Sunday, 8 March, dawned bright and clear, as a crowd of 300 gathered at SADeaf to take part in the ERA Charity Walk 2015. Our long-time Ambassador for the Deaf, ERA Realty Network Pte Ltd, had organised this fundraising event for the third time. The participants consisted of ERA staff and agents, as well as our Deaf clients and students from the Singapore School for the Deaf.
SADeaf Patron, Ms Ho Ching, also turned up to show her support and even walked the entire route with us! SADeaf President Dr Christopher Low and members of the Executive Council were on hand to receive our patron and ambassador. At the end of the walk, which looped around the open space at the Sports Hub, Mr Jack Chua, CEO of ERA, gave a short speech and presented a cheque of $80,000 to us.
We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to the ERA folks for their big hearts, and also wish to extend a warm welcome to ERA, as it had just moved to its new head office at Mountbatten Square beside our premises. Hello, neighbour!
