March 25, 2017 – ABN AMRO Wooden Shoe Hockey Tournament is a charity tournament organized by the Dutch Hockey Community for the Singapore Hockey Community. NCA is proud to partner with them to raise money to help the underprivileged in Singapore.
The tournament took place recently over the weekend, where it was a resounding success with NCA raising over SGD 3,000. The event had a great mix of camaraderie and sportsmanship where both participants and audience had an exciting time! In addition, NCA would like to congratulate all the hockey finalists!
The proceeds from the event will go towards feeding the underprivileged families in Singapore who fall below the poverty line. These beneficiaries are taken care of by The Breadline Group who have currently adopted more than 200 families in need. A part of the proceeds will also go towards education and support for young underprivileged girls through Project Pari that gives them regular allowances. (Project Pari video).
