportunity for staff to engage with youths and spread good cheer with goodie bags for everyone.
