SINGAPORE– David Beckham is back in Singapore, as he conducted a football clinic today with athletes from SportCares Singapore, Special Olympics, Deaf Sports Association (Singapore) and Bedok Youth Society for the Disabled.
He later made an appearance at Marina Bay Sands to take part in a charity auction, where he put up a signed pair of boots for bidding. The auction is part of the annual Sands for Singapore Festival to be held from August 1 to 3.
Starting the event with an inspirational video about his journey as a successful footballer, Beckham also addressed the audience with a motivational talk on the importance of team work and passion.
Beckham presented and signed a pair of boots as the final auction item for ‘Celebrities Give Back to Singapore’ auction to be held from today till August 1.
The boots were added to the list of auction items alongside his wife Victoria Beckham’s earlier contribution of three hand-picked items from her clothing line collections.
"We are honoured to have the support of David Beckham for our annual Sands for Singapore festival once again. We appreciate that he remains so involved, as he continues to participate in our ongoing initiatives for the young athletes and charities. Last year’s inaugural Sands for Singapore Festival helped raise over $3.6 million and we hope to do even better this year.
The Sands for Singapore Festival is part of our year-long list of activities dedicated to reaching out to the Singaporean community and we are grateful for these opportunities to further develop our long-term relationships with our partners," said Mr. George Tanasijevich, President and Chief Executive Officer of Marina Bay Sands.
