Hello Singapore Gooners,

Anyone experiencing cabin fever yet? I hope you and your families are well, safe and healthy. Latest news from UK is EPL football can only be resumed after 1st June. Let’s see if lives or money is more important to the decision makers, eh?

If you haven’t watched it yet, AFC released 2 new videos. I’ve watched them both and truly loved them.

Dennis Bergkamp:

Two quick updates for you.

1. Children’s Aid Society
As our members know, our adopted charity is Children’s Aid Society. During this challenging COVID-19 pandemic, they are facing a difficult financial year with donations on a significant decline. We hope to appeal to the generosity of our Arsenal Singapore community to donate if you can. The donations would greatly help them to tide through this trying period and signify support for their residents and families.

They are trying to raise $100,000 within the next 4 months. As of today, they have only raised $26K. With a donation of $10 & above, you’ll be entitled to a 250% tax deduction.

2. Closure of Modesto’s Restaurant
Modesto’s Elizabeth has closed down for good after 17 years. And this morning news came in by end June, Modesto’s Orchard outlet will also shut its doors for good after 23 years.

Here is the message from Ashok, owner of Modesto’s.

“If you have enjoyed our food and service through the years, please enjoy our offerings at least one more time for a good cause. Thank you very much”.

He also launched a mini-fundraising campaign, setting aside 40% of takeaway sales proceeds to help former employees who are in between jobs.

Please call 62357808 to place your orders. View the menu at

Modesto’s Orchard Rendezvous Hotel is located at 1 Tanglin Road #01-09 Singapore 247905. Food pick-up/takeaway is available at this location only.

I know some Gooners have already enjoyed their delicious food in the past 2 weeks. You guys are just awesome and generous!!
Give anything that you can for both causes above, Gooners.

Thank you and please stay safe.
