A student project at City University has drawn attention to the plight of children suffering from cancer. Four students from the Higher Diploma in English for Professional Communication course teamed up with the Children's Cancer Foundation. Candy Leung Man-yuet, Dicky Lai Chi-chung, Emmy Lam Chi-yin and Winnie Yu Wing-yan put together a programme of events, including a three-day exhibition and flag sale on campus and the sale of chocolate eggs at a shopping mall. Ms Leung said: 'We chose the foundation because it gave us room for creativity and because we hope the cause will take root in the university.' The sale of chocolate eggs at Pacific Place netted $17,000. Ms Leung said the team knew little about cancer among children until they conducted the project. Aimed at polishing students' publicity skills, the project also helped the foundation, which looks after child cancer patients and their families at five main hospitals. They designed posters and leaflets and drafted a press release for the event. Money raised by the students will help fund the foundation's Family Service Centre in Wong Tai Sin, paediatric bone-marrow transplants, half-way homes, medical equipment, training and improvement of paediatric wards.
