BIBD 3rd Invitational Charity Netball Tournament 2010

Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam Berhad (BIBD) netball team emerged as the champion in the BIBD invitational netball tournament with government agencies and private organisations held at the headquarters of the Royal Brunei Police Force Stadium in Gadong yesterday.

Team BIBD defeated BSP 11-10 in the final to capture the title. Third place was grabbed by TAP. However, the biggest winner of the day were three local charities. BIBD has presented mock cheques totaling donations of B$6,942 to SMARTER, Learning Ladders Society and KACA, which received $2,314 each.

The donations were collected from the tournament's registration fees and proceeds from charity events organised by BIBD in 2009. Every dollar raised from the public during the charity events were matched by the bank.

Organised by Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam Berhad (BIBD) under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), 120 participants from several organisations as well as BIBD's CSR committee members were at the event.

The participating organisations were BIBD, Takaful BIBD, Takaful IBB, HSBC, Standard Chartered Bank (SCB), Tabung Amanah Islam Brunei (TAIB), Tabung Amanah Pekerja (TAP), Yayasan SHHB, Brunei Shell Petroleum (BSP), Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MOFAT), JAPEM and DST.

The tournament kicked off with an official opening by BIBD's Chief Financial Officer Hajah Noraini binti Haji Sulaiman. The annual BIBD Invitational Charity Netball Tournament aimed to foster close relationships with other organisations through sports and encourage women to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
