A Day Out To The Changi Village  

19 November 2019

Accompanied by volunteers, our residents spend a day out at Changi Village. They enjoyed a delicious meal at Changi Village Hawker Centre. It is a food centre offering western food, satay bee hoon, ayam penyet and nasi lemak that’s famous there.


After their dinner, they had a relaxing stroll at the Changi Beach Park. The park still retains a kampong ambience with stretches of pristine white beaches dotted with coconut palms, park benches and shelters. 

It is an enjoyable outing for both our elderly and volunteers.

Our Visit to River Safari  23 May 2019

Together with our residents and volunteers, we visited River Safari a river-themed zoo and aquarium.  It is the first of its kind in Asia and features freshwater attractions and river boat rides. We discovered how deep Africa's Congo River runs, and the religious significance of the Ganges in India. 

Our residents had the opportunity to get up close with the river giants and emerge into the Giant Panda Forest to meet the precious gifts from China, giant pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia.

 

It is definitely an interesting experience for both our elderly and volunteers. There's certainly no shortage of fun and discovery at the Singapore River Safari!

Bright Hill Evergreen Home Won Charity Transparency Awards 2018   29 November 2018

We are proud to share that Bright Hill Evergreen Home has won the Charity Transparency Award 2018 under the Medium Charities Category on 29 November 2018.

The annual Charity Transparency Awards (CTA) was introduced in 2016 by the Charity Council to encourage charities to adopt the nine key dimensions for disclosure covering areas such as board and executive management,  financial management and controls, conduct of fund raising activities and disclosure. The award aims at promoting good governance and transparency in the charity sector and to give recognition to charities for their disclosure efforts.

Transparent disclosure will allow public and donors to have a better insight on the works of the charities, gain trusts and aid to make informed giving decisions.

Our home is grateful for the support given by our volunteers, donors and public and will continue to ride on our journey of improvement and strive for greater governance excellency.

A Trip to the National Museum   

21 November 2018

The National Museum of Singapore tells the intriguing story of everyday life through the different eras in Singapore's history. We discovered how modern and progressive people were in colonial times. 


During our tour, our elderly saw various historical figures and people from different communities in the past and explore how they used to live and learn about the history and culture of Singapore. 


It was a fun and rewarding learning journey for both our elderly and volunteers.

A Memorable Outing to National Orchid Garden  01 June 2018

It was a memorable outing to National Orchid Garden for our residents. Some have never seen so many orchid varieties! To many of our residents, it is their first time there.


They are really amazed, to get up close to many species of orchid and to discover the diversity of this species of flower. The most important thing is to escape away from the concrete city into a land of colour and peace.


On the way back to the Tanglin Gate. We spotted the iconic Tembusu tree, the tree that is depicted at the back of Singapore's $5 notes. It is estimated to be about 170 years old. 


We have to say goodbye to this wonderful place. We will surely have another visit next time.
