Mr Yao Ling-Sun's Bequest Benefits Students of Lap-Chee College

The University of Hong Kong has received a bequest of HK$27.7 million from the late Mr Yao Ling-Sun, as a legacy to benefit future generations.

Mr Yao Ling-Sun, a local pioneer in the construction industry, was born in Shanghai in 1912.  He passed away in October 2007 at the age of 95. Throughout his life, Mr Yao dedicated himself to serving the Hong Kong community as well as contributing to education and public well-being.

The bequest endorses the conviction of HKU of developing its new tradition of residential college education. This generous gift will contribute to the "Yao Ling Sun Cultural Commons" and the "Yao Ling Sun Student Development Fund" at Lap-Chee College, thus benefitting more than 400 students every year.

The Band Room, Tea Chamber, E-Learning Centre, and mirrored-wall Studio of the "Yao Ling Sun Cultural Commons" will be exceptional focal points for students of different nationalities to meet and interact. The "Yao Ling Sun Student Development Fund" will be a permanent fund to facilitate students' local community projects, and global service learning opportunities.

Lap-Chee College is one of the four HKU residential colleges at Kennedy Town and is named after the immediate past Vice-Chancellor, Professor Lap-Chee Tsui.
