Appco Group Singapore’s fundraising ambassadors snap rare ‘wefie’ with Prime Minister

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong was all smiles when Appco Group Singapore’s Streets Team for 365 Cancer Prevention Society (365 CPS) approached him for a ‘wefie’. He was in Ang Mo Kio as the guest of honour at a town council event and to interact with residents and tenants.

That day, the 365 CPS Team was also pitching in Ang Mo Kio. Field representatives Perlin, Kelvin, and Ben approached the prime minister and had a brief talk with him. Appco Group Singapore has been helping the non-profit organisation since March 2014.

There are approximately 40 - 50 professional fundraisers who help 365 CPS in its mission to educate the community on how to prevent and fight cancer holistically. As of July this year, the fundraisers had helped the charity raise more than S$3 million. Appco has already surpassed its target number of donors for the whole of 2015, having signed more than 7,000 active donors.

The charitable organisation uses the funds collected by Appco Group Singapore to continuously share cancer prevention messages as well as to promote a healthy lifestyle and lymphatic detox exercise programmes. 365 CPS also provides emotional support to cancer warriors through residential and hospital visitations.

Appco Group Singapore’s fundraising ambassadors also helped 365 CPS in one of its milestones – the establishment of its first Day Activity Centre. The facility is a great help to cancer patients and their family members. The charity aspires to construct a rehab centre, a counselling centre, and a healthy food centre in the future.

Ben Chua, Executive Director, 365 Cancer Prevention Society is thankful to Appco for all their support. He said: “Thank you Appco for all the fundraising efforts that are committed to 365 Cancer Prevention Society. This is significant to us as the efforts have given us more support from the public and certainty in making plans for the future.

“Since the start of the fundraising events, we have seen an increase of public awareness, donations and volunteers joining our cancer prevention and cancer fighting work. Thank you Appco for making such an impact for VWOs like us!”
