Festive cheer was in the air as the voices of carol singers elevated peoples’ spirits in a Wong Chuk Hang office earlier this month.

The troupe, formed by 20 employees of professional services firm KPMG, got dozens of colleagues in the holiday mood by presenting the songs Feliz Navidad, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, O’ Holy Night and Silent Night on December 10.

While revelling in the heart-warming singalong, attendees contributed to the accounting company’s donation towards
Operation Santa Claus
, the annual charity campaign organised by the South China Morning Post and public broadcaster RTHK.

Pat Woo, partner and head of corporate social responsibility at KPMG China, said the carolling session gave his team a chance to have fun and do charity work together during the festive season.

He said the company was keen to engage with the community.

“We continue to work with people we meet in the
Operation Santa Claus project
,” he said.
The company supported financial literacy programmes organised by beneficiaries of Operation Santa Claus
for the city’s young people
and
migrant workers
.

“This is an area where we feel we can serve society,” Woo said.

By coaching the younger generation on how to budget and plan for their future, he said his team hoped to help underprivileged families break the cycle of generational poverty.

Woo praised the partnership with Operation Santa Claus for enabling his team to do something meaningful for Hong Kong.

“As our company prospered in this city, we want to give back,” he said.
