January 2016 Update

Charitable Work

1. On the 10th January, we were invited as a Table to the Hong Kong Sea School Open day which amongst a range of activities included the opening and unveiling of a plaque acknowledging the support of The Association of Round Tables in Hong Kong Charitable Foundation. We supported the renovation of their study centre at a cost of HK$165,000. Karla from Ladies Circle helped with some translation and photos courtesy of Mario and his daughter. First official duty for Gordon as new Round Table 10 Chairman.

2. Titus visited South Island School and spotted this on the wall.

Social Focus

Good fun and we heard some charity updates including The Crossroads Foundation and The John Fawcett Foundation (more on these two in February
