Habitat-Barclays Bare Your Sole 2011 will take place on Saturday, 18 June at Gardens by the Bay East, Tanjong Rhu.

The venue will offer a picturesque setting for the walk, which will take place over 2.5 and 4 kilometre distances. Building on the success of previous years’ events, the organisers hope to attract more than 5,000 pairs of bare feet for the 9.00am start.

Participants in the barefoot walk will help raise funds for local and overseas beneficiaries. The event will also assist in raising awareness for Habitat for Humanity projects that build homes and fight poverty for the less fortunate.

“Habitat-Barclays Bare Your Sole 2011 is shaping up as a fantastic event and we’re looking forward to seeing a large number of people put their bare feet behind such a worthwhile cause on 18 June,” said Yong Teck Meng, National Director, Habitat for Humanity Singapore.

“Not only does the event help to raise the profile of Habitat for Humanity Singapore but the funds raised allow our volunteers to continue their wonderful work in helping the less fortunate both in Singapore and across the Asia Pacific region,” he added.

Barclays has agreed to support the event again in 2011 as title sponsor. This is a further extension of their global partnership with Habitat for Humanity and builds on three years of productive relationship between the firm and the charity.

“Barclays has been involved with Habitat for Humanity on a global scale since 2008 and we’re delighted to continue this unique partnership through the 2011 Habitat-Barclays Bare Your Sole charity walk,” said Suan Kiat Quek , Country Manager for Barclays in Singapore.

“A number of our employees have taken part in Habitat for Humanity projects around the region and they have all been truly rewarding experiences. This year’s Habitat-Barclays Bare Your Sole walk will certainly be no different and we look forward to a great turn-out for the barefoot walk both from within Barclays, from the many other organisations which have already signed up in support and from the public at-large.”

Online registration for Habitat-Barclays Bare Your Sole 2011 is on www.bareyoursole.org.sg, alongside all other necessary information on Habitat for Humanity Singapore and the event itself on 18 June. The event website also allows participants to raise their own additional funds through the GIVE.sg platform, while a number of charity auction items will go live on the site in coming weeks.
