APAC Wine Tasting to raise funds for Mind HK

Leathwaite APAC, hosted a wine tasting event in December in partnership with Tender Wines to raise money for the fabulous charity Mind Hong Kong.

This was the first opportunity to welcome clients to the office since moving in eighteen months ago. We were joined by several regional CHROs, all friends of the firm, who the team has partnered with over the last couple of years.

The event was in support of MindHK who the team are supporting this year as part of our Leathwaite Community initiative. MindHk do tremendous work improving awareness and understanding of mental health in Hong Kong. Given the events of the last couple of years this felt like a very natural choice. The event was enabled by Tender Wine who generously offered to donate a percentage of the proceeds of any wine purchases to MindHK.

Its was a relaxed evening and an excellent opportunity to show case our office and our outstanding team! 6 excellent wines on offer and a steady stream of orders ahead of the festive season!

Mind HK:

Mind HK is a charity committed to improving the awareness and understanding of mental health in Hong Kong. At least one in seven people in Hong Kong will experience a mental health problem. Mind HK believes that no one should have to face this alone.
