Charity Fund Raising Dinner

On Friday 4th March 2016, 110 guests packed the function room at the HK Cricket Club for the LCHK Oscars, dressed to the nines and ready to enjoy an evening of entertainment, dining and of course fund raising.

We were treated to a fabulous evening and the comedy entertainment provided by “Chunky Onion” Productions was a big hit.  Quite to our delight (and surprise!) there was no shortage of guests willing to volunteer and take part!  Highlights included my husband helping move “the body”, Becca’s Lie Detector test and the very risque discussion about the possible murder weapon – not forgetting the whole room leaping onto their feet to perform the pony dance. Priceless.

Naturally the biggest highlight really is the amount of money raised and what the money will enable us to fund.  By the end of the evening we thought we may have raised just under $50,000 – smashing our expectations.  But with a final flurry of donations as guests showed their appreciation for a fantastic evening we have raised:$61,000

This will be enough for 104 children, carers, transportation to HK Disneyland for them to take part in the Disney Y.E.S (Youth Education Service) Program – a 2-3 hour educational program – and to spend the rest of the day enjoying the theme park.

March meeting

Last Thursday 5th March was our 3rd meeting of 2015. We had lots of ‘business’ to get through before our guest speaker, Charlotte Douglas, educated us on a few basics of using homeopathy as treatments over traditional methods.

Musetta sold raffle tickets and we raised $2020 to go towards our Small Group Homes target for 2014/2015.

Exclusive, hot off the press news, was the announcement of the 3rd Ladies Circle Hong Kong Quiz Night on Monday 18th May at The Globe. Volunteers will be required to help source raffle prizes and the organising of the evening.

Voting took place on 2 requests for funding, one for Watchdog and one for LoveExpress – both had a unanimous ‘for’ vote, so cheques will be winging their way to them very soon,

We welcomed 2 new Members, Kristy and Marina, who have both attended 2 or more Ladies Circle functions/meetings.

The next meeting will be held on 16th April 2015, with our guest speaker being Denby Tams, who is a Health Coach.


Welcome to our new Membership Coordinator

We welcome our new Membership Coordinator, Emma Ross, to the Ladies Circle Hong Kong Council.

Emma will be sending out the new member packs, liaising with guests and prospective members and monitoring member stats with immediate effect.  Emma has bags of enthusiasm and is a really great asset to our team.


February Dinner Meeting

We had a great meeting last night with many Members and guests coming along to hear the wonderful charity news from Barbabus and see where our donations have been put to very good use, namely the replacement of 2 very old doors and also the pot stands where the residents are growing many flowers, herbs and plants.

Also, we had the local historian, writer, lecturer and conductor of many walks in Hong Kong, Macau and Canton, Jason Wordie.  Jason amazed us with some very interesting facts on Macau last night, including the meanings of some of the surnames of families, the reasons behind some of the different colour paintwork you see around Macau among many other things. He also offered the chance for us to buy, and have him sign, his book titled  Macau, People and Places, Past and Present. 

We had two guests join Ladies Circle Hong Kong last night too – so we welcome Becca and Jung min, we hope to see you at many social and fundraising events in the future, and hope you enjoy what we have to offer here at LCHK!

LCHK visit to Small Group Homes

Laura, Karla, Sharon, Diane, Rachel, Musetta and Mary visited Small Group Homes last weekend.   It was a very enjoyable and rewarding trip to another SGH.
We made CNY decorations and rice dumplings with the children and they entertained us with magic, singing and dancing performances.
All in all a lovely visit, six children present ranging in age from 8 – 17.
This picture was taken at the station on our way home, we are holding our home made CNY decorations and a lovely home made Thank You card.

LCHK visit to Barnabus

Jill, Laura, Fiona and Bev visited Barnabus Charitable Services Association on Friday 23rd January.
We had a lovely hot drink, with homegrown lemongrass which was delicious.  We toured the facility and were shown the work that had been done with our donation
– pictures showing Fiona in front of renewed door, and plants on plant shelf, and Laura and Bev with bunches of the lemongrass.
The girls made a presentation which they had done entirely by themselves which had obviously taken a great deal of time and effort.
One of the girls played various pieces of music on the piano which we had to guess, and she had only been playing for a year, it was astounding how good she was, we also witnessed a maths class and we saw them participating in a boxacise.
After a delicious lunch all together we had a short walk and then back to the ferry.
This was a very meaningful and worthwhile visit to one of our charities we have supported and we look forward to welcoming them at our February meeting.

LoveIt Social

What a great night we had at LoveIt on Thursday!

12 of us took part in Style Games – a non-stop 2 hour event during which we gleaned a lot of useful information about our body shape and how to dress to flatter it, drank a lot of champagne, and created some fabulous looks for each other.

Well done to Claire who was the worthy winner of the silent vote for the best look, and many thanks to the girls at Loveit for hosting us, and giving a very generous $1000 voucher to spend on clothes at the shop to our winner!
