It was a pleasure to welcome visitors from England, 4th generation members of Cairns’ Tung Yep family – Helen and Andrew, who were in Cairns last week visiting their grandfather Bishop George Tung Yep.

We are pleased they took the opportunity to visit the Lit Sung Temple collection at CADCAI and learn about their early family connections.

Their great grandmother Maggie Leong Hong (bottom photo), who came to Cairns as a 16-year-old bride, was a regular user of the Lit Sung Temple during her life time as a resident of Cairns Chinatown.
