Bandar Seri Begawan, 3rd August 2013 – Still in the spirit of Ramadhan, Baiduri Bank staff members today held yet another charity drive and donated some much needed supplies and household amenities to 17 underprivileged homes.

The 17 underprivileged families involved have been identified with the help of the Community Development Department (JAPEM) to be those in need of financial assistance.

This community service activity is staff initiated through the Baiduri Bank Recreational Club (BBRC). They rallied volunteers from members of staff, and organised an overwhelming amount of staff donations to be given away during this charity drive.

Melanie Haji Dennis, the Chairman of the BBRC said, "The objectives of BBRC have always been about promoting social, sport and recreation activities and aiming to strike that balance between work and play. Now the opportunity has come for BBRC to also be involved in community service activities."

She added, "We were extremely touched by the amount of donations from our kind hearted colleagues. This is the first time that we've organised such an activity and judging from the response it certainly will not be the last."

Dorothy Newn, Head of Corporate Communications and Marketing of Baiduri Bank excitedly remarked, "We are extremely happy to support BBRC community service efforts. From our past experience, Baiduri Bank staff has always been very receptive to our CSR activities and we're definitely loving that the spirit of volunteerism and charity lives and thrives within Baiduri Bank’s members of staff."

Last week, Baiduri Bank also fulfilled its corporate social responsibility commitment by providing relief to 20 underprivileged families in Brunei Darussalam with a fun filled shopping spree in Hua Ho Department Store in Kiulap, followed by an iftar session in Aneka Rasa Restaurant also in Kiulap. Members of Baiduri Bank staff, who also volunteered, accompanied each family with their shopping, to socialize with the families and get to know them better.
