PRINCE Court Medical Centre (PCMC) organised a charity treasure hunt that required participants to use only the LRT and MRT as their means of transportation.

The treasure hunt kicked off at PCMC and ended at The Westin Kuala Lumpur with a high tea session and cheque presentation to the beneficiaries.

Teams comprised PCMC’s business partners, members of the media and the public.

PCMC chief executive officer Chong Yee Mun said, “Giving back to the community is at the heart of Prince Court Medical Centre. Not only did we want to create something fun to support a good cause but we also wanted to encourage the community to utilise the wonderful public facilities in our country.”

At the prize-giving ceremony team 2 Sneakies + 2 Innocents (from public participants) clinched first place; second place went to team NTIK from TV3 while Baru Nak Up from Bernama came in third.

In total, 13 teams walked away with prizes and there were 17 lucky draw winners.

One of the beneficiaries was Pusat Jagaan Lotus Malaysia in Semenyih — which is both an orphanage and an old folks’ home.

PCMC is also looking to assist beyond monetary means, such as organising a gotong-royong session to give the centre a fresh coat of paint.

Pusat Jagaan Lotus Malaysia caretaker Sarah Thomas was presented with a cheque after the event.

She was also given sundry items collected along the treasure hunt route.
