A.S. Watson Group partnered with the Hong Kong Christian Service to organise an indigo dyeing workshop for elderly, in which our volunteers assist elders in learning about indigo dyeing culture and skills, using natural plant printing and dyeing to create their own works. Elders found fun and enjoyment in the hands-on processes, while volunteers also felt rewarding through supporting the elders and seeing big smiles on elders’ faces. Proof that you are never too old to learn, and never too young to volunteer!

The A.S. Watson Group Hong Kong Student Sports Awards have been running for 16 years, providing inspiration and recognition for some of the amazing sporting talents in Hong Kong’s primary, secondary and special schools. Since 2005, more than 13,000 students have won the awards, and we are proud to have been able to continue with the programme this year, despite the limitations on gatherings as a result of the pandemic. This year’s Leadership Workshop was held online rather than in person, but interest was just as strong as usual, and attendance was as high as ever. In two hours, participants completed a range of activities to sharpen their communication skills, improve cooperation and hone their problem-solving abilities. Their team spirit and commitment showed that despite the challenges they face, their motto remains “Yes I Can!”
