Exceptional people: Hand-stitched with love: Tote bags to raise funds for ChildAid
1,324 Pupils, with parent volunteers and teachers from Yu Neng Primary School have been sewing buttons on eco tote bags with owl motifs to be sold to raise funds for ChildAid, an annual charity concert jointly organised by The Straits Times and The Business Times.
The bags will be put up for sale at urban food hall Timbre+ and at the year-end ChildAid charity concert, held at Resorts World Sentosa on Nov 24 and 25.
The tote-sewing initiative at the school is part of its Pay-it-Forward programme, a collaborative effort between Yu Neng Primary School, its parent support group and non-profit arts and culture organisation The Rice Company Limited.
