City Gas Gives Back to Community
City Gas staff gathered at Spastic Children’s Association (SCAS aka Cerebral Palsy’s Centre) on 23 May 08 for a handicraft-making workshop. With the instructors’ assistance, our staff worked with the children with cerebral palsy between ages of 5 – 14.
The workshop began with tracing, colouring and the picture to be inserted into a photo frame. Our staff and the children also designed many wonderful looking clothes pegs as well as sweet little ‘Thank You’ cards. It is very heartening to see the concentration and determination on their little faces and our staff sitting next to them trying not to take over the task.
All these items were sold in a 3D2N marathon of activities sponsored by City Gas, organised by Nanyang Technological University. The 8 teams that participated in the marathon went around 20 town & heartland areas from 6-8 June 2008. City Gas and NTU have helped raised closed to $13,000 for SCAS. It will be a long and arduous journey for these children but with our help, their journey can be smoother, brighter with more laughter. With our warm hearts and support from the society, we hope these children will be able to lead more independent and meaningful lives.
