Artist-in-residence Programme with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta
The Helena May sponsored accommodation for some of the overseas musicians performing with The Hong Kong Sinfonietta as a way to utilise the Club's resources to help promote musical performances for the general public in Hong Kong. Conductor Scott Yoo and violinist Mengla Huang, both of whom performed at the Hong Kong Arts Festival, have made use of this programme.

English Reading Sessions
The Helena May volunteers conduct reading and conversation sessions for primary school children to promote the speaking of English. Books are provided from The Helena May Library. A "Reading with Children at Home" workshop was also organised for parents to raise their interest and skills in reading with their children at home.

Scottish Country Dance Classes
Community Outreach volunteers organised Scottish Country Dance Classes at primary schools around the territory, bringing with them dance videos, traditional Scottish costumes, books, postcards and shortbread to promote Scottish culture and facilitate cultural exchange. The targeted recipients were Primary Students aged between 9-12. This activity was fun with the benefit that it provided the children with additional exercise.

The Helena May Exchange of Library Books Project (HELP)
Second hand English books donated from The Helena May Library and club members were provided to primary schools to promote the use of English reading resources. Donated books are borrowed by students and shared with their parents. This collection is circulated among participating schools.

Tung Chung Brass Band
Learning from the Social Welfare Department that the Tung Chung District was in need of healthy recreational activities for teenagers, The Helena May collaborated with the Outlying Islands Women's Association to investigate the needs of the Tung Chung Brass Band. The Helena May donated $50,000 to the Association for the purchase of 27 trumpets and 2 maces in 2006. The cheque presentation ceremony took place at The Helena May's 90th Anniversary Tea Party.
