SINGAPORE - About 120 volunteers in Eunos woke up bright and early on Saturday morning to make breakfast for vulnerable residents in the area.

At an SG50 Local Delights event held at Eunos Community Centre (CC), the volunteers worked from 5.30am to 9am to produce about 1,800 sets of kaya toast and scrambled eggs.

These were delivered to beneficiaries at 50 organisations, including Trans Family Service Centre (Bedok) and Ju Eng Home for Senior Citizens, or served to other residents who had gathered at the CC.

Part-time cleaner Madam Wong Bee Loo had volunteered to toast the bread on makeshift charcoal grills. Said the 66-year-old in Mandarin: "It makes me very happy to do this with my neighbours, that we are all volunteering together."
