Do you have a charity in Hong Kong you feel passionately about? Want to raise its profile and generate some funds to help it develop further? If so, the FCC Charity Committee would like to hear from you.
A key to the development of the FCC’s charity programme is to encourage as many members as possible to get involved in the charities we support, including nominating our chosen charities.
The China Coast Community care home in Hong Kong.
Our focus is on charities that fall under ‘The Three E’s’, namely, elderly care, early learning and educational special needs (any age and can be re-training). Whilst many charities in Hong Kong are high profile and receive substantial funding, we will focus on organisations that sometimes ‘fall between the cracks’ though quietly do great work in the community.
The organisation we are supporting in 2017 is the China Coast Community, where we have assisted in the purchase of specialised beds, organised physiotherapy for the residents and are organising visits to the Home. To help us select the cause we will support in 2018, we are inviting members and staff to make their suggestions on the attached form. A panel comprising the Charity Committee and Members of the Board of Governors will choose one of the qualifying charities nominated.
Thank you for taking the time to nominate a charity you know will benefit from the support of the FCCHK.

The Red Stripes will perform at the FCC on March 25.
‘Hong Kong Remembers’, the FCC’s extravaganza on March 25, will bring together some of the best of Hong Kong’s home grown musical talent with proceeds from the event going to our chosen charity, the China Coast Community.
Among the acts performing will be The Red Stripes, the acclaimed ska and soul band whose brass section is sure to raise the roof of the Main Dining Room. Down in Bert’s, Miriam Ma and Hippogroove will continue their run of getting the crowd on their feet with their energetic R&B sounds. Complementing these live acts will be DJ’s including local favourites Crimes Against Pop whose only instructions have been to ‘get the place dancing’.
Tickets for the event, which include buffet food and drinks, are available at the FCC priced HK$880 for members and HK$1100 for guests.
How can you support this year’s charity? Come to the party on March 25 and bring your friends and some cash for raffle tickets for the chance to win some fabulous prizes.
Miriam Ma and Hippogroove will perform in Bert’s during the charity party.
We have some terrific auction items – make sure you get your bids in! You can continue to bid on items at the event. All money raised will go to pay for the services of an occupational therapist.
If you would like to donate funds to “Buy-a-Bed” at HK$18,000 each, you will be acknowledged with a small donation plaque on the bed. Contact Joanne at [email protected] to pledge your donation.
As the China Coast Community is a registered charity under the IRO Section 88, any donation would qualify for tax relief, in which case cheques should be made payable directly to China Coast Community Limited and can be sent to the FCC, c/o Joanne Cheung who will then process them with CCC.
