Lok Sin Tong Cup

 

Benevolent Society

 

Lok Sin Tong has been one of the oldest charitable organisations in Hong Kong.

 

In the mid 18th Century, people in Kowloon City customarily conducted their trading businesses at the market located near the Lun Jin Pier. To ensure a fair trade, all goods had to be weighted by a designated scale before any deal was made. Fee was charged for this particular service.

 

A group of local Chinese, who managed this scale, then made use of the collected money for charitable purposes, such as providing free medical consultation to the needy and burial services to the poor dead with no charges. It was, not until 1880, a charitable organization officially established and given a name as The Lok Sin Tong Benevolent Society, Kowloon.

 

With its long-standing commitment to serve the community, the Society has striven its excellency in offering quality medical, educational as well as elderly care services, and actively participating in various charity, community and educational activities over the years.

 

 

Charitable Trophy

 

2000-03-08, the Lok Sin Tong presented a one-off Cup to commemorate its 120th anniversary in 1999/2000 season:
