Singapore Red Cross Year End Carnival 2019

About the event


Over the past 70 years, the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) has served Singapore and beyond its shores with one mission - relieving human suffering, protecting lives and dignity and responding to emergencies. SRC may be synonymous with first aid, blood donor recruitment, and international disaster relief, but we do a lot more than that. Through our community services, we uplift 20,000 disadvantaged individuals and families, and those who fall through the cracks of social service. We champion for persons with severe disability; the elderly who live on their own; and the single-parents and skipped generation families who need a listening ear and a helping hand.


To commemorate our 70th anniversary and our nation's bicentennial year, the SRC will be organising the Singapore Red Cross Year End Carnival on 7th and 8th December to celebrate this occasion and to appeal to the masses to support our local works and services. Look forward to an immersive time-travel experience as we take you back to the early days of Singapore and into our current modern era with food, carnival games and retail, including VR gaming and limited edition SRC lego sets and other merchandise. There will also be song and dance performances and open-air workout sessions hosted by True Yoga.


We are also conducting a lucky draw at the event with prizes ranging from a pair of SilkAir tickets to Busan, Samsung Galaxy Watches to a weekend stay@The Fullerton Hotel and many more (see table below for the full prize list).
