Brilliant backers Here’s a brief but bumper update on our project: Walking tours have proved so popular that we’ve welcomed over 1100 people back to Chinatown since last summer and raised over £3000 for three Chinatown charities. We have bookings throughout this year and demand for private tours is so high that this year we’ve invested in training five more History Champions for our incredible volunteer team. Our intangible food culture heritage project concluded in February with the launch of our free food heritage trail map. This project involved eight volunteers who recorded original oral histories and food production techniques, which have now been archived. The maps are available to collect from outside China Exchange and we’re given out 7,000 already. After some pandemic related false starts, we are finally installing our Chinatown heritage boards. We aim to unveil these to mark the 2023’s East and Southeast Asian heritage month this September. We would love to invite you – the people who made this happen – to the unveiling ceremony (Wednesday 28 September 11am-12noon). Please email us if you wish to receive an invitation (firstname.lastname@example.org). We anticipate that we’ll send one final message to you once the boards are up. We hope you’ll see the impact of what you helped to create. Thank you for your support and involvement in Champion Chinatown Heritage, our 2021 project.
