Corporate Social Responsibility

While we continue to drive business growth, it is equally important to help the less fortunate and ensure that they are not left behind. Hanwell’s corporate citizenship programme is anchored on the commitment  to positively impact the communities we serve – be it the needy families, elderly or other less fortunate groups of people – and improve their lives.
Sales of specially designed Chinese New Year Beautex boxes to benefit special needs children
In April 2015, Beautex raised more than S$20,000 for the Rainbow Centre from sales of specially designed packs of tissue paper during the Chinese New Year season. One of the boxes in each pack of five was printed with colourful and lively artwork from two Rainbow Centre students, adding on to the festive cheer. 

Life’s Beautiful

Tipex’s signature Beautex Life’s Beautiful art competition was  held  at  Sentosa on 14 June 2014. Launched six years ago, the annual event, which encourages school children to express themselves through art, continued to attract strong participation from children and their families. Winning artworks were printed on limited edition Beautex tissue boxes, with Tipex donating 20 cents to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund for every five-box pack sold. At the end of this meaningful campaign, Tipex’s total donation amounted to S$22,569.40.

Collaboration With The Rainbow Centre

In November 2014, Tipex collaborated with the Rainbow Centre – a charity organisation that helps children with special needs – to launch limited edition Beautex tissue boxes that featured colourful artworks drawn by the children. Tipex donated 20 cents to the centre for every five-box packs sold. The six-month campaign will be ended in April 2015. All proceeds will be used to fund education and training to stretch the children’s developmental potential.

Hanwell cares

Employee volunteering is another critical component of Hanwell’s corporate citizenship programme. We strongly encourage staff to volunteer their time with welfare organisations. In 2014, employees from our various subsidiaries joined volunteers at Willing Hearts to prepare 3,000 meal boxes for distribution  to the less privileged elderly and families.

Hanwell Longest Rally

To celebrate Hanwell’s 40th anniversary, a record-breaking Hanwell Longest Rally event was organised on 24 August 2014 at Changi Point. Hanwell staff were joined by former national shuttlers Ronald Susilo, Ashton Chen, Xing Aiying and Terry Yeo, Minister of Parliament Ang Hin Kee, as well as 295 school youth players and members of the public to register a new mark of 119 unique hits in a badminton rally, breaking the previous Singapore record of 96 hits!To commemorate  the event, Hanwell Group donated 9,520kg of Royal Umbrella Rice to needy families in the Cheng San-Seletar Division.

Rice From the Heart Campaign
Our ‘Rice From the Heart’ campaign at iEcon stores continued to witness generous donations from members of the public. A significant amount of Golden Peony rice was donated to three charity organisations, namely the Chinese Development Assistance Council (CDAC), Food From The Heart and Willing Hearts.
Our mantra of giving
In addition to the above corporate citizenship initiatives, the Group regularly supports other community and charity organisations through sponsorships, either in kind or cash.
