The Helena May sits along Garden Road in Central on Hong Kong Island, across the street from the US Consulate.
In 1916, Lady Helena May, the wife of the Governor, Sir Henry May, established The Helena May for the promotion of the welfare of women and girls in Hong Kong. To this day, members are actively involved in charitable projects.
The Helena May was declared a heritage building in 1993. It has served since its opening as a meeting place for numerous women’s organizations and community events. It has also served as a venue for many fund-raising events.
In 2008, a group of friends and I held a special fund-raiser at The Helena May for the children of Mongolia, for educational sponsorships and our annual summer camp.
There is a wonderful atmosphere inside and if you visit Hong Kong, it’s a nice place to stay.
