Sembawang GRC MP Vikram Nair, adviser to the constituency's grassroots organisations, tossing a basketball into the air to kick-start the finals of the girls' under-16 basketball competition yesterday. From dance-offs to playing sports, some 1,800 teenagers from the People's Association Teens Network Club competed to raise funds for charity yesterday. During the sports carnival, each point they scored equalled a dollar donated. A total of $15,000 was donated to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.
