Piloted by the Rotary Club of Bukit Timah in partnership with the Rotary Club of Suntec City
The project strives to engage 40 to 80 seniors per session from Elderly Homes or Rental Flats for a total of 4 sessions throughout a year, where the seniors will be engaged with the Mental Fitness Game of Rummikub. At the same time, we support Dignity Kitchen, a social enterprise providing life-skill and vocational training to adults with mental and/or physical disabilities for employment in the F&B industry.
Rummikub, which is the mental fitness game supported by FRCS, is the perfect game to actively engage our seniors to prevent the ageing of their mental faculties.
The first pilot service day project was held on 10 Oct 2015, the World Mental Health Day. In partnership with the Rotary Club of Suntec City and their Rotaractors and Interactors, we held another session with great success on 23 Jan 2016. More sessions will be organised at regular intervals till end of June 2016.
We look forward to partnering with any corporate organisation such as the Cotton On to bring this project to the next level, involving more youths, i.e. our Rotaractors and Interactors as well as employees of Cotton On.
