Fifty of our beneficiary children have teamed up with around 150 Dah Sing Bank employees in a basketball challenge. The purpose of the event was to help employees build bonds with the community while raising money for Operation Santa Claus (OSC), the annual fundraising appeal jointly organized by the South China Morning Post and public broadcaster RTHK.

Games between bank employees were accompanied by an array of charity challenges for the children.  The more buckets scored, the greater the donations were as every hoop scored in both the games and challenge tasks counted towards the final donation figure.  Read on to find out more!
