LCCA was founded in 1978, with the aim of developing and expanding businesses in Chinatown and representing British Chinese to engage effectively with the British government . LCCA was also devoted to working closely with the London Chinese Community Centre in providing a wide range of essential services for the many Chinese “living in the United Kingdom and with a heart connecting to China”. More importantly, LCCA served as an outlet for Chinese businesses to voice their concerns and together bringing better conditions and prosperity to the whole of Chinatown.
From aiding the local Chinese community in London at their moments of need, LCCA spared no efforts in responding to disaster relief activities in China. Over the years, LCCA has raised funds for many China's disaster struck areas, including the Daxinganling fire in 1987, the East China floods in 1991 and the widespread flooding in the Yangtze River in 1998 etc etc.. LCCA has also donated considerable amount of money to the construction of new schools and hospitals in mainland China benefitting many in these worthwhile projects
The LCCA maintains a close relationship and bond with the Hong Kong's New Territories Community. One notable participation by LCCA was the “Preserve The Villages And Clans Action” organised by New Territories Heung Yee Kuk.
LCCA proudly remains committed to its aim in serving the Chinese business community in London. Today it is also the official organisor of the annual Mid-Autumn Festival and Chinese New Year Celebrations held in Chinatown. Over the years these events have not only attracted people throughout Britain but from Europe and around the world. In particular the Chinese New Year Festival is now the biggest Chinese New Year celebrations held outside of Asia, it has become an integral part of the London event calendar and is the biggest outdoor event in London attended by hundreds of thousands people each year.
London Chinatown has been transformed into
a cleaner, safer and more enjoyable place for its visitors and the local community over the last four decades.
Working with the local council and other stakeholders, LCCA will continue
to develop and make improvements to meet the changing needs of the area.
