Hong Kong and UK-based alumni come together to celebrate Loughborough
On Friday 3 May, the Hong Kong alumni group welcomed fellow UK-based Loughborough graduates to the Kiangsu & Chekiang Residents Association Club for their latest gathering.
Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed socialising over dinner and a game or two of Mahjong, a traditional Chinese tile-based game.
Patrick Lee, President of the Hong Kong Alumni Association, said in his opening speech:
“I am delighted to see more western Loughborough friends joining alumni events in Hong Kong as this will bring more diversification into the alumni group.”
He further explains:
“As trading businesses grow between mainland China and the UK, the alumni group in Hong Kong can help both Chinese and Western alumni to understand and share cultural and market information”.
Among the 22 attendees was former 2016-17 President of the Loughborough Students’ Union, Jonathan Ako. Joining him from the UK were two current students who are set to graduate from Sport Science in 2020.
The Hong Kong alumni group are always happy to meet with fellow Loughborough graduates who are visiting from another country.
