The Penang Bar Committee is currently embarking on a fund-raising for the second Bar premises at No.21 Green Hall. To date, RM163,100 has been collected and a further RM54,001 has been pledged and is awaiting collection.

Our target is to raise RM450,000 which will cover the renovation costs and also go towards the furniture and fittings, equipment and facilities for the library.

We therefore hope members will contribute generously as the facilities are being put in place for use by all of you!
