Ti said, “We have carried out a number of events over the years which have been about giving back to the society. Among them is the annual Baiduri Masters Charity Golf Tournament where proceeds raised were donated to organisations that support the differently-abled and, more recently, our COVID-19 relief programme where we donated groceries to medical frontliners in Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) and Pengiran Muda Mahkota Pengiran Muda Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah hospitals as well as personal protective equipment (PPE) to the Ministry of Health.”

The event concluded with an Iftar at Tarindak D’Seni for the families, members of the media and volunteers from Baiduri Bank and its subsidiaries.
