You may recall the article I wrote on the Mandela Day “Dragon’s Den” https://www.sagoodnews.co.za/mandela-day-changing-stumbling-blocks-stepping-stones/ event a month ago in which Georgina Marques firstname.lastname@example.org, and Olivia March, associated with the Nelson Mandela Capture Site in Howick, organised a fun evening, first to celebrate Mandela Day and second, to raise money for six local Midlands NGO’s (Non-governmental Organisations).
R13050 was raised from +/- 100 local donors.
The event, at the Notties Hotel, sponsored by Clive Foss was well-supported and great fun.
The six NGO’s were:
Khazimula Children’s Project – presented by Liny Bradford.
Kamberg Valley Association – presented by Claire March
Midlands Community College – presented by Margaret Johnstone
Rural Animal Welfare – presented by Lauren Williams.
Alternatives to Violence project – presented by Buyile Mpungose
The Howick Museum – presented by Tau Lenkena.
The winner was the Khazimula Children’s Project.
I sent the story out via the Nottingham Road Landowners association c/o of Janine O’Neill and the Gowrie Homeowners Association c/o Fiona Spence .
Below was the surprise response:
This is a fantastic initiative.
If I could get the banking details of all these NGO’s, our family will make a donation to each one.
