Engaging in volunteer work helps other people while bringing happiness to ourselves. It can also broaden our social circle, enrich ourselves, and make life more fruitful and meaningful. So why not become a volunteer? Yet, it may not be easy for Hong Kongers, who are burdened with livelihood and lead hectic lives, to spare time and effort to do so.

Still, according to the statistics of the “Volunteer Movement” launched by the Social Welfare Department, there are over 1.3 million registered volunteers up to 2018. In this enormous army of volunteers, many are extremely devoted contributors, with a high number of volunteering hours. Not only are they whole-heartedly committed and persistent, but they also incorporate the spirit of volunteering into their daily lives. To them, volunteering is much more than participating in a “project” or an “event”. How did they come this far from being a “volunteer beginner”? How did they help others help themselves? How did they deal with difficulties and challenges? And what are the beliefs and thoughts that support them to continue being a volunteer?

The programme is an 8-episode series of one-off dramas adapted from real-life cases, featuring characters of volunteers from all walks of life, including university graduates (young people), parents and children, working people (middle-aged taxi driver), professionals (social worker, designer, journalist, etc.), founders of social enterprises, retirees and people recovering from illness (breast cancer survivors, ex-emotionally ill persons). In the form of drama, the mentality of different volunteers will be shown in a meticulous way, so that the audience will be able to have a taste of the sweets and bitters of the volunteers’ lives, and to understand in more detail what “Volunteering – Make a Difference in Life” means.

Kaka (played by Sofiee NG) used to suffer from depression. Fearing that she would be labelled, she has always avoided telling people about her history with mood disorder, and has relied on daily cycling to keep herself positive. With the challenges of a new job and the emergence of an admirer who happens to be her male colleague Chun (played by Kaki SHAM), she feels uncertain and struggles deep down in her heart.

Later, Kaka volunteers at a self-help organisation of persons with mood disorder, and meets some volunteers who are strong believers of mood disorder patients helping themselves, and brave enough to acknowledge and accept their identity as former mood disorder patients. They include the chairman of the organisation Jacky (played by Ben YUEN), and volunteer Ah Wai who is pursuing a doctoral degree in psychology (played by Kenneth CHEUNG). After spending time and interacting with them, Kaka’s thinking changes gradually…

    Sow the Seeds

    Fresh university graduates Melody (played by Rachel LEUNG), Ceci (played by Jackie LAU) and Stephy (played by Jace CHAN) are good friends. Once, they helped an elderly lady (played by LI Chung-mei) to push her cart on the streets to transport cardboards. This happy experience prompted them to do volunteer work for the grass-root communities in the neighbourhood, and the plan was immediately put into action.

    With the help of “Cardboard Granny”, they successfully distribute home-made sweet soups to the homeless. Subsequently, they call for their friends to volunteer to help distributing supplies and giving free haircuts. The youngsters and the members of the grass-root communities in the neighbourhood get together happily.

    After they create their Facebook page “Sesame and Green Bean Mission”, the number of volunteers participating in the activities increases more rapidly, and more and more supplies are collected for distribution. Even the band room jointly operated by Ceci’s boyfriend XO (played by Calvin Duncan) and his friends is running out of space to store the supplies! Looking at the problem of the decline in service quality, the three are worrying about how to resolve it ...

    Guardian Angel

    As the love life of Ellen (played by Catherine CHAU) hits rock bottom, she escapes from reality and goes back to Tai O, where she grew up but never liked, to isolate herself from other people. At the same time, the Postmaster (played by Joe CHEUNG) is about to retire, and he hands over the important responsibility of feeding the stray cats to Ellen.

    Since then, Ellen enjoys the cats’ company. Every day, she watches the cats eat and drink, yawn, and lick their hair ... The wound in her soul is magically cured! The trust from the cats makes Ellen feel the simplest and direct connection of life, and she once again feels the meaning of life that she is “being needed”.

    After falling in love with the cats, Ellen gradually notices that there are many problems around her, which are related to the stray cats. She gives a hand out of her strong sense of justice, and embarks on the road of an animal welfare volunteer. In the process, she meets the like-minded Minnie (played by Pancy CHAN). They gather more volunteers and organise activities, and they are determined to turn Tai O into a harmonious community for people and cats. Surprisingly, it turns out that this road of volunteer is actually an opportunity for Ellen to know Tai O again ...

    Round and Round

    This is a story of how three female volunteers of different ages give and receive help, and support each other, when facing breast cancer.

    With the support of her husband Rock (played by WONG Tak-bun), Step (played by KAN Mo-wah) starts the social enterprise “Circles” together with a friend Ching (played by LAI Yuk-ching). They design post-surgery bras by themselves to help breast cancer patients who have undergone mastectomy regain the value and dignity of being a woman. They also reserve some space in their shop for fellow breast cancer patients volunteering at the shop to reunite and support each other.

    Kwai-heung (played by NG Yuen-yee) is a breast cancer survivor in her sixties. One day, Step pays her a visit and helps restore her long-gone balanced body shape. Kwai-heung is now confident again to leave her home, and even volunteers at Circles.

    Journalist Merci (played by LUNG Siu-kwan) is about to marry Nicky (played by CHAN Wing-wai) when she is unfortunately diagnosed with breast cancer. Informed that the treatment might affect their plan of starting a family, Merci is afraid of telling Nicky. When doing a news story on Circles, she is inspired by others’ sharing.

    In Circles’ first initiative of distributing post-surgery bras for free, Kwai-heung and Merci are among the team of volunteers. To Merci, it no longer matters who are giving help and who are receiving it. What is important is that Circles offers a supportive platform for breast cancer patients, where they find the silver lining that enables them to carry on from fellow survivors …

    Chi-chung (played by Kelvin CHAN) was a social worker of Child Services.

The elderly happily interacted with her daughter, resulting in Chi-chung began to do voluntary work with her daughter by visiting the elderly in elderly centres or elderly homes. Subsequently, he even quitted his job and established a social enterprise called “Angel Bobo”, which organises activities involving children visiting the elderly.

    The volunteer activities are well received by parents and attract media attention. When Chi-chung is actively involved in promoting the activities, some reporters begin to question Angel Bobo’s practice of charging the volunteers. Chi-chung’s best friend Tony (played by Himmy WONG) also turns against him. Coupled with the increase in the number of activities, Chi-chung very much feels the pressure. While sharing happiness with others, Chi-chung’s smile disappeared without a trace.

    At the time of confusion, Chi-chung recalls the past, he travels through the old estates, finds the interpersonal relationship of the old times and rethinks about his original intention of working as a volunteer ...

    A Different Choice

    Ah Ho (played by Terence CHUI), a middle-aged taxi driver who leads a stiff and rigid life, reunites with his former secondary schoolmate Ah Man (played by Crystal LEUNG), who is a volunteer, by chance. After their reunion, Ah Man invites Ah Ho to join a team of volunteer tour guides. Ah Ho is deeply convinced that it is destiny that brings Ah Man and him together.

    When doing voluntary work, Ho meets Mr LO (played by WONG Shee-tong), an eccentric old man who lives alone, and Mr POON (played by Marx CHEUNG), a veteran volunteer who loves bossing people around. This makes Ah Ho fluster and lose his confidence all of a sudden.

    With the encouragement of Ah Man, Ho works with the team of volunteer tour guides and plans a trip for Mr LO together, in order to make Mr LO’s dream come true. By doing so, Ah Ho appreciates the pleasure of cooperating and sharing with other people.

    The Sound of Celluloid

    YIU Kai-kai (played by Fish LIEW) is a confident novel translator. A random encounter with LUI Chi-wah (played by Emotion CHEUNG), a man who is eager to watch films but has lost his sight, triggered her interest in volunteering for audio description. She partakes in training courses and dedicates a lot of energy to audio description.

    However, her first attempt of audio description service was not very successful. Chi-wah, formerly an experienced film critic, criticised her performance rather harshly!

    Badly struck by this failure, can Kai-kai regain her confidence in audio description? In the end, can her voice engrave the images of the film in Chi-wah’s mind?
