Chairman Yang, University Council Members, President Tong and Honoured Guests,

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to The Hong Kong Polytechnic University for conferring upon me this University Fellowship. I am most delighted and honoured.

More than twenty years ago, I had the opportunity to serve on the Boards of Yan Chai Hospital and Tung Wah Group of Hospitals. During my eight years of service as their Director, I broadened my social network and got to know many people from the public and commercial sectors. As I often attend charity events, I have then been invited by various charitable organizations to assist in their fund-raising activities. Up to now, I have been involved in fund-raising projects for various social welfare organizations, hospitals and schools, as well as charitable trusts. Voluntary work is very demanding, but the experience is rewarding and has brought me both joy and a sense of fulfillment. I am indeed much honoured to have had the opportunity to be involved in fund-raising activities for PolyU. I am thankful for the trust the University has shown in me - my humble opinion is often accepted and I have a lot of flexibility in event management and so we are able to achieve good results. Now, I have become a member of the PolyU community and I will, of course, continue to serve the needs of PolyU.

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to my husband for his unwavering support, patience and love over the years. Without his understanding, I could hardly have made such achievements in voluntary service. I would also like to thank my three children for their support. They have accompanied me to many charitable activities and fundraising events since they were young, which was a valuable experience for them. I would also like to thank my parents for their guidance.

Most importantly, I would like to extend my gratitude to my friends, donors and companies for the generous support they offered to my fund-raising events.

Today, I would like to share with you all the honour I receive from PolyU, and to wish you all good health and happiness. “Good fruit comes from good causes.” Thank you very much.
