HKYWCA & Chevalier Group organised an outdoor activity for the elderly
Residents of Cheng Pon Hing Care & Attention Home for the Elderly enjoyed a day tour and had fun with Chevalier Group volunteer team.
The volunteers picked the elderly up from the Home for the Elderly and went straight to a shopping mall. Volunteers accompanied the elderly to shop in a supermarket. The elderly were happy with the food and necessities they wanted, including toothbrushes, kiwis, low sugar soy milk, oats, biscuits etc. They then had pizzas, spaghetti, snack platter etc. for lunch. As the elderly seldom have western food, they enjoyed the meal very much.
After lunch, they visited Hong Kong West Kowloon Station and walked around the ticketing lobby. Volunteers introduced the station, talked about the ticket fares and possible destinations, and explained the boarding procedures, etc. Before leaving, they took a group photo in front of an art piece in the station. It was their first time visiting the West Kowloon Station. Therefore, the elderly were excited and learnt a lot about it.
Thanks to Chevalier Group for taking care of the elderly with low mobility and who cannot go out very often. They had a lot of fun in this event which helped to connect them with the society and witness the development of Hong Kong.
