Corinne Richeux Hua, B.E.M is a British/French national who studied Chinese at Cambridge University in the late 80’s, and has lived in Shanghai since 1993.  She left her HR position with PricewaterhouseCoopers in 2005 to pursue a new career in the newly emerging non-profit sector.

Corinne is the founder of Stepping Stones, a non-profit organization that teaches English to more than ten thousand disadvantaged children each year in Shanghai and rural China. In the 13 years since its conception, Stepping Stones has also initiated other projects, including English teacher training, digital literacy and eyecare. 

Corinne and her husband Hua Lei have two grown up children who are now studying and working in London.

Corinne will talk about the personal journey which led to her setting up a non-profit organization in Shanghai, the many interesting opportunities and unexpected challenges that she encountered once she embarked on that path, some of the fascinating things she learned in the process about non-profit work in China, and why she continues to love her work at Stepping Stones.

Congratulations to Corinne who was awarded the British Empire Medal by Prince Andrew in Shanghai:

No.5 The Bund (corner of Guangdong Lu)


After 23 years serving in one of Shanghai’s most iconic neighbourhoods, it is bittersweet for us to announce the official closing of M on the Bund and Glam dining lounge & bar on 15 February, 2022.


Over the years, we have served over three million guests across local and worldwide communities, among them some influential and prominent names. With your support, we have become more than a restaurant of excellent food and warm hospitality, but also a platform where like-minded people gather and connect. We are proud of the numerous initiatives we have founded and supported and humbled by the awards we have received, for they have made us one of the city’s most distinguished dining establishments.

It has been a tremendous pleasure for us to serve the community over the past two decades, and we owe an immense debt of gratitude to everyone who has loved our restaurants and supported our businesses. Your trust and loyal patronage have allowed us to grow and mature. Therefore, while we are sad to depart, we are more than grateful for the moments spent with you, and we hope your time with us has left you with nothing but happy and indelible memories.

As we bid our final goodbye, we would like to create a memory photo album of stories and good times. We kindly invite anyone wishing to share their memorable moments with us by sending photos to [email protected], or bring them along when you visit.

For those who would like to send their farewell in person, our restaurants will remain in full operation until the closing date, and we would definitely love to see you again. Please make all reservations via our website, Chope and Dianping.

Together, let’s complete this journey in joy and fulfilment.
