Travelport gathers travel industry for Inspiring Treasure Hunt for Charity – Singapore

November 4, 2013 Photo Gallery No Comments Email Email

On Saturday, 26th of October, following ITB Asia, Travelport invited travel agents, airline partners and their families and friends to participate in an Inspiring Treasure Hunt through the streets of Singapore to raise funds for the Metta Welfare Association, a charity organization that provides quality health care and welfare services to those in need.  

Over 160 people woke up bright and early on Saturday morning to take part in a fun-filled half day out, including Travelport customers and partners from Carlson Wagonlit Travel, American Express, FCm Travel, Instone Singapore, HRG, and Serangoon Air. Teams were comprised of six members, and were challenged to answer cryptic questions, solve puzzles and take part in a supermarket challenge to purchase supplies for the charity.

The successful event raised approximately $4,000 (SGD) in donations and groceries for low income families.

Travelport’s Vice President & Regional Managing Director-Asia Pacific, Patrick Andres, who took part in the event, said, “We were inspired to host the event in Singapore following the success of a similar event we hosted in Kuala Lumpur in August. We received such an enthusiastic response from our Singapore partners and colleagues, and had a lot of fun, all for a wonderful cause. Travelport is proud to bring the travel industry together to support local communities such as the Metta Welfare Association.”
