CARE Ride @ South West

The third edition of the CARE Ride @ South West will take place on 8 November 2023. It will be held on an MRT train for the first time. 36 Primary Six students from Lianhua Primary School and youth volunteers from both Bukit Gombak EAGLES Interact Club and Rotaract Club of Bukit Gombak would be assisting seniors residing in the Hillgrove precinct on a train ride from Jurong East MRT Station to Bukit Gombak MRT Station.

CARE Ride aims to encourage intergenerational bonding among commuters. It encourages younger commuters to be more aware and mindful of senior commuters in their midst, and to have more empathy and willingness to help, making public transport journeys more purposeful and joyful for all.

Look out for these young caring commuters during your commute on that day!
