The Sri Sabah Cheras community, particularly those at PPR 3A Block 54, will now get to enjoy the benefits of nine new types of health equipment at their recreation park.
Members of the community, OCBC Bank staff and Lions Club members giving the thumbs up to the new health equipment.
The equipment to be made available will include a spinning bicycle, pilates flexor, double leg press machine and chest stretcher amongst others.
Members of Lions Club and staff of three OCBC Bank branches – OCBC Cheras, OCBC Balakong and OCBC Kajang – were on hand to engage with the local community, plant 200 kasturi trees and paint the perimeter wall around the recreation park.
OCBC Bank staff alongside Lions Club members planted 200 kasturi trees in the compound.
Lions Club also trooped out their own healthcare specialists to provide simple health checks and screenings including blood tests, diagnostics for heart ailments and blood sugar level tests.
Ms Cheong said the initiative would not have been possible without the partnership with OCBC Bank.
“We are grateful for the collaboration with OCBC Bank. On top of their RM60,000 financial contribution their staff were on hand to demonstrate their support. We are truly thankful for the successful partnership and look forward to the completion of the recreation park,” she said.
Speaking on behalf of OCBC Bank, its Balakong branch Senior Manager Mr Lim Yuok Chung said the Bank has developed a close relationship with the community through its banking presence and ongoing CSR programmes, and is thus committed to seeing this initiative flourish.
OCBC Kajang, OCBC Cheras and OCBC Balakong branch staff were present to mingle with members of the community following the Bank’s RM60,000 contribution to the initiative.
“OCBC Bank continues to strive to be more involved in the localities in which we operate and to become even more engaged in the community, going beyond simply providing superior banking products and services to meeting the social needs of the people as well.
“We are confident that our collaboration with the Lions Club will build health awareness among the community members and we are grateful to have had the chance to be involved in this CSR effort.
“And as part of our growing concern for the environment, my colleagues from OCBC Balakong, OCBC Cheras and OCBC Kajang were very pleased to have helped to plant the 200 trees here,” he said.
