On Sunday, 4 March, a group of enthusiastic alumni volunteers had a networking dim-sum lunch with elderly volunteers in Shamshuipo before visiting the homes of senior citizens living in nearby public housing estates. This meaningful event was organized by the Ho Kin District Community Centre, sponsored by the charitable organisation Sik Sik Yuen and supported by the CUHK Business School BBA Alumni Association.

During the lunch, an appreciation ceremony was held to honour the efforts of elderly volunteers and supporting organisations. Ms. Cindy Cheung, the Centre-in-Charge, presented a certificate of appreciation to Ms. Florence Lai, the Alumni and Corporate Affairs Director, to recognise the Business School’s unwavering support over the years. Another certificate was given to Mr. Raymond Lo, President of the BBA Alumni Association, for his work involving alumni in various community events. Next, alumni and elderly volunteers spent time demonstrating teamwork and collaboration skills in a series of games while enjoying delicious dim sum. 

The highlight of the day came during visits to the homes of elderly citizens in Shamshuipo after lunch. Alumni volunteers were split into groups for a briefing beforehand and each volunteer carried a gift pack with Chinese New Year goodies, including wool gloves and socks, seafood and other necessities. Everyone enjoyed spending time with the elderly locals and presenting them with gifts, and many warm memories were made over the course of the day. 

The Ho Kin District Community Centre was thankful for the support of the BBA Alumni Association. “I am grateful for this opportunity to participate in community service with fellow alumni, who share our common goal of making a better society for all to enjoy,” said Mr. Raymond Lo.

校友全力投入本地社區義務工作
 

3月4日星期日,一群熱心的校友義工與深水埗區的長者義工品嚐點心午餐相聚聯誼,然後一起探訪居住在附近公共屋邨的長者。這項有意義的活動由嗇色園可健耆英地區中心主辦,並由中大商學院本科生校友會全力支持。

午餐期間同場舉行嘉許禮,以嘉許長者義工和支持機構的努力。中心主任張穎瑤女士頒發感謝狀予校友及企業事務辦公室行政主任黎麗文女士,以表揚中大商學院多年來的鼎力支持;她同時頒發感謝狀予中大商學院本科生校友會會長盧偉成先生,感謝他致力凝聚校友參與各類社區活動。其後,校友和長者義工一起參與集體遊戲,展現團隊的合作精神,並大伙兒享用美味點心。

午餐過後才是當天的重點環節 —— 到深水埗區進行長者家居探訪。校友義工事先分組進行簡介,並為長者送上賀年禮物包,當中包括羊毛手套、襪子、海味和其他日用品。除了贈送禮物外,義工們跟長者一起閒話家常,為當天留下許多溫馨回憶。
