INDONESIA’S Taufik Hidayat was among the participants in the SS Junior Badminton Fund- raising programme at the Sentosa Sports Arena in Petaling Jaya recently.
The programme, organised by Senheng, was to raise funds to support the trainees to compete in international competitions.
The highlight of the event were the friendly matches between trainees from the SS Junior Badminton Talents, aged from 13 to 19, against the experienced leisure badminton players.
The theme — Pick Your Opponent — enabled the leisure badminton players to choose their preferred opponent from SS Junior Badminton Talents.
Each of the participating leisure badminton player’s team contributed RM10,000 to the SS Junior Badminton Charity Fund.
The contributors were Samsung Malaysia Electronics, Panasonic Malaysia, Sony Malaysia, Toshiba Sales & Services, Pensonic Sales & Service, Hitachi Sales Malaysia, AEON Credit Service, Chartis Malaysia Insurance, 100 Values, Sharp-Roxy Sales & Service Company, Sports Arena Sentosa, Top Glove Corporation and Bonia Corporation.
Senheng Electric managing director Lim Kim Heng said the programme was part of their CSR campaign.
“SS Junior Badminton Scholar-ship is a programme we are proud of. We hope trainees from SS Junior Badminton Talents will be the next icon in the badminton sports arena with the resources, efforts and platform provided. Senheng has been organising and taking part regularly in corporate social responsibility activities.
“We believe, as a good corporate citizen, we should contribute to society,” said Kim Heng.
