Guv Dillon had a strong Hong Kong Football Club lineage, having gone through the mini hockey program to play for both the Men’s A Team and the Hong Kong National Team. On top of his playing duties, he took great interest in developing the ability of others. His coaching extended beyond the club and into the local schools and community. It was important to him that as many children, whatever the background, should be exposed to the joy of hockey and the personal empowerment of taking part in team sports.
The Hong Kong Football Club hockey section has set up the Guv Dillion Fund to continue his work in both the community and in the sport.
The Guv Dillon Fund and Operation Breakthrough shares the same insight “to assist disconnected Hong Kong children to re-engage with their community through sport”.
The flagship event of the fund is the annual Guv Dillon Fund Hockey Charity Ball which was held on 2nd March. The event was a huge success, over $600,000 was raised with the proceeding going to the Operation Breakthrough, Love 21 Foundation.
Junied Razaq (Jay) was one of the speaker of the night who is coming from OB boxing programme. He shared his experience with the audience how he started OB boxing, his journey, people he met along the way and how sports has changed his life. Jay is currently under the apprenticeship with HKRU and also contributing back to the community by coaching boxing for Precious Blood Children’s Village.
Once again, We would like to thank Guv Dillon Foundation for the support and we are looking forward to next year event.
