In the spirit of giving during the Christmas season, 46 staff volunteers from BNP Paribas Singapore sang Christmas carols to waiting patients of the National Cancer Centre Singapore — a Corporate Philanthropic partner of BNP Paribas Singapore — on the 11th and 13th of December 2012.
Our “Santa’s helpers” delighted patients and medical staff with their merry caroling, from “Jingle Bells” to “Feliz Navidad”, which were received with clapping and cheering. Staff volunteers also went from floor to floor handing out Christmas goodies to patients at the various clinics. Some patients even came up to our staff volunteers to shake their hands and to personally thank them.
Leading up to this local community outreach initiative, staff volunteers took time out of their busy schedules to lend their support — attending weekly practice sessions to rehearse songs, packing Christmas goodies during their lunch breaks, and sourcing Christmas outfits.
The National Cancer Centre Singapore treats nearly 70 per cent of the public sector cancer cases in Singapore.
