The pandemic has brought international travel to a standstill. Exploring hidden gems in the community becomes a popular trend. In light of that, YWCA Shatin Integrated Social Service Centre organised an activity named “Dare to Move in Shatin” in February, aiming to unveil the beauty of the area in a vivid city hunt.
With the support from the Sha Tin District Office, 58 pairs of participants, either in parent-child group or youth group, joined the city hunt for free and had a one-day meaningful and amazing race.
The teams completed different tasks and took photos in several spots in Shatin. For instance, to take a photo with a special pose at Che Kung Temple Station, to locate the famous Amah Rock from the “octopus footbridge” in Tai Wai, to count the number of cylindrical emblems on the Sand Martin Bridge, etc. When the teams accomplished the tasks, they were given stamps, which earned them different prizes at the end of the game.
Feedback from the participants were positive. A Shatin resident confessed that he had never been to some of the checkpoints and was happy to visit the landmarks. He was also grateful for the chance to stretch his body and enjoy different workshops provided by YWCA, after staying at home to reduce the risk of infection for a long time.
