1. Singapore Pools (SG Pools) turns 50 on 23 May 2018 and will be celebrating this special milestone with the community, with efforts led by SG Pools’ staff volunteer programme – iShine ('I shine in Serving from the Heart and In Nurturing Everyone').

2. Termed mega iShine day, SG Pools will dedicate 15 May 2018 - a community service day – which will see SG Pools’ staff engaging in meaningful activities in this golden jubilee celebration with the community.

3. To reinforce this commitment, SG Pools’ branches island-wide will close for half-a-day from 1:00pm. The early closure - a first in the company’s history - will allow close to 300 staff to participate and immerse themselves fully in a range of specially-curated programmes and activities.

4. On mega iShine day, each of the six iShine teams will be collaborating with their respective social service partners on specific programmes and activities for community benefit, reaching out to children and youths from disadvantaged families, special needs children, needy elderly, and the environment. 

5. The respective iShine teams are: Earth Buddiz, i-Care, i-FRIEND, Pals for Active Living (p.a.l), SportzFrenz, and Tender Love & Care (TL&C). From batik to mural wall painting, coffee-“makan”-and-movie time with the elderly, tree planting for sustainability and exercise fun with patients on the road to recovery - there is something for every willing volunteer.

6. Said Mr Seah Chin Siong, CEO, Singapore Pools, “For the last 15 years, the iShine staff volunteer programme has been making a difference to the lives of the communities we serve. The spirit of volunteerism in Singapore Pools has grown from strength to strength. It heartens me that so many of our staff are spending their time in this mega iShine and is testament to Singapore Pools’ commitment to making a difference in the lives of the communities we serve.”

7. The half-a-day closure will not affect authorised retail outlets, Livewire venues and online account services. For further information, members of the public may call Customer Service Line (24-hours): 6786 6688
