On Saturday, 26 November, volunteers from Conyers’ Hong Kong office teamed up with The Boys’ & Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong (“BGCA”) and took 45 primary one to three underprivileged school children between the ages of 6 and 9 to the Hong Kong Children’s Discovery Museum (“HKCDM”) in Sai Wan Ho.
Conyers has a long standing commitment to contributing to local communities and this is the second year in a row that Conyers has partnered with BGCA to participate in a meaningful local initiative. In addition to the visit to the museum as part of our Christmas initiatives, the Hong Kong office will be also donating more iPads to BGCA in connection with our upcoming new year charitable giving initiative, to continue to assist children in need with remote learning during the pandemic.
We are delighted that our active engagement through partnership with BGCA over the last two years has made a meaningful impact on the community and in particular the children and youth of Hong Kong.
Volunteers including, Partner and Head of Hong Kong Office Christopher Bickley, Partners Richard Hall, Piers Alexander, Anna Chong, Wynne Lau, Teresa Tsai, Counsel Alexander Doyle, Associates Ryan McConvey and Charlie Chan, Legal Manager, Michelle Au, Head of Corporate Services Hong Kong, Rowan Wu, Finance Manager, Natalie So, Business Development & Marketing Manager, April Tang, Paralegal Adam Ng, Business Development & Events Specialist, Hilda Cheng and Corporate Administrator, Kathy Wong took part in the museum visit.

The Conyers volunteers met the children at the museum where Partners Richard Hall and Anna Chong gave some opening remarks before all the fun and games. The children were paired in groups with the volunteers who helped them explore the different interactive zones at HKCDM.

HKCDM is the Hong Kong’s first museum dedicated to child-led learning through play. It is an interactive, hands-on play space that nurtures, equips, and empowers children through meaningful play interactions, sparking lifelong learning across generations.
The pandemic and resulting social distancing restrictions over the past few years has limited social interaction for many of the children and the visit to HKCDM gave them the opportunity to interact with the Conyers volunteers and develop important social skills.
The children were fascinated by the immersive learning experience as they completed some mini games and challenges set by BGCA.
We would like to thank our Conyers volunteers for contributing their time and efforts to this event. We look forward to partnering with BGCA again in the future!
