Singapore UK Association (SUKA) is run by volunteers. Here’s the SUKA committee for 2016/17:

 

President: Sharliza Rahman
Sharliza was elected SUKA President at the 2016 AGM, becoming the first female Malay to pick up the mantle. Having volunteered for SUKA since 2014, she had made use of her extensive professional digital experience to turn around SUKA’s online offering and communications, and spearheaded activities and events to attract new members while making things livelier for current members. She is a regular performer at SUKA events thanks to her musical background. She wrote a song for SG50, ‘Singapore Its Where We Belong‘, which featured SUKA members in the music video. Recently, she was interviewed on Suria Channel about SUKA and its National Day celebrations in London. She is frequently found sending SUKA emails after midnight.

Vice President: Peggy Quek-Aziz
Peggy has been a SUKA member for the past 10 years. She’s very active  and loves going out and meeting people from all over the world.  Currently she is semi retired, having worked for a foreign bank for the past 23 years which was her career highlight. She’s married to an British Egyptian with two grown up girls (Neveen and Nesreen). She is brilliant at organising exciting and interesting events and getting a good deal for shows! Her favourite phrase is “Enjoy – life’s too short!”

Secretary: Anu Balamurali
Having graduated from a ‘Singapore Girl’ to a full time mum, Anu remotely runs a small business in Singapore. She has done a great share to grow the Singapore spirit in the UK and has grown leaps and bounds as events MC. Give her your compliments and share your woes and she’ll be happy to take them forward. Majulah Singapura!
Anu Balamurali - SUKA
Treasurer: Radha Vijya Kumar Nair
Radha came to the UK to do her A levels and degree from 2000-2005 and came back to London after her marriage in 2010 and is settled here with her young daughter and son.  Although she has been here for a while her heart is still in Singapore, yet through SUKA she feels more at home meeting fellow Singaporeans over yummy Singaporean food! She guards SUKA expenses with an iron fist.
