ABERDEEN MARINA CLUB

HOW IT BEGAN
In 2010, the first Hong Kong Rugby 7’s Ladies’ Long Lunch made its debut. A massive success every year and now celebrating its’ 10th anniversary of fundraising on the Friday before the 7’s kick-off.
The 2019 Details
Celebrating 10 years of fundraising, this legendary Ladies’ Long Lunch takes place on Friday 5th April 2019 at The Aberdeen Marina Club.
The dress code this year is “Shine bright like a diamond” and if the last 10 years are anything to go by, guests can expect fine food and wine, exciting silent and live auctions, a live pledge, champagne, diamonds, lucky draws, entertainment and rather a lot of laughter all the while raising funds for the Foundation.

Due to high demand year on year, a ticket ballot is run. Applications for the ticket ballot process have now closed and ticket allocations communicated. However, there may be some last minute availability so if you’re keen to come along (and who wouldn’t be?!) please contact us to register your interest asap.
Our favourite 10’s team will be back in town and are already looking forward to their participation and role in this fabulous and fun-filled lunch. In 2010 we had just half a dozen representatives from Penguins Rugby, fast forward 10 years and we now have the whole touring club of up to 40 players, coaches, medics and management helping out on the day. They add something very special to the lunch I’m sure you’ll agree.

The Christina Noble Children’s Foundation (CNCF) is a partnership of people dedicated to serving children in need and those at risk of sexual and commercial exploitation, by providing emergency and long-term shelter, medical care, nutritional rehabilitation, educational opportunities, vocational training, and job placement. We believe all children have the right to be happy and safe childhood so they may live in peace and surrounded by love.
CNCF seeks to maximise the potential of each child. This is accomplished within the context of the family and the community whenever possible and always with love and respect for the dignity of each child as an individual. Read more about our work here.
Our programmes address poverty at a grassroots level with a long-term focus on providing a nurturing environment for personal development. All children who benefit from our programmes are deeply burdened by poverty. In addition, many are orphaned and homeless and/or suffer from disabilities and disease. Because of these factors, almost all are extremely vulnerable and at high risk of exploitation.
Since our Founder Christina Noble OBE arrived in Vietnam in 1989 and with the formal establishment of CNCF as an NGO in 1991, the Foundation has over the past twenty-nine years established 150 projects providing vital shelter, health services and educational opportunities; these projects, combined with our community development programmes, mean CNCF has to date impacted the lives of over 1,000,000 people.
