Kelab Bakti Gunung Keledang, an Ipoh based charity club famed for its community services programmes has set its sight on helping the state government promote the much publicised Visit Perak Year (VPY) 2012. The club's new president, Dato' Hj Megat Ahmad Shahrani bin Hj Megat Shahrudin said this in his accepting speech after his installation ceremony at the Installation Nite at The Crystal Ballroom, Impiana Hotel recently.

Megat felt that the beautiful serene Royal Belum national Park in Upper Perak and a clean Ipoh City would be the key to the success of VPY campaign.

"Promoting Royal Belum and keeping Ipoh city clean and tidy will be the objective club members will be pursuing in ensuring VPY a success" he added.

The club will need to work closely with Ipoh City Council to achieve the objective.

"Ipoh used to be famous for its cleanliness. The best way to bring back the glory is to garner its city dwellers support to complement the city council's effort to clean up the city through' gotong royong' programmes involving the club's members and families. Our club might be small but we can mobilise our networkings" he reiterated.

Incidentally, this so called 'Malay elite' club of 67 members is the who's who in Perak boasting the immediate past and the present Menteri Besar of Perak among its membership.

Prior to the installation ceremony, Dato' Mohd Razali Khalid, the outgoing president in his farewell speech mentioned that the club's special project for the year was the establishment of two welfare homes, Pusat jagaan Rumah Ihsan and Rumah Anak-anak Yatim Darussalam constructed on a piece of land donated by a senior member were completed and ready for occupation in 2012.

He was very appreciative of the contributions made by various corporate bodies, club members as well as private donors across the country.

DYTM Raja Muda who is the Club Patron, Raja Dr Nazrin Shah and his consort, DYTM Raja Puan Besar, Tuanku Zara Salim were the royal guests of honour at the installation dinner.

The function which started at 8.30 pm ended at 11.40 pm.
