SJM Theodore Racing by Prema joined title sponsor Sociedade de Jogos de Macau, S.A. (“SJM”) on visits to several local community projects amidst their busy schedule preparing for the 63rd Macau F3 Grand Prix.
The team visited the SJM Excellence Staff Centre, a supermarket exclusively for the staff of SJM, on Tuesday morning. Each driver partnered with one SJM employee for the game “SJM Theodore Racing Heroes do Supermarket Sweep”. These three staff members are also members of Macau Special Olympics. They successfully completed an internship programme offered by SJM, through which they acquired new working skills and learnt how to improve communication with other people. The SJM Theodore Racing drivers steered the trolleys, and aided their partners in fulfilling the shopping mission. In the end, Felix Rosenqvist’s team won the game. Each staff player received a shopping coupon and a set of SJM Theodore Racing souvenirs from Managing Director and Chief Administrative Officer Ms. Angela Leong.
The following afternoon, the SJM Theodore Racing drivers visited the Kam Pek Community Centre and spent quality time with over 70 members of the Macau Association of the Hearing Impaired and of Macau Special Olympics at the “Hi! My Racing Heroes!” charity event. Organised by the SJM Volunteer Team, the drivers dedication and determination to succeed aimed to inspire the children as well as bring laughter to the members by playing games together. The charity event was attended by the Vice Director of the SJM Volunteer Team Mr. Arnaldo Ho and members from the volunteer team and cheerleading team of SJM.
Ms. Angela Leong remarked, “SJM, with its roots in Macau, is a consistent supporter of the Macau Grand Prix and other locally developed signature events. The collaboration between SJM and Theodore Racing not only fulfils the mission on promoting motorsports, but also on spreading love and warmth to the community.”
Mr. Teddy Yip commented, “We have had a wonderful time with the members of the Association of the Hearing Impaired and Macau Special Olympics. I can still see their smiling faces now and it is an honour to be able to give something back to the local community. Our appreciation also goes to SJM and their volunteer team, whose long-term support to society, especially to the underprivileged, is a real credit to their organization.”
