Play It Forward with your family this Chinese New Year at Frasers Centrepoint Malls' giant ball pool charity event, which will be held between 1pm to 9pmfrom 13 to 21 February 2016 at Northpoint! Adults and children alike can unwind and de-stress inside our ball pool, which is eight metres by eight metres wide, and one metre deep.
This roving charity ball pool was first introduced at Causeway Point on 22 November 2015 and saw more than 1,000 participants in just one day. This time, the ball pool will be at Northpoint for nine days - so do come and join us - before or after lunch, before dinner, after work, or on weekends! How fun is that? What's more, each participant will receive a free lollipop after their ball pool session!
Get your socks* on now and see you at Northpoint!
*Participants must wear a pair of socks before entering the ball pool. New socks are available onsite for $1; clean, recycled socks are available onsite free of charge; or participants can bring their own pair of socks.
How it works
With a minimum donation of $5 you can enjoy 15 minutes of free play in the ball pool. In return, Frasers Centrepoint Malls will match your donations dollar-for-dollar up to $30,000! And as part of the Care & Share Movement, from now until 31 March 2016, total donations will also be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Government.
Planned as a year-long initiative by Frasers Centrepoint Malls, in partnership with Community Chest, the ball pool is aimed at raising funds for Family Services Centres (FSCs). FSCs serve as community based family resources, providing much needed support for families that are facing difficulties.
