Face to Face with their Royal Highnesses

Today a group of five representatives from PBSNS was granted a rare audience with the Yang Di Pertuan Besar and the Tunku Ampuan Besar of Negeri Sembilan who wish to know more of the work of the association. I count this a unique privilege because their royal highnesses made time to come to the Istana Hinggap and spent nearly 90 minutes with us, hearing us, asking questions, examining works by the trainees and having afternoon tea with us.

The objective of the audience was also to seek their royal consent to be patrons of a charity golf tournament to raise funds for our building fund project. It was initiated by a God-sent volunteer who believed in our work and is prepared to use her experience, network and fund raising skills to support us. It appear that her coming into our team of volunteers was meant to further encourage our work and we believe the coming years will be exciting and productive.

I dare not anticipate how much money will be raised but certainly having both the Yam tuan and her royal highness at the forefront lending their support we expect a very good response from the golfing enthusiasts in Negeri Sembilan and the Klang Valley. An organising committee is being formed and soon invitations will be sent out.
