Corporate Social Responsibility

Lord Stow’s Bakery: supporting concerns close to community & heart.

The Andrew Stow Memorial Fund was established in 2007, following Andrew’s passing.  It is administered by the International Ladies’ Club of Macau and supports the education of one local student.  Its current beneficiary has been assisted through secondary education in Macau and now studies at Plymouth University, UK.

British Business Association of Macao (BBAM) – Andrew & his sister, Eileen Stow were founding members of BBAM.  Our Company is one of BBAM’s major financial supporters and Eileen remains an active member of its Management Committee.

Chinese Opera for Tam Gung Festival, Coloane – Life in our Village would not be the same without the annual staging of this traditional art form in its bamboo opera house.  It is fixed as part of our calendar of giving.

Associacao De Beneficencia “Quatro Pagodes” Coloane – For over 70 years this charity has been assisting our small community and giving back to our elderly, the historic footprint of our Village.

Other Coloane Charities: Son I Association & Maria Meng Sam – We provide annual assistance: both financially and in kind.

International Ladies Club of Macau (ILCM) – Andrew supported this Club’s charity work since its inception in 1982.  The legacy of his support remains ongoing through our Company’s annual commitment.

Association of Rehabilitation of Drug Abusers of Macao (ARTM)  – Andrew instigated our support to ARTM, giving direct rice supplies from local Village Merchants.  We are now able to supplement our assistance with an annual sponsorship.

Macau Rugby Club (for children) – We give annually to encourage kids to enjoy this British sport on Macau soil.

Hong Kong Stand-up Comedy Festival – organised by Take Out Comedy Club – we love to laugh and encourage the talent of tomorrow.

The Movember Foundation – In 2017 we began our commitment to spread the word of The Movember Foundation, the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale. Our Company encouraged male Team members to sprout moustaches during November, pledging Mop 1,000 for each moustache grown. On top of that, 50% of revenue from Cappuccino sales for November, was added. Our Company is committed in its support to Movember from now on.
