SANDAKAN: KTS Trading celebrated its 50th anniversary at Yu Yuan Secondary School here yesterday by organising a car wash to raise funds for the school.
The car wash aimed to sell 1,000 coupons worth RM25 each to raise RM25,000 for school fund and KTS will be adding RM50,000 to Yu Yuan, which is a private school.
If Yu Yuan succeeded in selling 1,000 coupons, it would get a total of RM75,000.
Yu Yuan students were involved in the car wash project.
Coupon buyers will not only have their car washed, but will be participating in a lucky draw, offering prizes from Daddy Mee and Stihl hardware. Lucky draw winners will be announced yesterday.
Deputy Minister of the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Liew Vui Keong, who officiated at the event, congratulated KTS Group on its 50th anniversary.
He also applauded KTS’ allocation to private schools as a meaningful activity and exemplified it as a “spirit of giving back to the community”.
Liew said a cheque for RM1 million, promised by the Prime Minister in April, had been officially received by Yu Yuan.
Meanwhile, Sabah Dong Zong president Andrew Liew Sui Fatt said allocations for private schools were mostly given through donations.
He added that in the past 20 years, private schools faced economic issues but the community has always been supportive of the schools.
Andrew said, as of today, the economic issues faced by private schools have been resolved.
