The Bank has continuously sponsored new programmes to contribute to our society. In 2016, the Bank has sponsored the "Needles and Treads, Love is Spread" event of Senior Police Call*, to set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™ of "Most people sewing simultaneously" # with 333 senior citizens. The event was held on 5th February (Friday), right before the Chinese Lunar New Year. The senior citizens sewed badges on 9,999 scarves during the event, which will be presented to the needy in Hong Kong and mainland China. The Bank also gave out auspicious red packets as souvenir, which brought pleasure and delight to the senior citizens.

*Senior Police Call was established by Hong Kong Police in February 2014, with over 5,500 members as of early 2016. It aims at promoting crime prevention, crime combat, as well as home and road safety.

#The previous record of "Most people sewing simultaneously" was set by 250 people.
