Emotional journey for Jhala family

Posted on 18 August 2016  - 06:00

You may recall the tragic story of Sonia Jhala, the young Singapore Spurs member who lost her life in an earthquake during a school trip to Mount Kinabalu in Malaysia last June.


Her family, including parents Jaidip and Karen, made their first ever visit to the Lane in her memory for the first home game of last season against Stoke – a story that captured the imagination of fellow fans across the world.

One year on and the Jhalas have taken another emotional step by joining survivors and members of other families to have lost loved ones to the earthquake on an emotional trek of the mountain.

Channel 5 in Singapore documented the journey and the episode can be viewed in the player below...
