35th Anniversary & Re-opening Ceremony of Jockey Club Lai Kok Centre

2016 marked the 35th our anniversary.  At the same time, fifteen years after the opening of the Jockey Club Lai Kok Centre, it had started to show its age. Equipment was becoming old and obsolete and the facilities were unable to meet our service demands. We were fortunate to receive funding from the Hong Kong Jockey Club and started the renovation of the Lai Kok Centre in the end of 2015, so we could upgrade our facilitates to meet future service expansion, a project that took six months.

 

On 19 March 2016, we held a joyous celebration of the conclusion of the renovation with a simple, solemn opening ceremony.  HKFWC Founding President Prof Fanny Cheung Mui-ching and Chairperson Dr Liliane Chan Chui-king were joined by Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Manager Jasmine Chung to officiate. We also invited a wide range of organisations to join us in celebration.

 

Many of our volunteers shared how they had grown from participating in our events and courses -- a testament to the development of our services.
