Bethesda Care Services (BCS) plays an indispensable role to children, youths, families and elderly in need within the Bedok community. Rendering affordable services ranging from Integrated Special Student Care Centre (ISSCC), excITE and other services.
On 9 December, Creative Eateries is pleased to host BCS for lunch at Bangkok Jam Marina Square. The senior citizens from BCS were hesitant to interact at first, but over the course of a scrumptious Thai fare, they started to feel at ease and share their interesting stories and experiences with our volunteers.
The elderly folks from BCS were allocated to different tables based on their dominant language for better interaction.

Desserts were a must to sum up a delectable meal. Serving traditional kuehs and agar agar that are suited to their likings. Before leaving, some of the elderly even requested for the agar agar to be packed for their high tea in the late afternoon!
This lunch get-together marks the first engagement between Creative Eateries and Social Co. to build a sustainable culture of corporate giving, doing what we do best. BCS was the selected beneficiary as it plays a very critical role in supporting families in the community, especially the young and the elderly through student care, caring for the homebound elderly and operating their centre’s ageing programs.
To support the organisation beyond a one day event, Creative Eateries will be running a campaign to raise funds for BSC, which would be important and helpful to support the good work done by the centre, such as weekly medical transport services, monthly allowances for families and bursary awards for students.
We would like to appeal to all our employees, partners and diners to participate in the campaign to raise funds for BCS during this festive season.
