NST team wins treasure hunt
KUANTAN – Bank Islam-Bernama Treasure Hunt 2012 with the media here yesterday was won by the team Close One Eye, from the New Straits Times who walked away with RM4,000.
The team from TV3, Last-Minute Potong Tang Corner, emerged as runner-up to grab the cash prize of RM3,000, while the Hot FM team from radio FM ended up in third place to take home RM2,000.
Bank Islam’s Strategic Planning general manager Hizamuddin Jamaluddin and Bernama deputy editor-in-chief Datuk Zulkefli Salleh gave away the prizes.
Hizamuddin said the programme had forged closer ties between Bank Islam and the media, while participants got the opportunity to contribute to the community.
“The participants carried out activities with residents of two welfare homes — Taman Harapan Temerloh for the blind and Rumah Kebajikan Tengku Ampuan Fatimah in Kuantan.”
During the event, Bank Islam contributed RM5,000 to Rumah Kebajikan Tengku Ampuan Fatimah, while RM3,000 was donated to Taman Harapan Temerloh.
The treasure hunt, which was flagged off from Menara Bank Islam in Kuala Lumpur at 7.45am on Saturday, involved 35 vehicles with 140 participants from media organisations such as Bernama, Radio Televisyen Malaysia, Media Prima, Berita Harian, Harian Metro and Kosmo, among others.
