New centre for less fortunate opens
People who are poor or disadvantaged can now seek help at a new centre that gathers various charities under one roof. Those who have financial difficulties, disabilities or mental health issues, or are former convicts, can turn to Agape Village in Toa Payoh, which opens today. The services of 24 Catholic charities and social service agencies are available at the centre, run by Caritas Singapore, the social arm of the Catholic Church here.
Nail-biting end to S-League season
Brunei DPMM appear to have it done and dusted, leading the S-League football table by two points and with a better goal difference. But for the second year running, they risk missing out on the title on the very last day today. Tampines Rovers are not giving up on the chase but they must beat Harimau Muda at the Jurong West Stadium by a big margin and hope that Balestier Khalsa do them a favour by upsetting their rivals in Bandar Seri Begawan.
