Big bikers team up with food outlet to treat old folks
KUCHING: Besides a high-powered motorcycle and a leather jacket, a big heart is needed to ride with big bikers of Kuching as they are big on charity.
These bike owners teamed up with Sugarbun recently in a community project to treat 86 senior citizens and 29 staff members of Rumah Seri Kenangan here.
The residents were treated to a Sugarbun meal and entertained to a lion dance in conjunction with the Chinese New Year.
The Kuching Big Bikers Club headed by Kamil Misuari gave out ang pows to the residents as a gesture of sharing and goodwill.
“We wanted to do something for Rumah Seri Kenangan as we felt it was a home that many tended to overlook,” said Kamil.
He said the club had mapped out a list of activities involving charity work for the year.
After Chinese New Year, we plan a charity biking expedition, he added.
Sugarbun marketing manager Clara Chan said she hoped the gesture would bring cheer to the old folks.
