20th Anniversary Roving Exhibition

Olympic cycling medallist Sarah Lee cheers on Ambassadors
and encourages Hong Kong citizens to volunteer and help those in need

19 November 2021, Hong Kong - To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Swire Properties Community Ambassador programme is set to host the "Community Ambassador Together for 20 Years - Roving Exhibition", a special showcase that celebrates two decades of volunteering, including how the Company has been giving back to the greater Hong Kong community. Highlights include a large 3D art installation - a social media photo spot where visitors can capture and share the spirit of love and care.

Supporting the Community Ambassadors' mission and joining us to celebrate this momentous milestone was two-time Olympic cycling bronze medallist Sarah Lee Wai-sze, who paid a special visit to the Exhibition during the preview.

Sarah Lee, Hong Kong's Olympic Cycling Medallist, said, "I really admire the Swire Properties Community Ambassador programme which continues to create so much positive energy for local communities. Volunteering and being an athlete are similar, as you have a strong purpose and sense of determination. I hope more Hong Kong citizens will volunteer and experience the wonders of helping others, and the strong sense of satisfaction it brings."

Tim Blackburn, Chief Executive of Swire Properties said, "Our Community Ambassador Programme is a great example of how we're building vibrant and sustainable communities for the long-term, and how our colleagues are connecting with the communities by helping those in need. We're delighted at how far the programme has come in 20 years and we're determined to do even more for our communities in the future."

Celebrities and influencers, who are well-known for their philanthropic spirit, have also shown their support for the Exhibition, including Ivana Wong, Phil Lam, Louise Lee, Cheung Man-sun, Candy Chea, Eric@EO2 and his family, and Sing Sing Rabbit.

In collaboration with local illustrator Fei Wong, a large 3D art installation - "Together, We Are One! Feel The Love" - was custom-made for the Exhibition. An interactive experience where visitors can enjoy the visual illusion of ‘taking a journey' on a hot air balloon (a volunteering journey), as well as take snaps with two special social media filters that will make for some great posts.

The Exhibition will also feature the "LUV LUV Palette Art Workshop", during which participants can upcycle leftover cloth from the "SEWomen" reusable mask project and discarded fabrics from factories to design and create their own eco-friendly tote bag. Participants can register for a free session via the "WE ARE ONE" Facebook page. Limited spots; first-come, first-served.

What's more, people who follow the "WE ARE ONE" Facebook or Instagram pages, and share photos of the Exhibition on social media, will receive special gifts. Limited quantities; first-come, first-served.
