Intergeneration Christmas Party 2019

On 18 December 2019, we held our very first intergenerational Christmas party with more than 100 seniors and children coming together to celebrate the season of giving!

As one of the first few organisations in Singapore to pioneer an Intergenerational Programme, we are so glad that we have many new faces joining us for the very first time! It was an afternoon filled with exciting games and carols sing-a-long session to celebrate the joy of Christmas.

We have a team of senior volunteers who joined us in this joyous event and performed Christmas carols on their Ukeleles. They may be old, but on that day, everyone was young at heart! Thank you for blessing us with your talents! Moreover, we want to give thanks to our volunteers who specially took time off from work to be with us at our party!

One heartwarming moment was when our children and youths took the opportunity to serve seniors with food and drinks. They learnt how to show kindness and empathy towards our seniors through simple acts of love! We love how intergenerational bonding has allowed our children and youths to mingle with the seniors from our drop-in programmes, bridging the gap between the two diverse generations!
