Mrs Catherine Ng

Mrs Catherine Ng was in her family business in the automotive, property and mining industries and worked her way to become the Group Managing Director and Executive Chairman of Mazda Motor Singapore. She is currently a Shareholder and Director of her investment holding company.

Catherine is a Founding Member of the Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) which was established in 1997. She is a generous donor towards the cause and has served as an EXCO member, Fundraising Chairperson and English Support Group Leader.

As a breast cancer survivor, Catherine strongly believes in advocating early detection and helping breast cancer patients overcome the disease. One of the many key initiatives started by Catherine was organising Hospital Visits with a team of volunteers – to visit patients postsurgery at Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Mt Elizabeth Hospital and Changi General Hospital. The visits provide much-needed care, encouragement and hope through the sharing of experiences by the BCF member volunteers.

Together with her late husband, Jackie Ng, they pioneered the BCF Men Support Group which highlighted the important role of men in supporting the women around them who are afflicted by breast cancer, and the emotional support needed for the men themselves. Catherine also paved the way for the establishments of the English, Chinese and Malay Support Groups and installation of the BCF Support Group Credo in 2000. These Support Groups are now successfully auto-managed by the team of capable volunteers and coordinators.

For more than 2 decades, Catherine has served wholeheartedly and unconditionally in BCF as well as other charitable causes, especially towards the field of Education. For instance, to date, Catherine serves in the School Management Committee of Nanyang Junior College and Chung Cheng High School; provides financial sponsorships for NUS-Yales students under the “Jackie & Catherine Ng Academy Study Award” as well as the NUH Breast Cancer Research Centre. She has spearheaded and organized countless fundraising events and activities.

Catherine is well respected for her contributions to charitable causes and continues to be an inspiration and positive influence to people around her.

Her involvement with BCF spans nearly 20 years during which she introduced many programmes to BCF. In 2010, she introduced Zumba as part of the Healing Through The Arts (HTTA) programme, and subsequently introduced the sport to the Children’s Cancer Foundation.

Linda is passionate in creating awareness that cancer survivors can enjoy rigorous exercise like everyone else. Together with like-minded volunteers, she helped to raise fund for BCF by organizing Zumba events in many places like MBS, Republic Polytechnic, Suntec City & Resort World Sentosa.

For the past 12 years, Linda also encouraged BCF to participate in ICAP Singapore Pte Ltd’s (a securities and brokerage firm) charity day. To date, ICAP has remained a strong supporter of BCF.

She is particularly supportive during the Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM). She plays a key role in helping to organize and coordinate voluntary groups to distribute and collect Pink Ribbon Donation pins and boxes all over Singapore.

For years, she is also depended upon in sourcing for gifts and sponsors for BCF events and helped to gather manpower to pack and distribute items for these events.

Closer to her heart, Linda volunteers regularly as a BCF Befriender and helps in Telephone Counselling of breast cancer survivors.

Apart from helping at BCF, Linda also volunteers at the Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) in its “Look Good Feel Better” program where cancer survivors are coached in make-up and personal grooming techniques.
