Kiu Chung Choi
KC Choi passed away on 1st May 2019.
Always generous with his time and energies, he believed in helping others. Upon retiring from working life as a civil servant, he and Christella set up a residential care home for the elderly, looking after hundreds of residents over 12 years. After that, they really did retire, and moved to Kingston, where he helped to start up the Kingston Chinese Association in 1998, taking the founding role as Chairman to establish and grow an organisation that now numbers several hundred members.
The KCA provides a vital weekly meeting place for education, social interaction and leisure, keeping retired people active, healthy and mentally engaged. KC enjoyed giving his time and energy for others and gained enormous pleasure from supporting the KCA and seeing it thrive for more than 20 years.
More recently however, local funding cuts and increased weekly rental costs at the new Searchlight Community Centre where the KCA meets, are threatening its continued existence. If things continue as they are, KCA will simply run out of money.
So KC's family would like to support a cause which meant a lot to him - collecting funds for the KCA, which will benefit many others into the future.
Thank you so much for pushing this above target and towards £3000!!
KC would be astonished and quietly very delighted....
