Red Cross Charity Bazaar 2012
The Mission participated at Singapore Red Cross Charity Bazaar on the 21st of October 2012. The Red Cross International Bazaar is an annual event which brings together the diplomatic missions in Singapore as well the local communities to raise funds for Singapore Red Cross local humanitarian services.
The mission set up a Sri Lankan Tea stall which saw thousands of people enjoy freshly brewed Sri Lankan tea. The total sales proceedings of tea were donated to The Singapore Red Cross. Whilst raising funds for charity the event also provided a good opportunity to promote Sri Lanka tea amongst Singaporeans as well as diplomatic staff and families.
His Excellency, President Dr. Tony Tan Keng Yam of Singapore participated as the guest of honour at the event and enjoyed a cup of Sri Lankan tea at the Sri Lankan Tea stall.
Over 100 stalls were set up at the event by various embassies, international and local companies, schools and non-profit organisations with more than 10,000 people attending the occasion.
