Tennis Society Supports the Refugee Union with Christmas Donations and Gifts21 Jan 2021
Originally set for Saturday 12th December, the Tennis Society Christmas Charity Social had us all gearing up towards an evening full of fun, hilarious attempts to win a prize for best dressed and exciting tennis. Unfortunately, even with the Christmas social committee going to extra efforts to follow the everchanging social distancing measures to keep the event running, the fourth COVID-19 pandemic required all facilities to close down due to social distancing measures and this also included the tennis courts.
On the bright side, we were delighted to support the Refugee Union, Hong Kong’s only refugee-led Society. A HK$10,000 cheque from the Tennis Society was provided to the union, and we hope this can aid their efforts in Hong Kong. In addition, several members also positively contributed to the union in the form of gifts for the children. We hope that they stay safe, and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year in Hong Kong.
A big thanks to our Chairwoman, Karen Thorne, and Social Secretary Kelly Gu for organizing the charity donations and presenting the cheque and Christmas gifts to the Refugee Union.
