Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Nov 2021, 11:59 PM

Hi everyone,

As part of the team working with ex-offenders and their families, I would like to do my part in supporting the organisation in the 4ward Together 4 Million Steps campaign to raise fund for our work with ex-offenders and their families. For more information on what we do and campaign details, please check out more information below.

The campaign will end with a finale walk from Jurong to Changi on 26 November supported by staff and volunteers of Lakeside Family Services. I have also been training since September, incrementally increasing the distance, hoping that I will be able to participate and finish the 38km walk.

Do support us with your donation, which will go a long way in supporting our clients in their integration journey. Looking forward to your generosity! :)

Cheers!
Jenny

About Campaign

Lakeside Family Services launched its first #AMillionSteps fundraising campaign in 2020, targeting to reach 1 million steps together to raise funds for our programmes serving (ex-)inmates and their families.

This year, we hope to continue supporting them in their journey to reintegration. Together with all our staff, volunteers and friends of Lakeside, we are committed to pledge 1,000 steps for each of the 4,000 (ex-)inmates we work with.

In the spirit of going the distance together, our campaign this year is titled 4ward Together 4 Million Steps. Together with all our staff, volunteers and friends of Lakeside, we hope to walk 4 Million Steps and raise $300,000.

Lakeside provides a wide range of services, including:

1. Family Resource Centre, a one-stop centre for inmates and their families

2. Case Management Support for inmates on the Work Release Scheme

3. Life skills workshops through our Release Preparation Programme

4. Televisit services for families to visit their loved ones in prison through our teleconferencing facility

5. Holistic programmes for financial assistance, family bonding, and casework support after release

Clock your steps with us and invite your friends and family to support your walk! For more info, visit https://www.lakeside.org.sg/support-us/4-million-steps/
