The attendees will also be given a tour of the

refurbished Richmond Power Station. In addition, the participants will be offered free blood pressure and blood sugar checks.

The Appreciation Day is part of an ongoing Retiree Appreciation Programme, initiated by VINLEC as a demonstration of the company’s gratitude to the retirees who have contributed to the development of the company.
