SIMA Handicapped Centre hopes to raise at least RM70,000 from its annual Charity Food Fair for its disabled welfare fund. The fair will take place at Chin Ho Plaza in Penang Times Square on Saturday from 10am to 2pm. Jointly organised by Ivorycares, the charitable arm of Ivory Properties Group, and Pan Malaysian Sweeps Sdn Bhd, the event will feature over 40 stalls selling food, souvenirs and household items. Stage performances by recording artiste Jin Chen and the international Cash Band will also be held. The centre’s founder and director William Ch’ng said the money raised would be used to cover the centre’s monthly expenses which come up to around RM15,000. “The centre was set up in 2004 to provide support and training to the handicapped community,” he said at a press conference at the Ivory Tower auditorium in Penang Times Square. “The centre also looks after the severely handicapped. Caretakers can send them here in the morning and pick them up in the evening so they can have some time to do their own things.” Pan Malaysian Sweeps head of northern region Ang Chai Hong said her company and Sima Handicapped Centre had been supporting each other for the past seven years. “This is a part of our Big Sweep Project Angel to uplift needy communities.” State welfare and caring society committee chairman Phee Boon Poh is expected to represent the Chief Minister at the food fair. Coupons are available at RM10 each at Sima Handicapped Centre at 20, Jalan Tunku Kudin or at Big Sweep, 3rd floor, Penang Plaza, Jalan Burma.
