This year marks the 10th anniversary of LCCA. This decade has brought its challenges, but has also brought us much to be proud of. We continue to strive to establish a stable, long-term financial basis for our work; despite this backdrop of uncertainty, we are proud of our successes. We have made rich and varied contributions to the lives and welfare of both the Chinese community and the wider community of Leeds.

Here, on behalf of LCCA, I express my wholehearted thanks to the authorities, social organisations, and many individuals who have supported LCCA. Our supporters are many and diverse Chinese and English, young and old, acade-


mic and commercial, administrators and private. We have an active management committee, many hard-working volunteers, and dedicated full-time and part-time staff. Whatever your function, I want to say 'thank you' for your support and contribution to LCCA. All your efforts are invaluable and without your commitment and hard work, LCCA could not exist.

During the past year, LCCA, as before, has been fulfilling its mission of service to the Chinese community and also enabling it to be better integrated into the wider community. We have organised diverse activities and offered a wide range of services. In February, we held our Chinese New Year celcbrations in the West Yorkshire Playhouse - a hugely enjoyable and successful occasion. More recently, in September, we held our Mid-Autumn Business Dinner, an event designed to bring Chinese and British business together, to develop friendship and cultural exchange. In Chinese health advice services, we are continuing to work with Touchstone to promote healthy living and to improve access to the National Health Services. In elderly people's welfare, we continue, in partnership with Leeds Chinese Women's Group, to run a twice-weekly Luncheon Club. In education and training, we continue to run classes in English and Mandarin. Our centre manager has been successful in obtaining funding from the Local Network Fund to enhance the unity of the Chinese community and we are continually seeking ways of working co-operatively with otherorganisations. Above all, we always try to do our best to serve Chinese people and the Chinese community.

LCCA is still facing financial difficulties. We still need to find a stable long-term financial basis for our work. Our greatest asset is the support and dedication which so many bring to this Association. My greatest wish is that we can all continue to work together to develop LCCA, to build up a healthy, auspicious, strong and united Chinese community.
