This Christmas season, while everyone is preparing x'mas shopping lists or looking for hearty gifts to celebrate the lovely season, the Sino Group of Hotels has joined hands with Chocolate Rain in support of "Operation Santa" to launch a patchwork workshop with over 20 guests, including media influences, journalists and lifestyle bloggers.
A patchwork of caring hearts
We worked hand-in-hand with children from the Lui Ming Choi kindergarden, adding festive decorations to the colourful blankets made from up-cycled fabrics, which will be donated to beneficiaries of "Operation Santa Claus", such as elderly centres.

The special event also covered some special canapes, cocktails, Christmas turkey and a bunch of delicate patisseries prepared by the City Garden Hotel, which will be served exclusively at their buffet restaurant during Christmas.
