The Lord Mayor has highly praised all the diligent ladies who have multitasking ability by keeping the family together, being a housewife and also helping to run a family business, yet still find time to do voluntary work for the association by both giving time and money to a good cause. She also praised the Chinese Community for bringing so much to the city and to the region including cultural and academic input and also business acumen which provides high boost to the local economy; plus highlighted Liverpool's Chinatown and Chinese Community playing an important role in the relation with China, especially the relationship with Shanghai.

On the day, there were also excellent dance and singing performance from Pagoda Arts centre, See Yep members, and fabulous violin and mime Performance from local talented artists. The food provided by Chung Ku Restaurant was outstanding as always and the raffle draw prizes were second to none.

To organise this year's event was a very challenging one for the leaders and members of the association owing to the current fears of the Coronavirus, but thanks to all the support from everyone, it was as successful as always. Everyone enjoyed it and had a memorable day.
