San Miguel staff raised some Christmas cheer by hosting a party for children from the Hong Kong Blind Union. About 40 children attended the party hosted by the company at the Caritas Social Centre in Yau Ma Tei. The brewery has again donated $100,000 towards Operation Santa Claus and an additional $10,000 from the firm's Staff Happy Together Club by auctioning company souvenirs. This year, donations from Operation Santa Claus will go to blind and visually impaired children in Hong Kong and on the mainland. The Hong Kong Blind Union hopes to use the money to fund 20 visually impaired children in mainstream schools where they will benefit from an integrated education. The money will go towards providing a support network, tutorial groups, visual-aid equipment and Braille computers.
