High tea, served at Bella Vista - one of restaurants on Star Virgo, was a good time of fellowship. Deutsche Bank volunteers showered warmth and kindness to the elderly, who reciprocated with big smiles, nods, hand squeezes and big "thank you"s. There were plenty of laughter and smiles all around. Among the beneficiaries was an elderly couple who celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary earlier in the week; the tour made their anniversary a lot more meaningful.
Apart from Deutsche Bank volunteers, Star Cruise crew members, the team from St. Luke’s Eldercare and a handful of students from Singapore Polytechnic provided assistance throughout the event. The students volunteered regularly with St. Luke’s. They constantly looked out for their elderly, filling in the gaps and guiding the Deutsche Bank team where required.
