DONATES HK$100,000 TO CHAR­ITY ON BE­HALF OF DI­A­MOND AWARD RE­CIP­I­ENT Jim Thomp­son

Hong Kong Tatler - - Inbox -

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.
