Pedalling for charity

HSBC celebrated its 15th year in corporate social responsibility in Singapore with “The 15th Anniversary Challenge”, a 15-minute team pedalling event.

Leading the cycling charge at the Singapore Flyer was Acting Sports Minister Chan Chun Sing, and the bank’s group general manager and CEO, Alex Hungate.

S$60,000 was raised from the pedalling challenge, through the total distance clocked by the teams on their gym bikes.

To show its support for education for the needy and disadvantaged children, HSBC also donated S$300,000 to fund education programmes at six voluntary welfare organisations.
