'We're carrying on her legacy'

'We're carrying on her legacy'

She died during a trekking trip in Tibet two years ago.

But today, Ms Alice Sim remains very much a part of her friends' lives.

Ms Sim is described as a woman who always gave back to the community and helped the less fortunate and her closest friends are continuing her legacy.

For 13 years before her death, she organised annual charity drives that distributed welfare packages to senior citizens and the needy.

It became an annual tradition for the close-knit group of about 15, who fund the initiative out of their own pockets.

But in May 2012, Ms Sim, 61, died after developing altitude sickness during a trekking incident in Tibet.

Her close friend Madam Jenny Tan, 47, is determined to carry on what Ms Sim started.

Yesterday, Madam Tan and her friends, who now work under the banner "Alice Sim & Friends", continued their annual charity food drive at Woodlands Galaxy Community Club, where they handed out about 2,000 welfare packages.

Each pack included a bag of rice, biscuits, cooking oil, instant noodles and toiletries.
