A major charitable event is our "Rice Dumplings for the Community" programme, which is organised annually during the Dragon Boat Festival. Our largest community event, it involves the collective efforts of district councillors, legislative councillors, schools and community organisations, who make thousands of rice dumplings for distribution to the disadvantaged groups in Hong Kong.
In 2007, we broke a Guinness World Records of wrapping the most rice dumplings. 34,056 dumplings in this instance, on one occasion. The event not only raised $840,000 for the Community Chest, it also revived the traditional art of wrapping rice dumplings.
