A round of applause for Dickson Poon. The philanthropist and owner of Harvey Nichols was recently awarded an honorary fellowship of King's College London for his passionate contribution to charity work.

The tycoon donated £20 million (HK$258 million) in 2012 to King's School of Law - one of the biggest donations from an individual in the college's history. The fund will support a scholarship programme in which 15 places will be reserved for students from Hong Kong and the mainland.
