Never Too Young, Never Too Old

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!
