t all started with a mes­sage through the Ar­morall Face­book page re­quest­ing for spon­sor­ship of prod­ucts for a char­ity car wash. Ar­morall sub­se­quently found out that stu­dents and par­ent vol­un­teers from An­glo-chi­nese School (Barker Road) were rais­ing funds to help Joel Lim, a stu­dent stricken with leukaemia, through a car wash or­ga­nized in the school com­pound. This event was one of sev­eral ac­tiv­i­ties un­der the fundrais­ing cam­paign, Turn Things Around for

IJoel, or­ga­nized by his school­mates. A first car wash held on 27th May co­in­cided with the school’s Meet-the­p­ar­ents ses­sion. A sec­ond one took place on 29th May and mainly reached out to mem­bers of the Barker Road Methodist Church. On those bright sunny days, the An­glo-chi­nese School (Barker Road)’s mis­sion of Touch Hearts, Em­power Minds & En­rich Souls was fully demon­strated where we saw ev­ery­one come to­gether to do­nate their time and money to this wor­thy cause. To en­sure that the cars were given a good wash, Ar­morall staff were on site to teach and share wash­ing tips with the many young and ea­ger stu­dent vol­un­teers. Ev­ery­one, from alumni to par­ents, staff and stu­dents chipped in, in ev­ery pos­si­ble way to make the event a suc­cess.

Over the two days, more than 200 cars were washed. Many do­nated gen­er­ously and words of en­cour­age­ment were aplenty. It was two days of gra­cious­ness and kind­ness that are sure to go a long way.
