Mr. Subramaniam Apparow, Senior Manager, Property Division, PPB Group Berhad said, "Christmas is not just about giving to others, but also caring for them as well. The Toy Bank initiative has become a continued tradition for Cheras LeisureMall, and this initiative has shown us that there are so many kind members of the public within our neighborhood who truly care for others." He added that the support of these good Samaritans is what drives the growth of this community initiative. He thanked all the Cheras LeisureMall patrons. He also thanked their tenants, ChicKing & UniqTee for contributing 10% and 5% respectively of their gross sales towards the Toy Bank initiative.

About 200 children were treated for a special screening of the movie 'Mary Poppins Returns' by Golden Screen Cinemas followed by delicious lunch at ChiKing. Besides this, there was also ChiKing mascot & Santa Clause appearance, face painting activities, a magic show and balloon sculpture by a clown magician and also cotton candy and lollipops given to the children. It was indeed a happy and unforgettable day for these children.
