Our regular monthly charity lunch for our elderly is bigger during the major Chinese festivals. This time, around 100 elderly enjoyed our hospitality.

 

Together with the Overseas Chinese Association, the event was a huge success with elders playing games and listening to New Year songs. President Tom Li began with traditional Chinese New Year greetings; I followed by asking the elders what they wanted the organisation to do to improve their lives.

Our charity luncheon was an idea I had whilst visiting Connaught Garden care home back in 2006 when I saw how lonely the elders were. I approached Wendy Choi about what we can do to address this.

Since then, we have given over 10000 meals and an opportunity for them to enjoy our monthly hospitality. Happy Chinese New Year!
