WHILE the weather last week was largely a gloomy affair, that did not stop more than 90 individuals and organisations making up grid provider SP Group and its business partners from teeing off for a good "course".

Held on Sept 7, SP Group's Charity Golf event took place at the Singapore Island Country Club where 144 golfers put their skills to the test.

Through the event, SP Group raised S$628,888 for beneficiaries of elderly programmes under Community Chest through the SP Heartware Fund. These include programmes run by AMKFSC Community Services.

The funds raised will be used to provide vital services such as befriending, rehabilitation, counselling, caregiver support and community homes' services.

Since the inception of the SP Heartware Fund in 2005, SP Group has raised about S$14.5 million for its elderly beneficiaries, through contributions from staff, customers and business partners. SP matches all staff donations dollar for dollar.

Said Catherine Teo, SP Group's head of corporate services and chairperson of the charity golf committee: "This year, we have a record number of individuals and organisations donating to a worthy cause. We are grateful for their continued support every year. Their generosity will go a long way to help the beneficiaries lead meaningful lives."
