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.

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.
