Operation Santa Claus (OSC) continued to promote the spirit of helping and caring to benefit those in need in the city, raising more than HK$16.7 million in donations, and overcoming another year of challenges. The funds raised by this year’s OSC campaign will be shared amongst 15 beneficiaries across the city that serve more than 12,000 people and support disadvantaged communities, including charities serving the causes of children and youth, the community, the environment, medical, elderly, and those with physical and mental disabilities.
This year’s theme of ‘Sports and All’ featured a wide range of exciting fundraising activities. Over 60 corporate and school donors, and thousands more continued showing their generous support to the campaign. OSC celebrated the conclusion of this year’s campaign by announcing four awards to noteworthy corporations and schools for their fundraising efforts. They are:
● Top Corporate Fundraiser – Morgan Stanley

On Friday's Backchat we're talking about cross-harbour tunnel toll changes
From 2 August, the tolls on all three cross-harbour tunnels will be adjusted, as part of the government’s two-part plan to ease cross-harbour congestion.In the first part, the toll for private cars taking the Western Harbour Crossing will go down to HK$60, while those on the Cross-Harbour Tunnel and Eastern Harbour Crossing will go up to HK$30. But taxis will enjoy a flat rate of HK$25 for all three tunnels.
And in the second part of the plan that will be implemented by the end of this year, rush-hour fares for private cars and motorcycles will be introduced.
How effective will this plan be in easing cross-harbour congestion? Will motorists encounter any practical problems?
After 9:45, we will stick with transport, and look at the MTRC’s new fare adjustment mechanism
