Participants at the Count on Me! charity event filling bags with items useful for school-going children such as water bottles, lunch boxes, stationery and notepads on Thursday. More than 1,000 bags, which will be given to recipients of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund, were collected.
The bags and their contents were donated by CPA Australia, which organised the event with the Singapore Accounting Commission in conjunction with International Accountants' Day. The event was held at The Lawn at Marina Bay, and saw different charities set up booths to raise funds.
