Volunteer Services

The volunteers of HKACS and JCCRC organise recreational activities, visits and support services regularly for cancer patients and their families to show their care. All volunteer services are supervised and led by full time staff. Volunteers must work together sincerely to achieve the goals of HKACS.

HKACS has been blessed to have a team of enthusiastic volunteers of different ages and backgrounds supporting various services we provided. A number of them were cancer survivors, or having relatives or friends suffered from cancer. We deeply appreciated their passion and dedications to enhance public's cancer awareness and to support cancer patients and their families in different stages. We also value cancer survivors' contributions to the volunteer services through which people can learn from their positive attitudes in fighting cancer.

The Annual Volunteers Gathering cum Award Presentation

In order to strengthen the connection with volunteers and recognise volunteers’ contributions in the past year, we held “The Annual Volunteers Gathering cum Award Presentation” in a hybrid mode on 6 May 2023. We invited our Chairman and members of the Volunteer Services Committee to attend the event. A total of 22 volunteers participated in person or online. During the event, we reviewed various volunteer services provided last year and invited volunteers to share their precious experiences to encourage more volunteers to participate in future activities. Ms. Alice Cheung, Chairman of the Volunteer Services Committee, presented certificates to volunteers who had contributed in volunteer services last year; Mrs. Patricia Chu, our Chairman, also reported the future work of The Hong Kong Anti-Cancer Society in the event.
