Our Patron & Board

SHINE welcomed its first Patron, Speaker of Parliament, on 17 March 2018.

Mr Tan was first introduced to SHINE through Kits for Kids in 2014 to help raise funds for the organisation. Since then, he has continually partnered SHINE on fundraising, and has come to know the organisation well. He strongly supports SHINE’s work and seeks to raise awareness of the cause. He would like to encourage more people to come forward and volunteer as this will extend the reach of the work done, and will enable SHINE to do even more for the children and youth it serves.
