Event Date: 18 Nov 2017 (Saturday)
Time: 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Location: Podium of Hing Wah Estate II, Chai Wan

On Saturday, 18 November 2017, more than 80 participants including Outreach Ambassadors and the elders we had visited attended the event titled "老友記外展大使嘉許禮 暨 鄰里支援我做到" at the Podium of Hing Wah Estate II, celebrating Senior Citizens Day in advance. In the award presentation ceremony, 47 Outreach Ambassadors who participated in the volunteer programme actively in the past year were recognised.

In addition, the participants were divided into 12 groups and engaged in an activity titled "社區人情味 拼出鄰里情". Each group was assigned a task to coloring a picture on various neighbourhood interactions and writing their feelings about the volunteer programme on a greeting card. Their finished artworks were then pieced together to promote the theme of the event namely "望多眼,問句好,獨居長者幫得到,鄰里支援我做到!". After that, an "Elderly Care Hotlines" card was distributed to the elderly participants. The participants also had tea gathering together and spent the afternoon with full of warmth.

The next home visit will be held on Saturday, 9 December. Welcome to join us! (Tel: 2861 1909)
