Selfless Investment into the Future

Get-together outing with Seniors @ Limbang

SING INVESTMENTS & FINANCE LIMITED believes in continuous commitment in contributing towards a good cause to the society.

For this year, we continue to partner with People’s Association to organise a Get-together Outing with Seniors to the Flower Dome & Cloud Forest @ Gardens By The Bay on Saturday, 14 July 2018.

Around 36 staff reached out to 40 beneficiaries comprising the elderly mainly from the low-income families and seniors residing at the Limbang Constituency. The targeted elderly’s age profile ranges from 60 to 90 years comprising different races and wheelchair-bound elderly residents.

As part of this befriending engagement session, our staff accompanied the elderly folks strolled through the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forests at Gardens By The Bay and marvelled at the colourful flowers and the tall indoor waterfall in the comfortable air-conditioned greenhouse. After the garden tour, it was followed by an 8-Course Sit-Down lunch at a Restaurant. The engagement was well received by the beneficiaries and their huge smiles at the end of the day were very heartwarming.

Through our annual CSR event, our employees had a good experience bonding relationship internally and also sensed the responsibilities to care for others and learn to contribute meaningfully to our society.

Project we care - Parents' Day

As part of our Community Involvement Project, SIF embarked on the Project We Care Activity by collaborating with the People's Association in organising a “Parents' Day” Event in Limbang Constituency on 23 July 2017. Elderly residents from low-income families residing at the nearby neighbourhood were invited.

Both our management's and employees' strong support of this event ensured the success of the abovementioned “Parents' Day” Event. Our CSR volunteers sacrificed their precious weekend to participate in the aforesaid Event by mingling, exercising, playing games, karaoke singing and serving food to the senior folks. It was heartening to see that the elderly had an enjoyable time at the Event.

The aforesaid Event provided our staff with ample opportunities to bond as well as caring for the underprivileged and making a meaningful contribution to our society.

We are happy that we can positively improve the lives of the less privileged segments of our society through our CSR programmes. It has been a great pleasure and honour for us to partner with People's Association for our CSR projects.

At SIF, we are committed to our sense of corporate social responsibility and with more participation in the CSR events, our employees will develop a bonding relationship with their co-workers to care for others and learn to contribute meaningfully to our society.

Project we care

In collaboration with People’s Association, SIF embarked on its first Project We Care activity on 22nd October 2016. The programme is under the umbrella of Project We Care Stay Well with Friends, with the key objective of enhancing the social well-being of the vulnerable community through corporate-initiated activities.

With the network introduction of People’s Association, we had a fabulous and wonderful time entertaining and uplifting the spirits of the elderly folks from the low income brackets including some handicapped residents at Limbang Constituency @ Choa Chu Kang. We had an exciting and fun day bringing much joy and laughter to them.

Our volunteers interacted with the elderly with some handicraft works and played guessing games with them which tested their memory and kept them active and alert. This was followed by a Karaoke singing session, healthy fruits cum buffet session with them. They enjoyed themselves singing and dancing with the volunteers and we had achieved our objective of bringing much joy and happiness to the elderly.

It was indeed heartening to see the elderly enjoying the food, games and the interactions with our volunteers. It has been our pleasure and honour to have the opportunity to work with People’s Association for our CSR projects.

SGX Bull Charge Charity Run 2016

Every year, SGX rallies the support of its listed companies and counterparts from the financial sector to raise funds for the underprivileged children and families, persons with disabilities and the elderly (namely AWWA Ltd, Autism Association, Fei Yue Community Services and Shared Services for Charities). The SGX Bull Charge Charity Run attracts more participants than any other corporate charity race in Singapore. For the first time, Sing Investments & Finance Limited contributed S$5,000 and participated in the SGX Bull Charge Charity Run 2016 which was held on 18 November 2016 at The Float @ Marina Bay. Twenty five of our staff participated in the 5km run in the financial district – all for a good cause to do their part for charity.

Other Initiatives

In line with global efforts to save the environment and reduce global warming, SIF is committed to reduce energy usage and office consumables. Reduction in paper usage is achieved by making reports available in soft copies and encouraging staff to print documents only when necessary and to print on both sides of the paper. To reduce power consumption, electrical devices and equipment are switched off when not in use and lights in the buildings appropriately dimmed after office hours. We will continue to raise the level of awareness and commitment amongst staff towards sustainability in all aspects of our social responsibility operations.

At SIF, we are committed to our sense of corporate social responsibility and with more participation in the CSR events, our employees will develop a bonding relationship with their co-workers to care for others and learn to contribute meaningfully to our society.

SIF remains firmly committed to giving back to the society and advocating good environmental practices. In our efforts to reach out to the less fortunate through community work, we organize CSR activities and encourage our staff to actively participate in these meaningful events.

On 19 September 2015, volunteers from SIF visited the Chee Hoon Kog Moral Home for the Aged Sick, a home for about 125 residents, most of whom are wheelchair-bound.

The event kicked off with our volunteers accompanying about 50 residents for their daily exercises with their physiotherapists.  Exercise was followed by a sing-along session and games before tucking in to a sumptuous meal. The visit ended with our volunteers distributing goody bags to the residents.

The reward was more than seeing the happy faces of the residents of the home. SIF staff volunteers deepened their bond with one another.

As part of our continuous effort in caring for the community, we have also donated to institutions providing free or subsidized medical and healthcare services as well as welfare societies in aid of the less fortunate. For the third consecutive year, we have contributed to Business China, a platform dedicated to raising the bilingual and bicultural quotient of Singaporeans as well as the global connectivity of Singapore.

In line with global efforts to save the environment and reduce global warming, SIF is committed to reducing energy usage and office consumables. Management and staff are educated on and encouraged to reduce paper usage, cut down on power consumption by switching off the power of devices and equipment when not in use, as well as leaving minimal lighting switched on after office hours.

We will continue to raise awareness amongst management and staff to step up on recycling efforts in as well as reducing waste from all areas of our operations.
