Shell Singapore donates S$46,000 from mass jog registrations
Nov 16, 2015
Shell Companies in Singapore today (16 November 2015) pledged a total of S$46,000 in cash and Shell fuel vouchers to our community partner Lakeside Family Services.
The funds were raised through registration fees for the Shell Mass Jog, which we organized on 24 October 2015, at the Bedok Reservoir. This is the first time we have raised funds towards a good cause through the event.
A cheque presentation was conducted at the Shell Singapore office at The Metropolis this morning between Shell Singapore chairperson Goh Swee Chen and LFS Executive Director Teo Tee Loon (see attached picture with Ms Goh on the left).
LFS runs three centres in the South West district that provide counselling, and various community and care programmes for children and youths from needy families. LFS also runs a temporary shelter for homeless families that are displaced due to financial difficulties. The South West district is a “fenceline” community neighbouring our manufacturing operations.
The Shell Mass Jog is an annual event comprising competitive routes (5km) for veterans, men and women; as well as a non-competitive route (4.3km) for participants of all ages. It is open to all Shell staff and “Friends of Shell” consisting of family members, retirees and community partners.
This year, a record 1,500 participants signed up for the event.
