Lamma Fun Day 2016



Thank you for your wonderful support towards Lamma Fun Day.

The event was a real success.  The beach was full, the live music line up incredible, the volleyball, kids games, auction, fun run, market stalls, delicious food and a well-run bar all contributed to a great day out for everyone.  Thanks to the wonderful press coverage received in the lead up to the event and the support from our sponsors and friends we were able to attract a larger crowd than ever before!

Together with your support and that of the Lamma community, Lamma Fun Day raised an incredible amount!  A total of HK$263,281 was collected before and during the event. An extra HK$99,365 was pledged during the auction therefore we are confident we will reach a gross income of more than HK$360,000 this year – which is 57% on 2015!

This year the event cost HK$121,839 to put on, which is an increase of 22% on 2015’s event cost. This amount includes deliveries of all goods to Lamma.  It includes the hiring of sound and lighting equipment, goods and services to run the day – all heavily discounted by sponsors.  The cost also includes the set up and dismantle of the entire event, licensing and permits required.  After costs, we expect the net income this year will be more than HK$240,807 representing an increase of approximately 83% on 2015!

Lamma Fun Day this year supports our Child Friendly Schools project in Nepal.  Almost half of Nepal’s children drop out of school by the time they reach 15 years of age due to poorly trained teachers, a lack of resources and poor infrastructure.  When a child drops out of school they become easy targets for exploitation and trafficking.  The longer a child stays in school the less likely they are to be tricked and exploited.  Our goal is to ensure children are protected, educated and can fight for their rights.  The project aims to transform 48 schools in villages near Pokhara by providing teacher trainings, educational materials, family support as well as improved infrastructure such as building toilets, repairing school buildings, building libraries, providing safe playgrounds, equipment and clean drinking water.  The HK$240,807 raised at Lamma Fun Day will enable us to transform 6 Primary Schools, benefiting 360 current students and their families and thousands more for future years. 

Although it is a drop in the ocean we are glad to be able to prevent even 1 child from going through the horrors of trafficking.   We are extremely grateful for your support and we end the year celebrating the lives protected and changed thanks to you.  Kindly find attached a photo collage from the event.  More photos can be found here.

Have a wonderful December and a happy, healthy and peaceful 2017!

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.

We are 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.

So far we have these wonderful companies committed to making Lamma Fun Day 2016 another great event for all to enjoy!
