This year, SPARK Car Care, a business unit of ComfortDelGro Engineering (CDGE), initiated a fundraising campaign in support of Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF).

From 1 June to 31 July 2015, donation boxes were placed at 17 diesel kiosks, SPARK Car Care Centres and Taxi Maintenance workshops to collect donations. Separately, a car boot sale was organised on 13 June 2015 at the Big Splash East Coast. In all, $28,700 was raised and donated to CCF.

Mr Chia Wee Beng, a SPARK Ambassador, said: “I do not mind being a ‘salesperson’ for the CDGE car boot sale a day just to raise funds for the Children’s Cancer Foundation. It’s nothing compared to what children with cancer and their families have to go through.”

Mr Ang Soo Hock, Chief Operating Officer of ComfortDelGro Engineering, was heartened to see the philanthropic spirit displayed by both customers and staff. He said: “We are fully cognizant of our corporate responsibility and we are thankful to all our customers, especially our SPARK Ambassadors, for contributing to the fundraising efforts.”

Our SPARK Car Ambassadors and CDGE staff also brought children from CCF and their families on a day trip to Farmart Singapore and Qian Hu Fish Farm on 18 July 2015.
