GAMES, quizzes, gifts, live music and an exhibition will feature at Sai Kung's Beach Resort Hotel this Christmas - all for deprived children in Hong Kong and China. The hotel, part of BIC Hotel Management which is involved in building schools in China through its education foundation, is helping Operation Santa Claus for the second time. A special Christmas party will be held at the hotel on Christmas Eve, with an Australian band, Squid, and other young musicians performing. Irving Pun, BIC's business development and administration consultant, said: 'We always try our best in helping to provide more education possibilities for children on the mainland. 'We will have a display of pictures and information about Sowers Action to let the public understand more about education in China.' Sowers Action, a Hong Kong-based agency which aims to rebuild crumbling schools in China, and Youth Outreach, which helps young runaways, will be helped through the joint charity drive by the South China Morning Post and RTHK Radio 3. Mr Pun said donation boxes would be set up in the hotel's Beach Pub, BBQ Paradise, Beach Cafe and Pattaya Seafood Market Terrace. Also on Sunday, Santa Claus will ride the Hong Kong Tramways open-topped antique tram from Western Market to North Point for the campaign. Each passenger can pay $2 or more for a ride and meet Father Christmas, who will give out sweets to young passengers. Hong Kong Tramways has pledged to donate all fares from the special tram in December to Operation Santa Claus. Yesterday, the charity drive was also given a boost from a business group and schools. Jardines presented a $10,000 cheque through the Hong Kong Tourist Association, while St Rose of Lima's School raised $12,720 during its Operation Santa Week early this month. Snacks were sold during breaks and donation boxes were set up. Teacher Vijay Nair said: 'The response from the student body was overwhelming. The collection work was done by our Form Seven arts students, who were the organisers of the event.' Sears Rodgers School raised $8,420 and Sha Tin Junior School collected $6,155 at its annual Christmas performance day. Donors who send cheques of between $500 and $1,000 - with name and address on the back - to Operation Santa Claus still have a chance to win a return United Airlines Connoisseur Class ticket to New York.
