Some 80 bags of mangoes were distributed on the evening of 10 July 2018 at N4 Market Courtyard, in the presence of MP Baey Yam Keng.
The distribution served as a pleasant surprise to residents who happened to be around the area. Both young and old made a beeline for the mangoes upon seeing the large “Mango Giveaway” standee being set up.
Each resident not only received a couple of freshly harvested mangoes, but the ‘goodie bag’ also included a Tampidy plush toy as well as a list of creative ideas of things one could do with mangoes!
Both pesticide-free and grown in Tampines, the mangoes go through an intensive and rigorous quality check prior to the distribution – to ensure only the best picks reach the hands of anticipating residents.
Residents are advised not to retrieve the mangoes directly from the trees themselves, in fear they might injure themselves, or damage the trees.
