SILVER SUNDAY 2018– PREVENTING LONELINESS & CARING FOR THE ELDERLY

On 7th October, London Chinese Community Centre held the annual “Silver Sunday” event aiming to get more seniors out and about in order to integrate into society and prevent loneliness. On the day, there was Tai Chi, folk music, folk dance, calligraphy demonstrations, and other wonderful activities. The event attracted more than 30 of our elderly community who had a great time participating.

The mayor of Westminster, Lindsey Hall, was also in attendance. She personally tried to paint some Chinese characters, tasted the dim sum and took a group photo with the elderly.

Tai Chi master, John Leung, who has been teaching at the community centre for 6 years, noted that more and more elderly and young participants are beginning to recognise Tai Chi as a health-friendly activity.

In addition to cultural and recreational activities, the Chinese Community Centre also provides free welfare services, legal counselling, English classes and other benefits to the public. It is a charity that serves the Chinese community wholeheartedly.

遠離孤獨 銀髮周日關懷華洋長者

華人社區中心10月7日舉辦一年一度銀髮周日活動,旨在讓更多的長者走出封閉區,融入社會,遠離孤獨。

當日有太極、國樂、民族舞表演,書法展示與互動,以及芒菓慕斯蛋糕製作等多元精彩的活動,吸引了逾三十名華人及其他族裔長者參與。她們積極嘗試自己感興趣的活動,其樂融融。

西敏市市長荷蓮絲(Lindsey Hall)也盛裝前來為長者們送上祝福。她又親自嘗試寫毛筆字,品嚐烹飪班現場製作的中式點心,並親切地與長者們合影留念。

太極師傅梁永忻已在社區中心執教6年之久。他表示,不僅是老年人,越來越多的年輕人開始了解太極,認可太極是一項有利於身體健康的活動,並積極地參與。

除了文化娛樂活動,華人社區中心還免費提供福利申請、法律諮詢、英文班等惠民服務,是一個全心全意服務於華人社區的慈善機構。
