Message from Valley RFC Sports Club | Rugby Hockey Netball

Hong Kong has been ravaged - first by civil unrest and then by COVID-19. It has been highly visible.

Less visible is the impact of lockdowns and economic stagnation.

Domestic violence has spiked and shelters for women and children are full.

Those living in poverty have been critically affected by the reduced ability of food banks to collect and distribute surplus food to those in need.

In Hong Kong, 3,600 tonnes of food waste ends up in landfills every day
 while more than one million people live in poverty.

Valley RFC (one of Hong Kong's largest sports clubs) will conduct a fundraising event on Saturday 27th June, between 6am and 6pm, by attempting to climb the Ladder Street stairs 1,000 times. This would represent the ascent and descent of Mount Everest four times in 12 hours.

Club members from the rugby, hockey and netball sections will work in teams to complete the task.

The club will collect donations via the Charitable Choice platform, with all proceeds being split 50/50 between Feeding Hong Kong and Harmony House. These two charities do an amazing job in protecting and supporting those affected by poverty, food shortages and domestic violence.

The club asks that supporters offer an equal amount to each cause when making donations on the website.

Valley RFC is extremely grateful for any and all donations made during the campaign.

charities supported

  • Feeding Hong Kong's main goal is to feed people in Hong Kong who would otherwise go hungry by offering food manufacturers, distributors and retailers a convenient, safe and reliable way to channel surplus food to local charities that help feed people in need.

  • Harmony House is dedicated to helping families affected by domestic violence and aims at building a caring, harmonious and mutually respectful community for “Zero Tolerance to Domestic Violence”.
