This year's Big Bird Race raised more than one million Hong Kong Dollars for WWF Hong Kong.
I'm pleased to report that my team - the "Wandering Tattlers" raised the most money. With my having been out-of-town it was my fellow Tattlers who did all the good work in this respect:- Gavin Cooper (Recorder), Andrew Young, Tim Woodward and Roger Muscroft.
