Bibby Asia team recently spent their free time with a lovely group of elderly people from a care centre in Hong Kong as part of the Giving Something Back programme. The centre offers day care to the elderly who live nearby, providing meals, health care support, counselling services, as well as various activities to keep them engaged and entertained.
On 3 Nov 2018, colleagues gave up a Saturday to visit this centre, which is run by the Christian Service Family Centre
, and sang beautifully for them with some good old songs. The team then enjoyed doing some exercise with the group before heading over to a traditional Cantonese restaurant nearby to "yum cha" - Chinese tea time. After this there was time for some games and a chance to happily chat with them. The day ended with a lucky draw and everyone went home with a goody bag and a big smile on their face.
Jackey Chu, Managing Director of Bibby Financial Services (Asia) Ltd says, "Big thanks to Christian Service Family Centre for arranging the volunteer activity. This let us have the chance to meet the elderly and understand their lives. We are very impressed by the energetic lives they have and we all enjoyed spending the time with them singing songs and having tea. Although it was just a simple tea gathering, we had a great and meaningful time!"
