Meet Mr Tan

You are unlikely to find Mr Tan at home after breakfast. The 74-year-old keeps himself busy, including travelling an hour to Bedok in the east, where he used to live to meet up with old friends. Jovial and quick to offer advice on eating healthily, it is no surprise that Mr Tan is very particular about his diet. He is also a fiercely loyal father and son, making regular visits to see his 99-year-old mother at the hospice and his son, who is in prison.

Here’s how you can help
