DONATES HK$100,000 TO CHARITY ON BEHALF OF DIAMOND AWARD RECIPIENT Jim Thompson
Bright sparks Jim and Sally Thompson are known across Hong Kong for their infectious positivity and boundless energy in everything from business to fitness to philanthropy. It was a sheer delight, therefore, for Barrie C Goodridge, CEO of Edipresse Media Asia and publisher of the Tatler stable of magazines in the region, to announce Jim as the recipient of the prestigious Diamond Award at last year’s Hong Kong Tatler Ball.
The gong came with HK$100,000 from the Tatler vault to put towards a charity of the Crown Worldwide chairman’s choice. Jim nominated the Society for the Promotion of Hospice Care (SPHC), which is fitting out a new hospice in Sha Tin. “We’ve always admired how Jim and Sally have tirelessly supported hospice care, from organising the annual Light Up A Life Christmas concert, to leading the physical challenge that is Hike for Hospice,” Goodridge said.
The donation is just part of the fundraising work Edipresse Media Asia does throughout the region via its various Tatler editions.
