Six Hundred Parents and Children Join Lamma Treasure Hunt


On 4 November 2017, HAC Lamma Treasure Hunt was held at Yung Shue Wan on Lamma. Over 200 parents and children explored the characteristic of small shops on the main street. In the afternoon, creative market was held at Yung Shue Wan plaza to link up elderly people and younger generations with stories and games. A total of 600 people participated throughout the whole day. HAC printed a limited edition of stamps for everyone to express their blessing in a message to elderly on postcards.

The officiating guests included, Mrs. Kwok Li Mung-yee, Helen Assistant Director (Youth and Corrections) Social Welfare Department; Mr. Chan Lin Wa, Chairman of Lamma Island (North) Rural Committee; Ms. Yu Lai Fan, MH District Council Member of Island District Council; Ms. Leung Yuen-shan, Woman Senior Inspector of Police, Post Commander of Lamma Island & Peng Chau Cheung Chau Division, Marine Port District; Ms. Wendy Tam Vice-Chairperson; Mr. Steven Hui, Honourary Treasurer and Ms. May Wong of Hans Andersen Club.

Ms. Wendy Tam shared that 33,129 participants were served in the last three years by Lamma Island Centre. 1600 volunteers from over 40 companies involved. Teenagers were developed, local community network was established and people from different sectors were connected. This year, we are grateful that Lamma Treasure Hunt programme was supported by 14 shops and over 150 volunteers, which was a good show case of social capital.

Mrs. Kwok Li Mung Yee appreciated the creative service methods adopted by HAC. For example, elderly visit via cycling, Little Change Makers project, story fun day and community farm. These activities connected the young people with older generation, helping to build a sustainable community.

In the Treasure Hunt session, parents and children got the chance to talk to elderly people in the human library setting. Mr. Tse brought his sons and wife to join the hunting game and successfully explored many interested shops on the island.

In the creative market, children are given recycle materials to build village for future. Clown performance also attracted lots of attention and laughter.
