What people have said about us? 心聲摘錄

One of our users described our services as “totally priceless”, and our advisory service and volunteer services as “invaluable”.

Another user said, “It is a very good centre where Chinese who do not speak English can get together, especially elderly, to make friends and participate in various activities. These activities help and support the lonely that live at home and make them healthier and mobile.”

One of our members described our community centre as “A place for gathering; a home from home.”

Another member said, “For seniors, the best service is the lunch provided at noon. Monday to Friday at a bargain price for everyone. Outside expert’s speakers are invited to give lectures on health matters, and foreign languages and English classes are held for those who wish to learn.”

Mrs C says, “In the past, because of work I have not been able to meet so many Chinese elderly and now I have the chance to know more about the traditional Chinese cultures.” (2016)

Mr K says, “I come to the Centre twice a week to do exercise and have lunch. I can keep myself active and on the other hand I can taste the delicious food at the Centre” (2016)

Mrs K says, “I come to the Centre everyday to have lunch, watching Chinese television programmes and socialising with others. If on any day that I cannot come to the Centre I will be sleeping the whole day through at home as I feel so lonely.” (2016)

David Porter (Spanish Class student, centre member) 2016

“Over a ten week period a handful of CCCC members have been guided in this Iberian language by the splendid volunteer Susana. I was completely clueless of Spanish when travelling around Argentina and Chile in January with my wife Agnes. Now armed with excellent tuition provided by Susana I will at least know where to start when communicating with local residents. Thank you Susana. Also credit must go to my enthusiastic classmates in addition to the Camden Chinese Community Centre for putting on the class.”

Mr Liu (Jubilee House service user, centre member) 2016

‘‘Sometimes it is inconvenient for me to eat out for lunch. Camden Chinese Community Centre has arranged volunteers to deliver hot meal and soup to my door on weekdays no matter how the weather looked like. They were on time and the service was wonderful.’’

Mable Chan (Participants of various activities, centre member) 2016

‘‘I participated various activities in Camden Chinese Community Centre. For examples, Arts & Crafts workshop is very interesting & the tutor is good. I enjoy the Wednesday exercise class the most. I’m catching up Tuesday’s Kele Ball Class & the tutor is good. The Lunch here is excellent. I hope Camden CCC goes well.’’

Mrs Ho (Centre volunteer) 2016

‘’I am excited to go to CCCC though I need to take bus, train and tube to there. Every time when I delivered hot meals to shelter house, I would think of those elderly who could receive hot dishes and enjoy a delicious Chinese meal. And I felt really grateful for this volunteering. In Luncheon Club, elderly meets and enjoys lunch together at a Chinese round table. After lunch, they play mah-jong to exercise brain and limb functions to prevent from dementia. It is my great honour to serve the centre and I have met many friends here. I have to thank you Mr Ho, staff and friends who introduced me and my sister to this centre.’’

Susana (Spanish Class teacher, centre volunteer) 2016

‘’It was a pleasure to have taught the Spanish beginner course in Chinese Camden Community Centre. My students are all super smart and lovely! I indeed enjoyed our 10 lessons of sharing and learning process.’’

Mr Chow (French Class teacher, centre volunteer) 2016

‘’I feel Camden Chinese Community Centre warm like a big family – with enthusiastic staff, harmonic members, and everyone is playing at his strengths so as to develop a better centre. I also wish to contribute a bit to the centre by volunteering and learning French with members…The reason why the French Class continuous is because of everybody’s support and encouragement.’’

「中心服務是無價的」

「諮詢服務及義工服務是無價的」

「這是一個很好的中心,不憧英語的華人能聚首一堂,特別是長者,可以認識朋友及參與中心不同活動。這些都能幫助和支持一些孤獨的老人,讓他們生活得更健康及活躍」

「中心是我的另一個家,一個聚會的地方」

「對老年人來說,最好的服務是提供午餐。星期一至五都有,又便宜。中心亦會邀請其他專業講者來演講健康題目。中心亦有提供其他語言及英文班,讓長者活到老,學到老。」

C女士說 : 「以前因工作的原因,我未能與中國人長者接觸,現在有機會重新認識有關中國傳統文化。」(2016)

K先生說 : 「我每星期到中心兩次做運動及享用午餐。在中心我不但可以増進活動能力,更可品嚐到美味的餸菜。」(2016)

K女士說 : 「我每天均到中心吃餐,看中文電視節目和朋友交談。如有一天我未能到中心,在家裏覺得很孤單,便整天睡覺。」(2016)

David Porter (西班牙文班學生,中心會員) 2016

‘…感謝出色的Susana這十星期的教導。在一月時我與太太外遊時完全不懂西班牙文,現在經過Susana悉心教導,我至少知道如何開始與當地人交談。感謝Susana。另外也要多謝踴躍熱心的同學們及甘頓華人社區中心舉辦了這個興趣班…’

廖生 (銀禧閣服務使用者,中心會員) 2016

‘本人年紀大,有時不方便外出午餐。甘頓華人社區中心的義工逢星期一至五,不論熱天、寒冷或下雨,都辛苦地將熱飯、靚湯送到我的門口,而且十分準時,服務一流!’

Mable Chan (活動參與者,中心會員) 2016

‘我參與很多甘頓華人中心的活動,如有趣的工藝班,老師很好。我最喜愛星期三的運動班。我努力學習可樂球,老師很好。這裡的午餐很好味。我希望中心能各樣都很好。’

何太 (中心義工) 2016

‘我懷著興奮的心情,伴著輕快的腳步,踏上公車、火車及地鐵,輾轉到達中心。每次送餐到老人屋,途中想著老人們收到熱騰騰的飯菜,享受著可口的午餐,喜悅之情不禁泛上心頭。在中心午餐會,老人們濟濟一堂,有說有笑,享受著豐富的午飯,飯後攻打四方城,可以令腦部和手部活動,不易患上退智症,一大享受。能為中心服務,是我的榮幸,讓我認識到許多好友,特別感謝介紹我和姐姐到中心的人,何生和中心職員等等。’

周超才 (法文班老師,中心義工) 2016

‘我感覺華人中心就像大家庭一樣溫暖,工作人員熱情,會員之間融洽,人人都發揮自己的力量,為的是共同建設好華人中心。我也想為“中心”做點滴義務工作,與會員共同學習法語…今天華人中心的法語課能繼續下去,是因為有大家的支持和鼓勵。’
