Frequently Asked Questions
What is the EtonHouse Charity Walk?
The EtonHouse Community Fund is organising a family walk and fun fair on the 11th of November 2017 to being together the entire community of parents, staff, alumni from the EtonHouse, E-Bridge, Middleton and Hampton schools. Expected to attract 2000 families, we hope that the event will generate a momentum around philanthropy in our schools. Proceeds from the event will be channelled towards charities that support underprivileged children through education. The walk will donate $50,000 to the ECDA KidSTART project and $50,000 to the Bishan North CCC Community Development and Welfare Fund.
