MaD Week Food Drive With ImpactHK

Esther 8K1 writes:

“These are the food we collected over our MaD week food drive which will be passed onto the homeless people in Hong Kong with the support of the charity ImpactHK. Jeff Rotmeyer, the founder of ImpactHK, helps homeless people by giving them food rounds as acts of generosity. We wanted to continue our work supporting ImpactHK and your help with our food drive was a huge success in achieving our goals. On behalf of the MaD Council, we thank everyone who donated food items!”

Scouts Complete Marathon Hike

Chief Scouts’ candidates completed their 30K expedition at the end of October – all in one go, on a marathon 7 1/2 hour hike late into the night. Organiser Lucas Chan (Y10) wanted to hike around Tai Tam, and it took the six Scouts half a dozen recces to map out a new route crossing some of Hong Kong island’s wildest corners.

Covid-19 has brought in special challenges: in the past, Scouts could spread the expedition over two days, and camp overnight. This year, with all campsites closed, they only had the option of a long hike, all in one go. The Scouts also had to prepare part of the expedition on Zoom, as face-to-face activities were suspended over the summer and only resumed on October 10th.

The Scouts started at Chai Wan MTR, hiked up Dragon’s Back, then down and along Tai Tam Bay, around the Tai Tam reservoirs, and finished by hiking along remote catchwaters at the foot of Violet Hill and the Twins.

The team also had to postpone the expedition by two days due to a late season typhoon.

Well done to Brendan Tang, David Chong, Justin Cheng, Lucas Chan, Zheng Hao Leong – all from Y10.
