We are pleased to announce that, with your generous support, we managed to raise a grand total of $18,233.60 over the course of the charity lunches on 23 and 24 November 2013. This amount is inclusive of the restaurant’s gross sales proceeds on those days as well as donations made by customers in the form of tips.
We will be issuing a cheque to the Singapore Red Cross Society and presenting the same to them tomorrow, 29 November 2013. These monies will go towards the Red Cross’ relief efforts for and on behalf of the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.
Thank you once again for your generous support, without which we could not have accomplished this.

Again, thanks to all of you, without whom the events would not have been such a raging success.
The New Ubin Seafood Team
Scenes from the charity lunches on 23 – 24 November 2013:
On 7 Nov 2013, Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) made landfall in Guinan, Eastern Samar,Philippines. With wind-speeds of up to 315km/h, the Cat 5 Typhoon is possible the most powerful tropical storm in recorded history. After making landfall, the storm tore through the rest of the neighboring provinces and islands, destroying everything in its path. As communication lines and cables have been destroyed, official death tolls are slow to come in, but an estimated 10,000 are dead in Tacloban alone.
Even in a nation regularly hit by earthquakes, volcano eruptions and storms, Typhoon Haiyan is turning out to be one of the most deadly storms on record. To aid the victims, Ubin Seafood is organizing two fundraiser lunches on 23 and 24 of November 2013 respectively.
The restaurant will be absorbing all the operating and seafood costs of the events, and 100% of revenue will be donated to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, via the Red Cross.
Please find below key information concerning the two events. We look forward to seeing you on the 23rd or 24th and we thank you in advance for your generous support. As our restaurant seating capacity is limited, we would be grateful if you could make a booking via our main line - +65 6466 9558 – if you wish to attend either or both these events. If you require further information or clarification on the above, please do not hesitate to contact us.
