This exciting family fun day with great live music on the Tai Wan To Beach will take place between 11 am & 10 pm on Saturday 4th November 2017.

Please contact CWS by email at info@cwshk.org if you are interested in any of the following:
· Join the event committee
· Volunteer on the day
· Rent a stall
· Sponsor the event – in cash or in-kind
· Feature the event
· Register a Volleyball Team

Lamma Fun Day was established by Andrew Doig to raise money for Child Welfare Scheme (CWS). It is a free outdoor music festival and is the longest running music event in Hong Kong. The event is great fun for music lovers and families, with food and market stalls, a licensed bar, arts & crafts and kids’ activities, as well as live music on the beach from 12 noon through to 10pm.

The organizing committee, Bands and musicians all donate their time for free, so the majority of money raised on the day is through sales at the licensed bar, which offers reasonably priced draft beer, house wines and soft drinks. There are also food stalls, donations and a charity auction that runs through the afternoon.

All proceeds go to CWS to support programmes to improve the Government education system in Nepal. The goal is to improve teaching quality, educational resources and infrastructure such as libraries, toilets, clean water, safe classrooms, computers etc. By making school safer, more fun and interesting children will stay in school longer, therefore protected from trafficking and exploitation.

CWS is grateful to the Lamma community, the musicians and volunteers who give up their time and the many sponsors who together make it such a wonderful community event. Their continued support is extremely valuable, especially when the global community has moved its focus on other deserving causes that are also in great need of assistance.

Date: Saturday, 4 November 2017

Time: 11am – 11pm

Place: Lamma Power Station Beach
