The joy of giving, January 18

18 Jan 2014

It seems there are no limits when it comes to corporate souls and community groups and their dedication to raising funds for charity. Whether it involves donning ridiculous hats and outfits, throwing themselves unceremoniously into all manner of physical pursuits or testing their limited kitchen skills, hundreds turned out to add fun and funds to Operation Santa Claus. And a fine effort is was. All the mad-cap antics of the SCMP-RTHK project, which wrapped up yesterday, ended up raising a record-breaking HK$21million this year. The funds hopefully will make life a bit easier for 18 of the city’s charities.
