Gleneagles Penang Charity Fun Day & Garage Sale
In support of the Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Pink October, Gleneagles Penang had taken the initiative to organize a programme called Gleneagles Penang Charity Fun Day. This is an annual effort to increase awareness of the disease whilst raising funds to care for patients with cancer and other advanced critical illnesses in Penang.
The proceeds will be contributed to Penang Hospice Society.One aspect of cancer care that many are unaware of is hospice care for the terminally ill. Penang Hospice is a non-profit NGO that provides care for terminally ill patients and moral support for their loved ones on a voluntary basis.
Cancer awareness is one of the topics quite dear to me, and to help raise awareness about cancer, I participated in the garage sale, selling unwanted items and giving them a new home.
The day was packed with many fun-filled activities. The morning started off with a Zumba session followed by telematch for those that wanted to participate in some outdoor activities. As the day went on, people started flooding in to have a glimpse of what was on sale. These activities had drawn a crowd of more than 200 visitors!
It was truly an eventful day, what better way to spend the weekend than helping raise funds for charity!
