All actors and actresses in this video are actually the staff of Shun Hing Group and they come from different group companies.
Every year Shun Hing Group prepares a very special souvenir for all the guests. This year, the Group worked with a social enterprise Les Beatitudes to design some very special tote bags. These tote bags were sewed by grassroots women with donated neckties and each bag is unique. Shun Hing Group hopes to show the support to the underprivileged segment in society.
