“The Big Fish Award” is established to recognize Mrs. Lam Yu Lai Ling, Teresa’s spirit and dedication to serve for the betterment of our society as well as to honour her significant contribution in the social work field. Teresa graduated in 1973 from CUHK’s Bachelor of Social Science Programme in Social Work. She devoted the next 19 years of her life in Caritas-Hong Kong upon graduation and strengthened their services, particularly in youth and community development. Her selfless generosity, optimistic encouragement, wise forgivingness, resilient capability and loving warmth left a deep impression on many of the people she served, co-workers, friends and family. Having lived a giving, caring and passionate life, she passed away peacefully and gracefully in August 2019.

The awardees have demonstrated genuine care for people, passion in serving and commitment to promoting social well-being. They have also shown positive learning attitudes, strong leadership and good teamwork.

Teresa and the awardees’ family members and close friends, Prof. To Siu-ming (Chairperson of the Department) and Prof. Wong King-shui, Phyllis (Chairperson of the Undergraduate Programme and Curriculum Committee in Social Work) attended the Ceremony to congratulate the awardees.
