Chairman of London Chinatown Lions Club 2012 Dragon Boat Festival 2012
Ex President of London Chinatown Lions Club 2007 / 2008

Fiona Falcone 梁藝莎

Co-Founder, PlayCantonese

Categories
Charities. Community. Culture. Education. Social Enterprise.

Fiona Falcone is included here as the co-founder of PlayCantonese, currently the UK's only Cantonese playgroup. PlayCantonese, run entirely by volunteers as a non-profit organisation, seeks to provide a Cantonese speaking environment for babies and toddlers who can learn Cantonese through song, stories and play.

After marrying an Italian and giving birth to their first child Fiona looked around for Cantonese language support for babies. She was surprised to find no meetups, playgroups, sensory classes or music lessons in any Chinese dialect. After foreign language studies in Italian and Mandarin, she was focused on not wasting the precious time from birth to school when children soak up languages. Fortunately, her search did find the talented and highly organised Helen Lee who offered her artistic eye to work together in creating a Cantonese playgroup.
