Community Engagement and Energy Conservation Never Smelt So Yummy!
On 14 February 2019, Tune Protect collaborated with the Truly Loving Company (TLC) to sponsor the Bake with Dignity (BWD), a bakery that employs bakers with learning disabilities such as Autism, Down Syndrome and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Employment at the bakery provides their bakers with a great sense of dignity and self-worth because they are given the opportunity to learn new skills and earn an income applying the skills learnt. BWD has a mouth-watering range of cakes, brownies, fudge, crumbles, cookies, pies, just to name a few.
Tune Protect sponsored the purchase and installation of 2 energy efficient air-conditioners to help reduced BWD’s utility bills and its carbon footprint. The lowered utility bills would contribute to lower operational costs, in addition to providing a cooler reception area and other areas as well. The funds sponsored were mainly from the proceeds of the Pre-Loved Charity Bazaar that Tune Protect organized.

After pie making and cupcake frosting sessions, the get-together continued with a “Vegetarian Yee Sang Toss” to wish all in the bakery good health, prosperity, longevity and happiness. The sponsorship event ended on a high note when all the BWD bakers were presented with the Tune Protect Annual EasyCare Personal Accident Coverage specially sponsored by Tune Protect. Each baker was presented with a Certificate to commemorate the first personal accident coverage they received in their lives.

Tune Protect is thankful for the opportunity to contribute to the well-being of the BWD bakers with this climate action initiative in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals No. 3 & 11 promoting Well Being and Climate Action. Tune Protect continues to extend our support for BWD by catering for internal events and festive gifts.
