Land Registry Volunteer Work
Visit the Elderly and their Carers in the Year of the Rabbit 2023
In collaboration with the Choi Hung Community Centre for Senior Citizens of Yang Memorial Methodist Social Service, 34 volunteers, including staff members and their family members, led by the Land Registrar paid visits to the elderly persons and their carers living in Choi Hung Estate on 28 January 2023.
Our volunteers visited more than 50 households to express our care and warm wishes of the Year of the Rabbit. In addition to chatting with the elderly and their carers to understand their daily lives and needs, we brought them Chinese New Year blessing bags in celebration of the festival. The elderly enjoyed our home visits and deeply felt the festive joy of the Chinese New Year. The volunteers also found the visits very meaningful.
Bread Run - Collect Surplus Bread to Reduce Food Waste
To advocate the virtue of reducing food waste in Hong Kong, our volunteer team participated in the “Collect Surplus Bread” in collaboration with Feeding Hong Kong on 23 March 2023.
In Bread Run, our volunteers as bread runners split into three teams to collect surplus bread from various bakeries located in Admiralty, Central and Kowloon Bay after shop closing. The surplus bread were then brought to the collection point of Feeding Hong Kong and redistributed to the food banks and welfare organisations that were in need of food assistance in the following morning. Our volunteers are grateful for the opportunity to serve the community by rescuing surplus quality food and bringing the food to where there is a need.
