Lunch treat for the elderly


Forty seniors from Toa Payoh Care Corner Seniors Activity Centre were treated to a lunch of local delights, including nasi lemak, yesterday. They were hosted by members of the Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) Staff Volunteers Club. Among the 21 volunteers who helped out at the event were Ms Angela Schooling (standing, right) and Ms Catherine Ong (in striped top). The lunch was held at Dignity Kitchen in Serangoon Avenue 3. It is a social enterprise that trains the disadvantaged and disabled to be hawkers. The event was organised in celebration of the SPH club's fifth anniversary. Over the past five years, the club has organised various charity activities, such as Lunching in the Dark in support of the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped, and SPH Loose Change Day to raise funds for the Community Chest.
