RAISING FUNDS: There was a carnival atmosphere as thousands showed up at KDU College Penang for the tasty hawker food, auction and fun activities
GEORGE TOWN: Thousands of people were at the KDU College Penang's charity bazaar recently. There was a carnival atmosphere with lots of tasty hawker food and fun activities.
Sports fans came extra early to check out the items on auction. They included Datuk Lee Chong Wei's autographed badminton racquet and Euro 2012 footballs signed by Liverpool football club legends Steven McManaman and Robbie Fowler.
Hope Worldwide will channel the proceeds to pay for medical expenses in Free Mobile Clinic Service's outreach programme to rural areas, including Orang Asli settlements.
Organising chairman Joey Phuah said the bazaar had created awareness of social responsibility among the public by motivating them to help the underprivileged and rural poor.
"It's a good opportunity for those wanting to inculcate caring and charitable values in the young," she said.
Hope Worldwide Malaysia country director Darick Wong thanked KDU College Penang for working with the organisation.
"We are grateful to volunteers from the corporate sector such as Intel Technology, Berjaya Starbucks and religious organisations such as Metro Penang Church of Christ and Heong Sun See Temple for volunteering your precious weekend to help make our charity bazaar awesome," he added.
There was a games stall, clown performances and activities such as sand art for children and the young at hearts.
Ice-cream, snow ice and jelly were popular because it was a hot day.
Stalls were set up by Nestle, DPlayground Events, Amazing Magic Studios, Dreamz Production and many more.
