Singapore Pools, together with the Singapore Sports Council (SSC) and Football Association of Singapore (FAS), launched the second installment of Football With A Heart (FWAH). This executive 5-a-side football charity fundraiser tournament saw a record 40 teams registered, 12 more than last year’s.

The teams played out the full-day tournament held at the Jalan Besar Stadium on 24 August. The whole event ended on a high note with cheques totalling $540,000 being presented to nine beneficiaries at the FWAH Celebratory Dinner on 28 August at the Singapore Flyer with President Tony Tan as the Guest-of-Honour.

One of the event’s beneficiaries, SPD was presented with a cheque of $75,000.

“We rely on the generosity of corporate partners like Singapore Pools to support the running of our programmes. We would like to thank Singapore Pools once again for organising this fundraiser and giving us a platform to highlight our cause to community,”

said Mr Abhimanyau Pal, Executive Director, SPD.
