Colourful LED kites wowed the patients as they brightened the evening skies.

CSC volunteers, along with Assisi Hospice and CDL management representatives, regale the patients with a special song performance.

CSC volunteers decorated the hall with paper lanterns and colourful streamers, imbuing it with the festive mood. After setting up the event hall, CSC volunteers were hands-on guiding patients step by step to make their very own snowskin mooncakes.

Besides distributing mooncakes and lanterns, a series of performances was also lined up that evening to entertain the patients and their families. A few of the CSC volunteers belted out familiar tunes and towards the end of the celebration, CSC volunteers accompanied patients for a stroll around the courtyard and were wowed by the unique radio-controlled kite flying performance where colourful LED lights were added to “string-less” kites.

Every year since 2008, CSC has been celebrating the Mid-Autumn festival with Assisi Hospice’s day-care and in-ward patients.
