SINGAPORE - Volunteers from Temasek International, and beneficiaries and caregivers from Singapore Anglican Community Services for psychiatric services joined hands on Friday (June 24) to create the largest-ever collage of post-it notes, as part of efforts to raise awareness about mental health in Singapore.

The record-breaking collage, which made it into the Singapore Book of Records, comprised 9,300 colourful post-it notes and measured 11.4m by 4.5m. It spelt the word "Discover", which was the theme for Temasek's Community Day this year.

Ms Chan Wai Ching, Temasek's joint head of the corporate development group and head of organisation and people, said that on the annual Community Day, staff in all Temasek offices around the world "play a part helping those in need".

The Community Day is organised by T-Touch, Temasek's staff-driven volunteer initiative, which also organises various community outreach initiatives throughout the year. The activities are funded through Temasek staff donations.

Over the last few years, Temasek staff have worked with beneficiaries including the intellectually challenged, ex-inmates and their families, students who are academically weaker, children from disadvantaged backgrounds and needy seniors.
