On Monday's Backchat, private recreational leases. The Home Affairs Bureau recently released the results of the public consultation on Hong Kong's private recreational leases, covering 24 private sport clubs including golf, yachting and cricket. It's reported that the clubs look likely to keep paying cheap rates for prime sites for now as the government remains undecided over whether to demand one-third of the market value of the land when renewing their leases. Should these clubs be charged full price? What do they really contribute? Are they just subsidised playgrounds for the wealthy?
After 9.20, a smart system to tackle illegal parking.
Helping and serving others is the foundation of happiness. Themed as “Spread some Joy this Christmas”, Operation Santa Claus, the annual fundraising event jointly organised by Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) Radio 3 and the South China Morning Post (SCMP), has raised more than HK$17 million for 13 charity projects this year.
Guests at the closing ceremony, held at Crown Wine Cellars in Shouson Hill, were entertained by band leader Colin Aitchison and the China Coast Jazzmen. And 13-year-old award-winning local singer Elizabeth Stewart was also on stage to help fill the occasion with warmth. Officiating guests, Director of Broadcasting LEUNG Ka-wing and Chief Executive Officer of South China Morning Post Gary LIU then revealed the total raised -- HK$17,096,327 -- on a specially made extended scroll. They expressed heartfelt thanks for the generous support from individuals, schools, groups of workmates and corporate donors over the past two months.
Among the supporters who made this year such a success, several received special awards during the ceremony. Top School Fundraiser went to Discovery Mind School, while Shung Tak Catholic English College was awarded Most Creative School Fundraiser. This year’s Top Corporate Fundraiser was Morgan Stanley, and Swire Properties was recognized as Most Creative Corporate Fundraiser.
