Eurokars Group is Honoured as a Friend of Singapore Red Cross
Eurokars Group was conferred the prestigious Friend of Singapore Red Cross Award at the Singapore Red Cross’ 70th Anniversary commemoration and annual awards ceremony held at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront on 30 September 2019.
Ms Angeline Tan, General Manager, Group PR and Corporate Communications, Eurokars Group, received the Friend of Singapore Red Cross Award on behalf of Eurokars Group from the President of the Republic of Singapore, Her Excellency, Madam Halimah Yacob, who is also the Patron of the Singapore Red Cross.
Eurokars Group’s partnership with the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) dates back to 2002 when it sponsored a vehicle for them. Earlier this year, the SRC reached out again to the group for support, and there was a good match between its CSR goals and SRC’s requirements.
Earlier this year, Eurokars Group made a donation towards TransportAid, a service provided by the SRC which provides transport for low-income elderly and disabled to enable them to get to their healthcare service providers and day activity centres, and have access to essential and critical medical treatments, rehabilitation and therapy.
This contribution to SRC is the latest in a string of similar donations. Prior to this, in November 2017, Eurokars Group donated a vehicle which was modified for wheelchair access to SPD, formerly known as Society for the Physically Disabled. In addition to the vehicle donation, Eurokars Group is also covering all servicing costs related to the vehicle. Before that, the group made a co-donation, together with the Rotary Club, of a vehicle which was also modified for wheelchair access to the Tan Tock Seng Patient Care Centre in 2007. The vehicle considerably improved the services that the Centre could provide in shuttling patients, obtaining necessary supplies and conducting other essential activities.
As a leading purveyor of a portfolio of quality car brands and the largest privately-owned car distributorship in Singapore, Eurokars Group firmly believes in the power of automobiles in enhancing the lives of people and empowering them to fulfil their aspirations, and meet their needs and requirements. These contributions are in line with the group’s unwavering mission of contributing and making a positive impact on the community which it serves and in which it operates.
In tandem with the 70th Anniversary of the Singapore Red Cross, Eurokars Group extended its heartiest congratulations to the SRC on its milestone achievements. Over the past years, the SRC has established itself as a humanitarian organisation in Singapore that provides assistance and relief to survivors of disaster, blood to hospital patients, first aid training to the public and emergency social services to citizens, among others.
Eurokars Group is delighted to be able to contribute towards the SRC in achieving its mandate and laudable mission of relieving human suffering, protecting human lives and dignity and responding to emergencies.

Moving forward, Eurokars Group will continually engage with and contribute to social enterprises, non-profit and charitable organisations in ways that are aligned with the group’s core business, CSR focus and mandate.
