“To care for our community, Ngong Ping 360 is devoted to organise and to participate in a variety of community services and events such as signature fundraising CSR event, tree planting day, DIY natural soap and wellness workshops, and regular visits and activities for the elderly and children.”
Collaborated with Tung Chung Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council, 360 Sharing Ambassador invited children from low-income families to enjoy the cable car ride and introduced them Ngong Ping 360 and Ngong Ping’s natural culture. The children also participated in the glass painting workshop after the tour.
Blindfold Cable Car Challenge was successfully held on 13 January, which attracted nearly 1,000 participants. The event raised HK$428,000 for The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs Association in support of its mental health services for the children and adolescents.
Apart from running barefoot up to the Big Buddha stairs and the blindfolded tasks inside cable car, the participants also need to finish the 4km or 6km races as soon as possible.
Celine Tam, who voluntarily composed and sang the event theme song, attended the award ceremony as a special guest to perform the song on stage.
To give back to the Tung Chung community, 360 Sharing Ambassador reunited with a group of seniors who witness the growth of Ngong Ping 360 in Tung Chung to enjoy a Poon Choi Feast at Yat Tung Estate on 14 February. The Sharing Ambassadors not only played games with the seniors, but also distributed lucky bags and Valentine's Day exclusive carnation to them, filling the piazza with a joyful ambience.
On 11 March, 360 Sharing Ambassador team watched English drama “Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde” organised by The Absolutely Fabulous Theatre Connection (AFTEC) with students from YMCA of Hong Kong Christian College in Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre Theatre.
Teacher described the event as a valuable opportunity for the low-income students to watch an English drama starred by professional actors. 360 Sharing Ambassador team was so happy to have arranged this event!
On 9 Aug, 360 Sharing Ambassador participated in the Jockey Club YouChallenge Programme, organised by the Society of Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention. A group of disadvantaged young people were invited by us to join the DIY 360 workshop at Ngong Ping Village, crafting their own 3D photo frame for Tung Chung’s children from low-income family.
By understanding and communicating with them, we hope to show our support and care to the disadvantaged youth.
