Earlier this year Paul Wakefield, Team Leader of our Oil & Gas Contract Practice in Singapore was selected to be an AugustMan A-lister.
Apart from attending glamorous photo-shoots and getting to wear tasteful peach blazers, there is a serious side to this exciting campaign. The A-Listers campaign supports CARE Singapore, a charity dedicated to getting youngsters back on track and helping to give them a better future. Each A-Lister is set a single challenge: to achieve a personal goal that they have set for themselves within five weeks. Their friends, colleagues and other supporters are encouraged to donate along the way and at the end of the campaign, the A-Lister that has raised the most will be named ‘Best Performing A-Lister’.
Paul has been working with a group of these kids teaching them to build and race bikes and tomorrow, Saturday 2nd August, he will be setting off at the crack of dawn to ride 180 km around Singapore to raise funds for the charity. A tough challenge made harder on a broken ankle!
