Join Peter Lewis on Tuesday 11 December for a very special Money Talk business breakfast and charity auction. We’ll be coming live from Grappa’s Cellar, at Jardine House, in Central Hong Kong raising money for our annual charity Operation Santa Claus.
The special guest on the programme will be Douglas Young, co-founder of lifestyle and fashion store, Goods of Desire. You can come along too. Doors open at 7 a.m. and entrance costs just HK$300 including breakfast. Or you can listen on Radio 3 and watch on Facebook live right after the 8 o’clock news. And you can join in with the charity auction even if you can’t get along. Just go to https://hkaops.cbo.io/ for details of how to register and to see the wonderful items donated to the auction by local businesses. All the proceeds will go to Operation Santa Claus and help the 13 worthy charities and good causes.

On Tuesday's Backchat, a living wage and the minimum wage. Oxfam says local workers need around $55 per hour in order to meet basic living needs, while the minimum hourly wage is now at $34.50.
Oxfam believes that paying a living wage would enable employees and their families to make a reasonable living and secure a decent standard of living, address the problem of working poverty, and close the gap between the rich and poor to create a fairer society.
Almost 1.4 million people are living below the official poverty line, which means earning a monthly income of $4,000 or less as an individual. Are poor people getting poorer despite the improving economy? Has the government been doing enough? Would you encourage employers to pay more - and if so, how?

Christmas is a time to give! The launch ceremony for Operation Santa Claus 2018 was held on November 13 at the Parade Ground at Tai Kwun, in Central. This year's theme is Spread some Joy this Christmas. Thirteen good causes will benefit from this year’s community-wide charity campaign.
Congratulations to our very own Steve James, who’s been declared top on-air personality in the main Asia-wide broadcasting awards, the ABU Prizes. Steve has been hailed as number one for his weekday afternoon show by the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union – which has a network of members that can reach 3 billion people across the region! It’s great recognition for Steve, who’s been with Radio 3 for the past 17 years. As well as hosting his show, The Steve James Afternoon Drive – to give it its full title – with its comic social observations, parody songs and social media engagement, he’s also the producer of Vintage Chart Toppers, and works his magic on lots of the Radio 3 trails and theme tunes that you hear every day. In all, RTHK won four top prizes in the seven radio categories – an unprecedented success – the others coming in the documentary, news reporting and community service announcement sections.
